From the Aberdeen legislative candidate who declared how hard her classes were and “#f__knorthern” in her twitter feed, it looks like Democrat Nikki Bootz should have appreciated her classes a little more. Especially the parts where she’s required to communicate in the English language.
But don’t take my word for it. Read for yourself:
I don’t see a disclaimer, as required under South Dakota law. But that’s a minor offense against the electorate when you look at the egregious offenses against our native tongue.
Honestly, I’m not sure where she’s coming from with most of her letter. Not just where the letter switches schizophrenically from a third person to a first person narrative between paragraphs 3 and 4. It’s the rest the content that’s not just odd, it’s downright bizarre.
She goes on about how Democrats are being “outnumbered by Republicans by more than 1000 voters is due to gerrymandering.” Aside from the fact no one cares, I question whether she knows what gerymandering is, since that’s a voter registration issue.
Of course, it devolves into semi-coherent slogans. just because it has to when the content runs dry. “Ms. Nikki is serious when it comes to politics, she has strong views on specific political issues that directly affect her own family.” So, she doesn’t care about issues that don’t? “Keeping our jobs local and open,” which means what? She wants lots of local unemployment?
She does take a stab at a position on the second amendment, where she sort of claims that she supports the right to bear arms, because “South Dakota’s economy depends a lot on it. Hunting is our own personal right for food and sport and aids in keeping farmers’ crops safe. We also have the right to bear arms in defense and to be prepared to defend ourselves as needed.”
Curiously, her declaration of support for gun rights in her fundraising letter seems to fly in the face of prior statements, such as this from facebook:
Which I had posted here, where apparently she didn’t believe that legislators deal with abortion or gun rights.
What do you think? Should she have taken a run at draft two, three, …or fifteen before this mess was sent out?
