It’s good to see that Herseth Sandlin has found something to fill her time in DC now that the South Dakota Democratic Party has officially forgotten to call for “Stephanie, oh Stephanie, wherefore art though Stephanie.” Tom Lawrence with the Mitchell Daily Republic had an entertaining blog post about what she’s been up to lately.
Last week, she took part in the Shakespeare Theatre Company?s third ?Shakespeare and the Law? panel discussion at the Sidney Harman Hall in D.C.
According to Roll Call reporter Neda Semnani, who titled her piece on the event ?To Dream, Perchance to Lobby,? the theme was lobbying and money. It looked at ?Shakespeare, Lobbying and Elizabethan England.?
Lawrence later went on about the highbrow guests SHS shared company with, including several supreme court justices…
Not exactly shaking hands at the county fair and local grocery stores, which SHS has done for years. She may press the South Dakota flesh again, but for the Georgetown grad, this is a social and intellectual strata she enjoys.
Oh, if only South Dakota could be more Shakespearian… I contended that one of the main reasons SHS lost was the fact that she was essentially absent from the previous campaign. The lady was a no show. Not only was she a no show for the campaign but she was absent from South Dakota for the final term she served in Congress. Reason number one is because she didn’t stick up for her state when our will was at odds with her party leadership.
