Memorabilia from my mailbox

This week brought me two great items for my political collection. One was sent by a friend, and I found the other on eBay.

The first one made me laugh, and I almost wanted to put this bumper sticker on my car because it was so funny. And I reiterate, Almost wanted to.


“Ridin’ with Biden.”  That’s a pretty good one in reference to the Draft Joe Biden movement.  The second is more serious, and more related to South Dakota politics:


It’s far from being in perfect shape, but this is an original litho (screen printed on metal) pin for Herseth for Governor. Not sure if it’s for Ralph (campaigns in ’58, ’60 & ’62) or Lars (’86), but it’s one I didn’t have in my collection. I suspect it was for Lars.

    I’m pretty sure that’s Ralph Herseth. He actually ran for gov four times – 1956, 1958, 1960, and 1962. He won in 1958 and lost the other three.

    Lars also ran once – he lost to George Mickelson in 1986.

    So the Herseths are 1-4 in elections for governor. Maybe someone should tell Kevin Woster 🙂

    Joe Biden hasn’t driven his own car in decades.

    That’s reminds me of the truly despicable comments Biden made in 2008 when he accused the driver of the car that killed his wife years ago of being drunk.

    What a POS.
