From my comment section comes more lunacy brought to you from the people who send out press releases for Corinna Robinson.
Apparently, I had the temerity to ask about the association of Kathy Scott & Leslie Wimes to the Corinna Robinson campaign, since Kathy Scott sent out the press release noting “To volunteer or speak to media relations, contact Leslie Wimes..” Yes, I asked the troubling & emotionally crippling question about their actual association with the Corinna Robinson campaign that Kathy was sending out press releases for.
Dang me. Just Dang me. Because my audacious question was met with a fiery response:

I’m not sure when you jumped into bed with Cory H., but it’s getting tongues wagging around South Dakota that the TWO of you are trying to bring her campaign down. I know you need page views so stories like this help. Thanks for the links. My blog is more highly rated than yours so I won’t return the favor. I think Cory’s alliance with you is odd and I do think the voters of South Dakota deserve a viable alternative to Noem. So since it seems that this blog is trying to kill her chances, we’re going to call for a boycott of voting for your advertisers. I guess the primary is around the corner and I know you need women. We’d call for one on Cory’s but he doesn’t have any advertisers. Calling women “crazy” is an old tactic used to keep us in line. Once we go after your pocketbook we’ll see how crazy we are.
So, because I dare to ask questions, they’re putting my advertisers on notice. Really, one of them got a notice, which they passed on.
Aside from it being a completely false statement, it doesn’t make a lot of sense. As I noted to Ms. Scott; As a Florida based blog, they’re going to call for a boycott of my South Dakota political advertisers by Florida voters, who can’t vote for any of the South Dakota candidates anyway.
Not to mention the fact that their readers are Florida Democrats who are even less likely to vote for South Dakota Republicans.
Somehow, I think I’ll soldier on.
But I’m still wondering why they thought they could send out a press release for Corinna Robinson, and what their association with her is.
(Update – I just heard she’s trying to call advertisers. Over her and her friend’s reluctance to explain how they are connected to the Corinna Robinson campaign. This is too funny. )
