Pischke attacks Schoenbeck, Pischke rumored to be seeking majority leader

After his win in this past June primary, Tom Pischke must be feeling secure in his britches as in today’s Rapid City Journal, he’s out attacking the current Senate President Pro Tempore Lee Schoenbeck for not drinking the kool-aid on the Citizens for Liberty Scorecard:

Senator Lee Schoenbeck’s recent op-ed in the Rapid City Journal trying to smear some of the state’s top conservative Republican legislators like Rep. Phil Jensen, Tony Randolph and Taffy Howard using the Elevate Rapid City scorecard as the tool, is like Congresswoman Liz Cheney telling us who’s a good conservative Republican using the Democratic party platform as the measuring stick.


When it comes to scorecards, SD Citizen’s for Liberty scorecard is one of the best for showing how your legislators are voting in alliance with the Constitution and the South Dakota Republican party platform.

Read it in the Rapid City Journal.

What’s triggering Tom? Aside from sucking up to the cherry-picked scorecard idiots, and trying to continue the battle of the months-past primary election, where Pischke launched an ad campaign attempting to smear Senate President Pro Tempore Lee Schoenbeck (and a postcard or two that went out pointing out Pischke’s voting record), the word I’m hearing is that Senator-Elect Pischke hopes to leapfrog over all incumbent Senators and run for Senate Majority Leader when the group gets together after the election.

Tom Pischke as Senate Majority Leader? Hmm.. I think that most of us can think of nearly 30-some other people who would be more qualified to lead the Senate Republican majority over Tom Pischke.

But, that’s a battle for the end of the year.  Stay tuned.

        1. Whomever is majority leader will be formidable for Congress next time it’s open.

  1. Majority Leader of Deadbeat Dad’s Coalition but SD State Senate? Hard No! Terrible message to send to kids.

  2. Young Mr. Pischke, among the insaner fellows in the legislatures, should stick to mad-dadding. He does not have the smarts or the chops to be a leader and would immediately sink the senate into a bogging they could never recover from.

    Mr. Pischke, Senate Majority Leader? BuwahahahaHAHAHAHAHA

  3. Pischke taking on Schoenbeck reminds me of the guy who brought a knife to a gun fight.

  4. Pischke and Aylward have no business criticizing anyone on Republican principles. Both are Libertarians that wouldn’t get elected without the R behind their name. They should leave the party and make way for authentic conservative Republicans.

      1. “If you analyze it, I believe the very heart-and-soul of conservatism is libertarianism… The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom … There is a legitimate need in an orderly society for some government to maintain freedom … But again, I stand on my statement that I think that libertarianism and conservatism are traveling the same path.”
        –Ronald Reagan

        Was President Reagan a Republican in name only?

      2. The previous two ghost writers don’t have a foothold on reality concerning either Pischke or Aylward. Pischke is one of those guys who lightens up tense moments and is an expert on matters most know nothing about. Aylward is a constitutionally driven deep thinker with a rigid moral code and unflappable.
        Calling either of them RINO’s is gut wrenching humor and incredibly out of touch.
