    Both are from the tiny hamlet of Big Stone City in far-off NE South Dakota. If there was ever an example of a political “Odd Couple,” these two are it. One is far, far to the left. The other far, far to the right. One is a gentleman. The other is a screaming loon that, poetically, lives next-door to a pig CAFO.

    Ms. Tyler is among the insanest and least effective in the legislatures ever. I wish this young man all the luck in the world, but I bet he beats his opponent by 25%
