Libertarian CJ Abernathy announces candidacy for South Dakota Governor.

While Magic Mike Huether was talking about himself incessantly over not running for anything, fully bearded South Dakota Libertarian CJ Abernathy was announcing that he is running for Governor.

Why is he running? One platform plank of Abernathy’s was to proclaim that “if there is no victim, there is no crime,”  which would appear to be a reference to traditional Libertarian platform issues of drugs, prostitution, etc.

According to the Secretary of State’s office, Abernathy will have to collect the signatures of 250 Libertarians to appear on the ballot.

15 agonizing minutes…. Basically, Huether is not running unless people call him.

Just finishing up watching the “Great Mike Huether Ego trip,” which appears to be one of the worst reality shows ever.  Because like an overly dramatic reality show, he drug out the announcement for an overly, overly long time.   Imaging watching the Bachelor yammering on about giving a rose for 15 minutes.  15 agonizing minutes….That’s what it was like, except he was talking about giving the rose to himself.

Basically, Huether isn’t running for anything. But he got to talk about himself for a really long time.
