Will the new snakeskin boots Rep. drink the ethanol?

December 9, 2010 11:32

The real litmus test for ‘South Dakota’s Sarah Palin’ Kristi Noem will be if she follows John Thune’s lead and drinks the ethanol subsidy Kool-aid.

So far we love Kristi Noem. The only thing her opponent could use against her was the fact that she had 20 speeding tickets in the last ten years. Give me a break. Its South Dakota! Everywhere is a long way from nowhere.

Her integrity, independence and humble hard working background are all very appealing. The fact that she wears snakeskin boots should have PETA fans pulling out their hair. How can you not like her?

She is interested in the Agriculture committee which makes sense being from a farming state. But the $26 billion wasted so far on ethanol subsidies has come under fire from opponents as diverse as the Sierra Club and  Freedom Works. Fifty eight groups signed a letter sent to both houses asking that the ethanol subsidies be stopped. Yet Sen. John Thune wants it continued.

Even Al Gore admitted that ethanol is a waste of money and causes increased food prices while doing nothing for the environment.

Lets hope that Kristi Noem has better sense and does not yield to the big money hand outs by the ethanol industry to keep this boondoggle going.
