Holabird AdvocateProviding all the news we see fit to print since 2002!

Cousin Al's Newspaper, USA TODAY, reports that Newt Gingrich is thinking about running for president in 2012, but won't make up his mind about it until some time next spring. So why did he say anything at all? He is using the old "let's run it up the flag pole and see who salutes it" trick. If there is no resultant buzz, he will fade away by next spring. Time will tell on this one. At least this gives the Republicans someone besides Sarah Palin to vote for. GAG!
Closer to home Kristi Noem has been drawn first blood in the U.S. House race. It was pretty much a forgone conclusion that she would. After all, she has to make her opponent in this election, incumbent Stephanie Herseth Sandlin appear as though she is unfit for office. It doesn't necessarily give us the voter a reason to vote for Noem beyond that. Conversely, Herseth Sandlin can't fight back because it will make her look weak. I wish that Noem could have kept her hands clean and just ran on her strengths rather than Herseth Sandlin's weaknesses. This is one ad that was run up the flagpole that I won't salute!
