That is John Thune, Republican senator from South Dakota. I was doing a little research on the various Republican senators from around the nation and was caught by the opening line in this guy's bio.



John Thune grew up in Murdo, South Dakota. His interest in politics was sparked at a young age after making five of six free throws during a freshman basketball game. He was greeted by a spectator who said, "I noticed you missed one." That spectator happened to be well-known sports enthusiast and U.S. Representative Jim Abdnor. The introduction was the start of a friendship that ignited John's career in public service.

I found this quite fascinating, as I am sure most of you will.

No, just two dweebs for whom the phrase "Emphasize the positve." is meaningless.

You rarely see folk who look quite like this, these days.

I forgot the movie title. Redford plays an idealistic novice politician, who along the way becomes a pawn of his handlers.

Using "there" instead of "their" or "they're" is a grammatical error not a spelling error.

One should be careful about sticking their head in one end of a donkey if they aren't sure which end it is. I don't think the person you were attempting to correct was at the rear end paull.
