I mentioned Governor M. Michael Rounds's neener-neener to State Representative Mitch Fargen (D-8/Flandreau). For your enjoyment, here's an excerpt from the governor's letter to the editor:
I understand the legislative process is sometimes complicated and freshmen [sic] legislators have a steep learning curve. Let's just chalk these misstatements and opinions by Rep. Fargen to inexperience and a healthy dose of political rhetoric that will, hopefully, change as your representative becomes more familiar with the process. [Gov. M. Michael Rounds, letter to the editor, Madison Daily Leader, 2009.02.16, p. 3].
Oh, I think Mitch will get plenty familiar with the process: if he keeps talking straight and fighting for what's right, the voters of District 8 will keep sending him back to Pierre for many years to come.
(And note that, in Governor Rounds's world, "opinions" are a product of inexperience. Of course.)
