My Interview With Senator John Thune

At the 2008 Republican Convention in Minneapolis, I had the pleasure of meting and interviewing South Dakota Senator John Thune. 

As a heterosexual alpha male, I have to say that even I was taken aback by how tall and handsome this guy is. Yet make no mistake about it. Senator Thune is no substanceless pretty boy. He is a true conservative Republican in the Ronald Reagan mode. More importantly, John Thune did what no other Republican could do. He took down Tom Daschle.

For years Daschle was able to portray a moderate to conservative image in hi home state due to his cozy relationship with the state’s paper, the Argus Leader. John Thune came along and showed South Dakota what a true conservative was and is. With that, I bring you my pre-election interview with Senator John Thune.  

1) What are the most important issues of 2008?

JT: “Energy, National Security, and the Courts. We must remember how important the courts are.”

2) Who are your 3 favorite political heroes?

JT: “Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan, and here’s one for you…Jim Abner. Look up Jim Abner.”

3) How would you like to be remembered 100 years from now? What would you want people to say about John Thune the person?

JT: “I want to be remembered as somebody who tried to lead with integrity.”

4) Given that you overcame the close relationship between Tom Daschle and the Argus Leader, and beat them both, has a the Republican Party offered a bill yet to place you on Mount Rushmore?

JT: “No, although it is always good to be appreciated. Besides, there’s no more room for anybody on Mount Rushmore. We should build more room for Ronald Reagan.”

It was an absolute pleasure meeting Senator John Thune. He is telegenic, affable, but very serious when he mentions “South Dakota Values.” He is proof that if a person sticks to their principles, they can overcome powerul political and media opponents. His election should be a blueprint for every Republican in America. He walks and stands tall, because he has a straight spine.

I wish him well always. The people of South Dakota are lucky to have him.
