Joe Doakes from Como Park emails re Kristi Noem’s much-attacked decision on trans athletes in SoDak high school sports:
Conservatives are throwing her under the bus for failing to sign virtue-signaling legislation that would have subjected her state to crippling litigation. The Keyboard Warriors excoriating her in the comments are not footing the bill, and none of their sons or daughters will lose the opportunity to play college sports if she stands up to NCAA.
Her decision is correct: do something smart, or don’t do it at all. If only we could get other governors to think that way.
If you’re a conservative, be careful over what you let wedge you. Or, us.
Pick your battles.
