Unruh Gives Political Advice

Good old Doc Unruh is back at it giving us all chiropractic political directives. Unruh told Dave Kranz how the Republicans better put up someone who is a crazy religious anti-abortion loon like him or they will lose the election.

"Dr. Allen Unruh, a Sioux Falls chiropractor, looks for the real conservative. In a presidential primary, the nominee has to be anti-abortion. "If not, Republicans will be in for a rude wakening. They will lose," he says. "At a convention, I would vote for the most conservative man running. There may be a lot of people voting for a third-party candidate if they do not nominate a true conservative."

Unruh's comments elaborate the stalemate in the Republican party. If they let the religious loons run the show, regular Republicans and anyone outside the party will not vote for their candidates. If they don't let the religious loons run the show the religious loons will leave.

The fundamentalist vote was largely exaggerated in the last election but they do make a portion of their voters. Losing them just adds to the list of people who have abandoned the Republicans. Keeping them loses everyone else.

In the current fashion of who do people look like pictures that have been all the rage on South Dakota blogs, we have included one above. We always thought Unruh looked like the no neck narrator from Rocky Horror Picture Show.

HT to CCK for finding the news article.

Since nobody else has pointed this out. All four abortion laws proposed in the legislature have died.

What was that they said last year? If last years ban failed it would set back the anti-abortion groups by about twenty years.

Maybe next year our legislature could work on some better ways to reduce abortion, like a comprehensive prevention bill.
