Cole should come out to Pine Ridge or any Lakota/Dakota reservation in South Dakota and grace us with his Ivy league intellect and help us simple minded folks understand why we should vote for a candidate who is so completely anti Indian and incompetent. The reason 99% of the Lakota vote went against Noem was because we actually know how to read out here and we understand the budgets she supports devastate Indian Health, Indian education,Roads, and so forth. To say it simple we know her and the danger she would be as a US Senator. Cole was obviously never taught the most basic rule in the business and that is that ALL POLITICS ARE LOCAL. Cole is not a constituent, he's not a member of any South Dakota tribe. Instead of writing columns from the safety of Atlanta he should come out here and make his case or better yet go door belling for her in Pine Ridge. Indian country has an outstanding record of supporting Republicans when Republicans support them but thats not the case with Noem and to pretend otherwise crosses a moral line. We haven't heard much from Cole since the November elections perhaps he's done licking his wounds and he's ready to be an Indian mascot for the GOP again. He reminds me of that one student in every class that couldn't wait to sharpen the teachers pencils or clean the chalk board just anything to win favor.
