It's hardly news when one of America's 50 state governors is being scrutinized for something or other, but when it connects with a TV-ad icon like Travelocity's "Roaming Gnome", it can't be ignored.

MSNBC's Joy Reid clearly had a "ball" with it tonight. Here's the first two minutes. There was more after the commercial break.

There goes Kristi Noem, o'er the buffalo's home.
Where dear, are you going today?
They say it's absurd, and are passing the word,
that the skies are your playground today.

Noem, Noem on a plane.
Where dear, are you going today?
The left is perturbed, with the mentality of a herd,
and they're crying and pouty all day.

A very popular and effective elected official.

Better start smearing her now, says the media, she might be a threat to the New World Order.

I made it very clear: "Roaming Noem" deserves a moment in the spotlight here in the single category of artful text publishing.

Why?

Because I say it does.

If anything really dramatic were to come of this Kristi Noem's taxpayer funded travel expenses, that would just be "gravy" for me. I don't expect it.

Over the Red River Valley,
she’d sit in that airplane and fly.
And run her fingers through seventy million dollars,
and wonder “Joe, must every well we’ve drilled go dry?”

Like a garden gnome waiting for a plane,

"Exclusive: GOP governor Kristi Noem, potential Trump successor, used state aircraft for tens of thousands of dollars in political travel"
 
quote
Newly unearthed flight logs show South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem used a state airplane to travel to right wing political events around the country, a revelation that has state lawmakers [including state Republican lawmaker Taffy Howard, cited in this report] questioning whether she violated a state law forbidding political and personal use of the aircraft.

If I thought this was some kind of scheme to embarrass the governor of South Dakota, or even worse, deprive South Dakota residents of their governor's extraordinary beneficence, I wouldn't be here. Dan Newhauser's article in the Raw Story is a report, like any other report. The difference is the photo image of the governor's air travel log.

I've done my homework. I trust Dan Newhauser. I think you can too.

Oh, flight logs, of course!

So, the fact that the governor traveled on state owned aircraft to conduct state business is evidence that she was abusing her privilege, but the fact that Bill Clinton traveled on the Lolita Express to Orgy Island is insufficient to suspect that he might have been involved in Epstein's escapades.

I get it. No, wait, I don't get it.

From Daniel Newhauser's story:
 
quote
The flight logs, which were discovered for Raw Story by public records activist Michael Petrelis, are often difficult to decipher. It's not clear where the plane was on any given day of a multi-day trip because each trip's entire itinerary is listed on each day the trip occurred. The governor's spokesman also identified a few areas where he said the logs are incorrect.

Raw Story pieced together Noem's schedule using posts on social media and press reports detailing her whereabouts. The flight logs did not include any information about the events for which state planes were being used or who was on the state planes at the time. However, the governor's spokesman did provide Raw Story with a full accounting of the trips in question.

It is also unclear exactly how much each trip cost taxpayers. Raw Story calculated a ballpark estimate by determining the air mileage of each itinerary and multiplying that by $5.95, the cost-per-mile cited on the flight logs for the use of a King Air 200, the plane on which all of the flights in question occurred.

So, the logs are reportedly inaccurate, incomplete and do not say who was on the flights. Guilty as charged!

How the governor has been getting her props.

This is one of the planes that South Dakota governor Kristi Noem has had available to her. She wants to upgrade the state's executive branch air fleet, replacing two older-models with one new or newer-model aircraft.

Tupper's ware contains the following slice, leftover or left out of the headlines (a decidedly rinselberg-esque literary device):
 
quote
Last year, Gov. Noem came under fire for flying around the country to campaign for President Donald Trump. Her staff said she never used state planes for that travel. They said she flew commercial, or caught rides with other campaigners in their planes.

I think it's a transparency, records-keeping and executive oversight kind of issue.

I doubt that it's "just" Governor Noem or "just" South Dakota among all 50 states.

Gavin Newsom may have expensed trips for himself from Sacramento to the moon and back without submitting the proper records for public scrutiny and for California state executive branch and legislative branch scrutiny. But there's not a comparable tagline like the "Roaming Noem."

"Gruesome Newsom"..?
