A friend in DC told be the Washington Post had a photo that included Kristi Noem at the Great Wall of China. I did not have time to chase it down, but a couple SD bloggers found it earlier today. Below is a copy from one of the blogs.
The dude in front of her is not her husband, but US Rep Aaron Schock, R-Ill., last week. A budget hawk or two such as Paul Ryan were also along for this boondoggle--Just a little hypGOPprisy.
The Great Wall is a wonder of the world, but Kristi Noem is not. She is just a free-loading hypocrite selling SD constituents a continuous manure spreading of political crap.
Two days of her in Congress is too much..let alone two years or two more years of congressional indolence and sloth.

Meanwhile back here on the south central South Dakota prairie, we actually got some rain and snow after a beautiful 75 degree day or two with way too much wind and blowing dirt and smoke, but no tornado. Winner Airport National Weather Service observed about 2.16 inches of precipitation since the start of the blowing rain and snow.
