A Week Is Forever In Politics: Mike Huether Edition

On March 9, 2013 Huether was a public servant who returned to his hometown to help a worthy charity.

During the Summit Conference Basketball Tournament, things started to get a bit rocky. Josh Vargas tweeted:
"Sioux Falls Mayor Mike Huether is not above waving like an idiot in the background of live sports commentary"
Vargas posted video.

Then, of course, there's the infamous "Thank goodness I was elected mayor" proclamation that has been ridiculed and criticized here, here, here, here, and here.

On March 15, 2013, he's become a South Dakota meme.

His Honor seems on the way to testing the old proposition that politicians can survive hatred but they can't survive when people start laughing at them.

Update: Apparently, Huether can't take a joke either.
