If The South Dakota Republican U.S. Senate Candidates Were Superheroes. . .

The old joke about U. S. senators is that they all believe they are one election away from being the most powerful human on the planet. If that's the case, candidates must have secret dreams about being superheroes. Here, in no particular order, are the South Dakota Republican candidates as their true superhero selves.

Mike Rounds is Elongated Man. He's really elastic and tough to pin down. He smiles a lot and is a poor man's Mitt Romney.

Larry Rhoden is West River Rancher striving to adapt to new political realities. The Two-Gun Kid came from 1880s Wild West and adapted to the current time quite handily..

Finally, I'm not sure Annette Bosworth is a real candidate at this point. She frequently seems invisible. Space Ghost's sidekick Jan never became a fully realized character. She could become invisible.

Jan is the character in the middle.

I'll update the page to add Venner should he choose to enter the race. If Democrats challenge Rick Weiland, I'll work up a similar post.
