Phil Thompson: Sali, Fair Head Dress Were Hits

DFO, over the weekend I spent some time working the KCRCC booth at the fair. One topic that came up was Kevin Richart's critisim of Bill Sali. Specifically, saying that Sali's feather bands for kids was intolerant of Native Americans. By using the word intolerant, Richart opened the door for others to start using race against Mr. Sali. I bet I passed out 500 of those things on Friday night. Nothing can substitue for the smile on a little ones face when they get one of those feathers. Some of my best friends are from that other party....their kids were happily wearying Sali feathers. One prominate democrat Who will remain nameless refused a feather cap on the grounds his wife will KILL him. I was also pleasently surprised to see Mr. Sali at the fair himself. I found Sali to be intelligent, engaging, humorous, and passionate for the success of America. Sali gets a lot of negative attention in this blog from yourself, Noah, and your biased guest from the Idaho Statesman. Why don't you spend a little time with Sali, do an interview....get to know the man. He is not perfect but he is not the person this blog paints him. Richart seems cheesed that no one from his party came up with the brilliant feather idea.
