S.D. delegate protests with a timely facepalm

It’s been a long time since the roll call of states at any national political convention has been anything but good theater, so Rep. Isaac Latterell, of Tea (southwest of Sioux Falls) played the part well when he engaged in a little theater last evening on night two of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

“I just think that it’s a sad day for the Republican party,” Latterell told the Sioux Falls Argus Leader. “I don’t think that the candidate that was chosen has a chance of winning the election, or being different than the other nominee.”

Latterell was a Ted Cruz supporter and said his facepalm display was an act of protest against a “corrupt RNC.”
