South Dakota Senator John Thune took the time to escape briefly from the business of lawmaking to show a little Jackrabbit Pride.  Watch how he strolls to the mic and predicts that South Dakota State would make it to the college basketball Final Four.

The next question becomes is he talking about the men or the women?  It's a nice dilemma to have.  It probably felt especially nice with the Jacks dancing when Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell is standing there feeling more blue than the Wildcats who cannot defend their title.  Go Big, Go Blue (not Kentucky blue), Go Jacks.  Although with Louisville as the overall top seed, McConnell does have a dog in the hunt.
