When it comes to Joni “Make ‘em squeal” Ernst or Steve King it’s clown shoes all day, every day. Recently, the conversation in Iowa has turned away from our homegrown whack-a-doos and focused on the nutcase circus that will be the Republican caucus.
It hurts me to say this, but I have to give some credit to Senator Ernst for her current advocacy for spending on mental health support for veterans. It makes sense given her time in uniform that she would champion veteran’s causes—unlike the predominance of chicken hawks who serve in Congress—and it is refreshing to see someone support the troops once they get home. Thanks Joni.
I thought Bobby Jindal was not considered a viable Republican candidate, but apparently he has different ideas and is moving staff to Iowa. He has got to hope it goes better than his response to the State of the Union in 2009.
Now that Michele Bachmann is former Representative Michele Bachmann it is almost funny to hear her go off about President Obama.
Okay, it’s actually frightening to think that this same person was a member of Congress, maybe not the craziest member if you consider Louie Gohmert, and was polling well in Iowa prior to the 2012 caucus. WTF?
Just because a class of people have it worse in other countries, does not make the way we treat that same class of people any better. Seriously, where do the Republicans find these guys and why do people vote for them?
