The Joni Ernst Watch 10/26/2015

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.

Apparently, Ernst is an expert on the role of biotechnology and GMOs now:

If we fail to embrace biotechnology as a safe, affordable and timely way to bring food production methods to developing and unstable nations, we are ultimately putting our military and our country at greater risk. How can this Administration and your agencies specifically work to help the public better understand biotechnology, so we can better address the national security challenges laid out by DNI?

It’s one thing to breed crops to deliver desirable traits. It is another thing entirely to tinker with the fundamental building blocks of life itself.

Ann Coulter wants Steve King—yes, that Steve King—to run for Speaker of the House. Actually, I like that idea.

Ben Carson is your new leader in the clubhouse.  2016 is turning out to be a total repeat of 2012 where each new week or so brought a new Republican leader. There was a time when Newt Gingrich was leading the polls in 2012. Newt freaking Gingrich!

It does not help the Donald’s cause here in Iowa that he is insulting the fundamental intelligence of the voters:

 “@mygreenhippo #BenCarson is now leading in the #polls in #Iowa. Too much #Monsanto in the #corn creates issues in the brain? #Trump #GOP”

Is it time for Jeb! bounce?

Lincoln Chaffee dropped out of the Democratic nomination process. Lincoln Chaffee? Yep, that is why he dropped out.
