The Joni Ernst Watch 11/16/2015

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.

Ben Carson is a liar. Remember, this is a candidate who has put everything on how credible he is as a person.

NOTE: There will be no post on Monday November 23rd because I will be on vacation in Colorado hopefully avoiding any mention of Republicans running for President. Good luck, right?
