Wow: Iowa Democrat Senate Candidate Tells Room Full of Trial Lawyers They Have to Support Him Because He's a Trial Lawyer and You Sure Don't Want No Damn "Farmer from Iowa" Heading Up the Judiciary Committee

This is a major gaffe.

Sometimes things get hyped and blown out of proportion.

Well I don't think I'm overstating on this one. The headline really isn't juiced. The Democrats' candidate for Iowa Senate really says that he's one of You -- and he says this to a room full of trial lawyers, noting he's been "literally" fighting tort reform for 30 years.

He then disparages Chuck Grassley -- who would be the Senate Judiciary Chairman, were Republicans to take the Senate -- for having two fatal flaws:

1, "he never went to law school."

2, he's some "farmer from Iowa."

Note he's not content to just say Grassley is a farmer. (Though it's strange enough that he would disparage that occupation in Iowa, a state with a lot of farmers.)

He calls him a "farmer from Iowa," as if that last little fillip makes it all the worse.

Did I mention he's campaigning to be the Senator from Iowa?

Why this little dig at Iowa? Well, he was speaking to would-be donors from out of state. Specifically, Texas. So when he meets the trial lawyers from Texas, he has all sorts of dire warnings about "farmers from Iowa."

Not sophisticated, you know. They don't have the same "background," "experience," and "voice" that Braley and all his swell Texas Trial Lawyers do.

But now that his statement has been publicized, he wants you to know, he has the utmost respect for those corncob-smokin', cousin-pokin', chicken-chokin' inbred moronic Iowa farm-tards.

I apologize to Senator Grassley and anyone I may have offended," he said. "I respect Senator Grassley and enjoy our working relationship, even though we disagree on some issues.


My parents both grew up on Iowa farms during the Great Depression," Braley said. "It deeply influenced who they are and who I am, and gave me a profound appreciation for what farmers do for the world. One of my grandfathers was a charter member of the Iowa Farm Bureau. I grew up in rural Iowa, doing farm jobs and working a grain elevator.

"I have tremendous respect for Iowa farmers and appreciate how important they are to our state, and Im grateful to have the support of hundreds of farmers across Iowa," he continued.

Yes, he's happy these degenerate cornfolk, these dirty drooling Cob People, have found themselves a gainful trade that doesn't tax their limited capacity for higher thinking.

"Im grateful to have the support of hundreds of farmers across Iowa..."

Yup, hundreds sounds about right. Though that number may fall.
