Hey, how do you refer to a state Senator and National Guard war veteran who served in Iraq? Well, if you’re retiring Senator Tom Harkin, you apparently ignore those parts of the resume and zoom in on physical details:
Retiring Democratic Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin says that Iowa voters shouldn’t be fooled because Joni Ernst is “really attractive” and “sounds nice.”
“In this Senate race, I’ve been watching some of these ads,” Harkin said at the Story County Democrats’ annual fall barbecue last week honoring the retiring senator. “And there’s sort of this sense that, ‘Well, I hear so much about Joni Ernst. She is really attractive, and she sounds nice.’”
…Course, when your party is running the trial lawyer who goes around insulting the next Senate Judiciary chair and suing people over chickens, I suppose that you don’t have much to work with there. Still. Don’t these people pay attention to their own agitprop? …Pathetic, really.
