Via Charlie Spiering, if listening to Paul Harvey wax lyrical about the wholesome grit of America’s ambulance chasers doesn’t bring a tear to your eye, well, mister, you’re a better man than I. In fact, I like to imagine the sequel to Harvey’s “God made a farmer” speech would involve a farmhand being lightly injured on the job and Bruce Braley suing the farmer into bankruptcy. That’s the kind of man we need in charge of the public till in Washington.
You know about the gaffe heard ’round the political world but what you might not know is that Braley’s not done gaffing yet. A day after apologizing for sneering that Chuck Grassley was a mere “farmer from Iowa who never went to law school,” Team Braley put out a press release celebrating his own experience with farming — which managed to misspell several farming terms. Then they posted a picture of a farm to their Facebook account. The pic turned out to be of a farm in England. We’re maybe a day away from a photo op of this guy driving a tractor while wearing Gucci loafers.
