Had any GOPer said anything like this it would be front page in your face news with the candidate headed for the trash bin of any career. After all, it is only the GOP that are the knuckle draggers who would force women into having babies and are a threat to the continuation of the specie. So when Harkin, the “old white man” said this, I had to pass it along.
Outgoing Democratic Senator Tom Harkin apparently has a theory about why she is doing so well as the campaign reaches its conclusion–she is attractive–and he had a warning for the voters of Iowa.
Here is what he had to say:
“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.’”
“Well I gotta to thinking about that. I don’t care if she’s as good looking as Taylor Swift or as nice as Mr. Rogers, but if she votes like Michele Bachmann, she’s wrong for the state of Iowa.”
