Radio Iowa blog: Apples or pumpkins?
Excerpted from this post at Radio Iowa blog
This might fall into a "they purport, I deride" category, but I can report I am not the only statehouse journalist who saw these two news releases and laughed. Patty Judge, Iowa's current Secretary of Agriculture and the Democratic Party's 2006 nominee for Lieutenant Governor, issued a news release on October 2 with a headline that blared: Iowa Ag Secretary Patty Judge Reminds Iowans October is 'Apple Month' ... This was immediately followed the next day by another "reminder" from Judge: Iowa Ag Secretary Patty Judge Reminds Iowans That Autumn is Always 'Pumpkin Season' ... Gird yourselves. November will probably be gourd month. December is definitely going to be Christmas Tree month. What will January be -- ice sculpture month? Will February be snow ball month? The mind boggles. But perhaps we now know what role Secretary Judge might serve in a Culver Administration – the "reminder."
