Radio Iowa: Gronstal as grammar policeman

Excerpted from this post at Radio Iowa

The Iowa Senate debated state education policy this evening for nearly
four hours. The grammar police in the crowd cringed when Senator Brad
Zaun, a Republican from Urbandale, declared his disgust with how the
debate "had went." Later, Mike Gronstal of Council Bluffs, the leader
of Democrats in the Senate, offered this critique of Zaun's speech.
"I've heard people tonight talk about what standards should be in the
core curriculum and I've heard the English language murdered on the
floor of the Senate here. 'What we done was'" Gronstal said, repeating
one of Zaun's mistakes. "What kind of language is that?"
