Bleeding Heartland: Grassley partisans pack the house

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

The crowd applauded Sen Grassley for merely walking into the room in
Pocahontas today. They were clearly his fans, and they filled a good
part of the Expo Center on the fairgrounds. The very first man railed
against too much government using the mandated EXIT signs above all
the doors as his example. Anybody too stupid to know the way out of
the building would likely not be smart enough read the sign, he said.
This drew another round of applause and laughter. No guns were in
evidence, but I imagine the four sheriff deputies may have had theirs.
I wasn’t close enough to them to notice. One elderly voter who got the
microphone stood right next to the Senator, accused Obama of "acting
like a little Hitler," (more applause) and said he was ready to take
his gun to Washington.
