Hawkeye Review: Still rubbing my eyes...
Excerpted from this post at Hawkeye Review
Years ago, had you approached me in the midst of the Culver/Nussle campaign and predicted a Culver victory... to be followed a few years later with a Harkin steak fry featuring guest speaker, "Senator Al Franken," I would have called in the men with white jackets to have you restrained! ... Like the title of this post states, I'm still rubbing my eyes in disbelief. However, we're not confronted with a skit from Saturday Night Live. This is political reality we're dealing with and now Iowa's own Senator Tom Harkin is chair of the powerful Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. Over one million voices appeared on the national mall Saturday to protest health care reform and yet the message was somewhat "muzzled" by a main stream media that failed to practice journalism and cover the story of the weekend.
