Grassley on live TV RIGHT NOW! 10-19-05 6:40 PM
He is currently on Mediacom connections channel and they are asking people to call in.1-800-736-8255. I guess it is also being shown on his website. I believe it is www.grassley.senate.gov . He's talking about tax policies at this moment. Also taking email questions. If there are any Iowa people reading this, lets call and/or email him about something. Maybe why he supported the IWR or something.

1. Doh!
I missed it. I would have loved to call in, or at least see him in action.

Was anything interesting discussed?

6. A couple of things which interest me were.
The pullout of troops from Iraq was discussed, and Grassley talked a lot, but didn't say anything. Another subject which was discussed was alternate energy. This is Iowa, after all, and we are still an agricultural economy, so ethanol was endorsed by Grassley. He stopped short of endorsing E85 or bio-diesel though. I didn't call, but I got the impression that "dissidents" were not going to be tolerated. The host was sort of a butt smoocher, or at least it seemed like it. Can't remember his name at the moment.

4. Grassley -- get it? Grass--Lee
Edited on Thu Oct-20-05 03:12 PM by CornField
You would have thought that ad campaign would have really been a slap in the face to Iowans, but NOOOOOOOO

Iowans want to vote for a guy who mows his own grass, even tho he doesn't *have to*. That's what was missing from Art Small -- he should have sent out a press release of him mowing his own grass because he can't afford to have someone else mow it.

ETA: Sorry about the thread hijack. I find myself getting more and more passionate about how ignorant the Iowa electorate seems to be.

5. Hey we stink right now
the democratic message is what?
Our message can and should be the culture of corruption in washington and the huge budget deficits for sure but we need something to be positive about. We can't solely be.... we aren't bush and the republicans! I am not saying that won't work but we need something else in the mix to be viable. I wish I knew how we should do it.

7. Nah he wasn't mowing
Just spreading fertilizer, of a sort. He talked about farming, so I'm sure he knows about bullshit.
