Joni Ernst Bombs Crucial Soybean Question in What Mayor Pete Calls "Most Midwestern Debate Moment Ever"

Democrat Greenfield nails her answer. Ernst maunders and meanders and falls victim to the passive-agression of the Iowan moderators. But what the heck—you're welcome!

I don’t remember Pete being so bitchy before. He’s always been the cerebral candidate. Intelligent, pragmatic, not relying on cheap shots but on that charming intellect of his which he’s typically used with appropriate but razor-like precision. But lately, he definitely seems to have become more of a piranha, which is to say he’s become more of a typical politician. The biting Fox News appearances where he’s wallowing in the gutters all the rest of them do, the aggressive Twitter rants etc. Just not the guys I became accustomed to.

I liked the consensus-building Pete better. He was a a total role model not just for gay men but for Democrats. It’s like he’s been infected with whatever bitter cunt disease afflicts Amy Klobuchar.

No, R71, that was Arizona’s Martha McSally.*

The cruelty and demeaning way in which McSally retorted to CNN’s Manu Raju, “I’m not speaking to you. You’re a liberal hack!”, was unforgettable.

I observed it live and was as shocked then as I remain today for a Senator to speak to a regarded member of the press who asked a reasonable question in regards to Trump.

Of course, we’ve seen things considerably devolve under the Trump admin, but that does not mean they are forgotten.

McSally has been a Trump toady since she was appointed to fill a position by Governor Doug Ducey. Note she has never been elected by her populace.

*Up for re-election, in a recent debate with her opponent, Mark Kelly, she was asked by a slick moderator of her defense of Trump. She hedged on an acknowledgement of this...... flailing in a similar manner as Joni Ernst and her soybeans——>corn deception.

While the internet has been scrubbed of McSally’s liberal hack comment, the photo below shows the moment it occurred.

To Pete’s credit, I believe he has found his calling. Though not being a fan of his before his Fox appearances, giving credit where credit is due.

If Dems could cultivate bright individuals like Pete who can relate - let’s face it - to Fox World whilst actually, filleting them to the bone, then they could display Fox World for what it is: an imbecilic zombie cult....which has sprung Medusa heads in the Trump Era.

The Pete-Midwesterny-Folksy-Aw-Shucks persona serves him in this setting. Then he brings out his intellectual (and likely corporate donor/DNC) guns to shoot down imbecilic Trumpists.

This is his metier.

According to them, yes, absolutely, Ernst should have known these figures. Apparently in Iowa and many farm counties in the Midwest, there exists daily price reports for major commodities. One Iowan (who is not a farmer) listened to them with his family and stated by age 4 he could quote the daily averages.

This is a big deal for a Senator that purports to represent her populace especially when:

1) Her opponent hits the bullseye.

2) She campaigns on an Iowan-farmer-of-the-people platform.

I grew up in rural Ohio and my first job out of college was the local paper.

We ran livestock prices, corn and soybean prices every day on page two. That's how important it was. Page two. No matter what. If the livestock prices were late and nobody answered the phone at the livestock auction, I would walk over there and get the prices.

Also, when it was "fair season" (our local county fair was pretty famous back in the day), you best believe those show results took up most of the paper. You had to report on who bought the prize winning steer, milk cow, pig and sow. We even reported winning chickens, rabbits, cakes, pies, quilts, vegetables and flowers.

When someone went to the state fair with their animal, we had to report on that, too. I know most of you all think that's dumb and sad but how many of you know what's playing on Broadway or at The Met week to week and who is starring? Quite a few of you. It's important to you OR you see/hear it every day.

When you grow up in farm country, this is the stuff you see, hear and live every day because it's important to the community you live in.

R124, it was the county paper.

Local as in not from the nearby "big city". We ran county news and most of that was farm stuff, obituaries, some politics, 4H news, local HS sports (which were big, too). Back then we also ran court reports which could be quite interesting. Also police, fire and sheriff reports.

It was the newspaper for a rural county, r124. I know that's an odd concept in this day and age but the "big city" paper didn't cover anything our community was interested in like livestock or corn prices.

I’m an Iowa resident and registered Democrat. I was underwhelmed by Greenfield’s debate performance. She seemed underprepared and amateurish. I voted for her because Ernst is a liar and her political ads are lying and misleading. Ernst is always at McConnell’s right hand at any press conference. The race is considered a toss up.

No matter how bad she has looked in the past, she finds a way to look worse.

Is Ernst behind in the polls?

As a former Kansan, I must admit I have enjoyed watching this clip many times now.

I fucking hate these assholes. They try to be so authentic with their rolled up sleeves and shit, bread bags on my shoes-- so WHAT? It's a rural state, she thinks that makes her Laura Ingalls Wilder? It goes to show how out of touch she really is. Who doesn't do shit like that out in the country. No one else feels compelled to write a speech about it.

How about twisting the heads off chickens, or getting shot at by someone in a strange car in the dark walking back from putting the hens to bed. Bags over the shoes is nothing. NOTHING. Bet that bitch doesn't even eat pickled beets, let alone grow and can them. Fucking posers, they're as bad as our fake cowboys down here in Tx.

God, bread bags over the shoes. Cry me a fucking river.

OMG what an insufferable gas bag and cunt.

I want to slap those horse teeth right out of her head.
