I took the family to the Iowa State Fair today and went to the Iowa Pork tent to get a tenderloin, when lo and behold, Tom Harkin was in there pouring tea glasses for the folks. I told my wife to get pictures of me standing with him. She didn't understand why and I told her I would tell her later.

Senator Harkin had two interns there running interference for him one of which saw I wanted a picture with Harkin and asked me my name and where I was from. Tom Harkin talked to me, quite a pleasent conversation and as my wife put the camera away, THEN the other female intern saw what was going on and glared the look of death at me...


I was wearing my TEAM AR15.COM hat I just got last week!!!

It doesn't show up too well in the picture, I was kind of disapointed.

In case you are wondering who Tom Harkin is, he is one of the most anti Gun senators in the Senate.

LOL - patsue, you are the new Michael Moore for our side (and I mean that in a complementary way)!

Here we see Tom Harkin, enthralling a voter with his infinite wisdom, all the while oblivious to the fact that said voter would rather cut off his left testicle than vote for this foul piece of flatulence!

Next time, bring a video camera, and be sure to ask him for some cool war stories about that torturous tour of Viet Nam he claims to have served...

You should have stuffed some Iowa pork in his pooper and posted the pics here.

Pull the hat lower on your forehead next time right as you start talking so it shows up better in the pics.

Harken...........?.........Isn't he some kind of Vietnam Warrior fighter Pilot Poser?...Kind of like a kommiekerry?You should have asked him about his combat tours in Nam.Typical dummykrap...."I will never be found out war hero."

That picture looks like you are saying to yourself "get your dirty mitt off my shoulder!"

Harkin is also a liar. He keeps claiming he was a fighter pilot in Vietnam, and he wasn't there.

I half expected to see you throwing the "Shocker"....

"Senator, not counting the seagulls you sucked in over Guam, how many kills did you get over Southeast Asia?"

What, no "crossed" fingers....

A number of years ago I had to pick Tom Harkin up from the airport. He was coming to town for some Cogressional Ag meeting. I won't get into the details as to how I ended up in this position other than to say that I know one of the 'others' involved in the meeting who asked me if I could pick Harkin up. Seems that there wasn't anyone else that was free at the time to do it (again, I won't get into detail).

So here I was headed up I-95 with one of the devil's minion in my car, carrying on a polite conversation (he really wasn't very conversive) while trying to contain my complete and utter contempt for the man.

Oh, he's so fortunate that I treat people like him according to my standards of decency, and not his.

True story.
