The political action committee America Rising took that concept and applied it to an attack ad on Iowa Democrat Rep. Bruce Braley whose remarks earlier this week before a group of trial lawyers in Texas about Iowa farmers hit a nerve:

If you help me win this race you may have someone with your background, your experience, your voice, someone who’s been literally fighting tort reform for thirty years, in a visible or public way, on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Or, you might have a farmer from Iowa who never went to law school, never practiced law, serving as the next chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee."

America Rising created a video based on that Paul Harvey farmer tribute, "God Made a Trial Lawyer":

In another add he mispelled detasseling and baling. Not a good idea to insult farmers in iowa.

Braley wouldn't know a tassel from a buggy whip.

Check out today's editorial in the Albia (Iowa) Newspaper.
The editor calls Braley a “...condescending, elitist turd.”

Probably the only tassel Braley ever heard of was on a Bourbon Street stripper.

Shouldn’t that read “So Satan made a trial lawyer”?

The editor's exact words.
Looks as if he won't be on Braley’s Christmas card list...

Best part: he's an ambulance chaser.

Hey, what does the guy who finished last in his class at law school do when he graduates?

Braley's job.

not bad, but it could have been a lot more brutal. At least our side is fighting, even if still pulling some punches.

“The man who wants to represent all Iowans as its next U.S. Senator, Democrat Bruce Braley, has just proven himself to be a condescending, elitist turd. It was no coincidence at all that a YouTube video of Braley milking money from big-money Texas trial lawyers appeared on Ag Day, Tuesday, March 25.”

Brilliant!

A link to Paul Harvey's original .... So God Made A Farmer ... is very appropriate for the thread.

Not good to insult farmers anywhere.
If you can get hold of it read THE LAST FARMER
Good history of farming in Midwest from one who left the farm became editor of Rolling Stone and eventually regained faith and roots

I’ve loaned a dozen copies and never get them back cause the reader shares them

Anyone with agriculture in their roots should read it

Author Howard Cohn ( not sure if that’s the correct last name or spelling)

Looks like they finally have it back in print. I buy several used for same price and then share with farm families

I knew you would go there.

Please explain why you equate FR, which uses an informal communication style, and political advertising which is a formal communication style.

So do you prefer the bullet, gas, or the ovens?
