Harkin on God
It's not unusual for elected officials to invoke the name of God when asking for His blessings on the country. What's unusual is for an elected official — in this case Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin — to proclaim that God favors Democrats over Republicans.
"Had a Republican made the same statement, it would be the cause of a media frenzy," writes Inside the Beltway reader G.L. Gunderman of Florence, Ala. "Is there no limit to their offensive behavior?"
The occasion was Saturday's Iowa Democratic Party Jefferson-Jackson Dinner, the guest of honor being former President Bill Clinton. Also on hand was Des Moines Register columnist Marc Hansen, who was intrigued by the woman selling George W. Bush "Out of Office Countdown" calendars for $13 apiece: "It wouldn't be long now, the woman said, 2008 is just around the corner. Tick tock."
But the evening's most unusual line, Mr. Hansen writes, was uttered by Mr. Harkin: "The Democrats are 'fed up and charged up,' was the way Tom Harkin put it when the dinner plates had been cleared away and it was his time to speak. 'Democrats are up and Republicans are down, and that's the way God meant it to be.' "
The Ragister was there in full force, I shouldn't have to read about this embarassment in a D.C. paper.
What is up with Harkin's muppet fetish?
You can never see his hands. I wouldn't be surprised if there isn't an e-mail & IM scandal there.
