With his retirement, the Ragister has moved from continually sucking up to CommieTommie Harkin,  to now paying tribute to him (and anointing his successor, Bruce Braley).

The Ragister refers to Harkin as Iconic.

Heavy emphasis on the CON as well as the ICK and the scientific community is united in that fact.

CommieTommie is also called underdog-friendly and a champion of the down-and-out.

The latest from this chump-ion is an effort to increase the minimum wage, over three years, to $10.10 an hour — nearly three dollars more than the current rate of $7.25.

That's even higher than his own President wants, as Obama has proposed $9 an hour.

The President's former head the Council of Economic Advisers, Christina Romer, made chump change of those advocates when she questioned the need for a minimum wage at all, noting that "robust competition is a powerful force helping to ensure that workers are paid" decent wages.

Romer noted, It's an obvious point that our economically illiterate leaders can't seem to fathom.

Which is quite apropos, as these two would not have gotten elected/re-elected without an illiterate electorate.
