Farewell To The Fairground
MiniCommie got into a battle with FormerlyFunnyCommie Al Franken about which state has the better fair.
Franken found 13 reasons the Minnesota State Fair is the best.
Among them --
Dairy princesses carved in butter...That's creepy on so many levels.
The tradition, including one Minnesotan who's gone for 75 years in a row, even though the fair was canceled for two of those years...I thought Iowans were supposed to be Idiots Out Walking Around.
Fish pond...Are you sure that's not Lake 10,001?
We make history, Teddy Roosevelt said "speak softly and carry a big stick"...He actually used the phrase a year earlier (January,26 1900).
Bruce Braley responded with 18 reasons supporting the Iowa State Fair.
The Butter Cow...People would be less impressed if they realized it's built on an armature made of wood and chicken wire.
Braley went on to praise the Butter Cow's friends and security.
And the scientific community is united in that fact.
In a trip to Sioux City, the CONgressman denied he's a big government liberal.
Report-err Bret Hayworth, in his Policitally Speaking blog for the Sioux City Journal, said Braley's message will include appeals to Democrats, along with noting that he worked across the aisle to have bills enacted into law when Democrats were a minority in the House, meaning that the measures passed due to some Republican support.
But Bret, Democrats are still in the minority in the House.
