Iowa is full of farmers and Braley just said this to a group of supporters: "Put this in stark contrast, if you help me win this race, you may have someone with your background, your experience, your voice, some who has literally been fighting TORT reform for thirty years in a visible and 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. Because if Democrats lose the majority, Chuck Grassley will be the next chair of the Judiciary Committee."
Since the Eisenhower administration, the United States generally has done food aid in a certain way: grow and pack it in America, ship it across the world on American-flagged ships, then deliver it through American charities, which sell a portion of the food to fund their other programs.
Thanks to radio broadcast legend Paul Harvey's down-to-earth sense of America's heartland, Super Bowl viewers experienced an emotionally charged reminder of the values that made America what it is. The Dodge ad that honored the farmer proved to be one of the best commercials of the day.
