Heh: Watch the "God Made a...Trial Lawyer?" Web Ad
Daniel Doherty | Mar 30, 2014

 Katie brought you this head-spinning clip of Rep.  Bruce Braley (D-IA) pleading with fellow trial lawyers in South Texas to chip money into his U.S. Senate campaign. (Evidently he did not know his distasteful pitch was being recorded).

Essentially, he said, if Democrats lose the open Senate seat he is seeking, and therefore lose control of the upper chamber, the results would be disastrous:  Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, a Republican, would chair the Senate Judiciary Committee.  This is a man he went on to derisively describe as “a farmer from Iowa who never went to law school.”

Here's some advice:  If you’re from the Hawkeye State, don’t get caught on camera demeaning farmers.  Doesn’t.  Look.  Good.  As a consequence, the America Rising PAC released this video, playing off Paul Harvey’s famous 1978 “God Made a Farmer” radio broadcast.  For some reason, the “God Made a…Trial Lawyer?” sound bite doesn’t have quite the same ring to it:

The sad part this Buffon was on my Facebook time line for a bit. Until I blocked it saying it was spam...
"Die-hard conservatives thought that if I couldn't get everything I asked for, I should jump off the cliff with the flag flying-go down in flames. No, if I can get 70 or 80 percent of what it is I'm trying to get ... I'll take that and then continue to try to get the rest in the future."

Ronald Reagan

Especially plaintiffs' attorneys.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
