When Rick Perry was in Iowa and said he’ll secure the border if the feds don’t

Texas Governor Rick Perry says he’s considering the “option” of sending Texas National Guard troops to secure his state’s southern border. Perry made his comments today during a lunch in the Clear Lake, Iowa VFW with 17 veterans and members of local law enforcement agencies.

“I think we’ve sent the message that if we don’t get the satisfaction that the federal government’s going to move and move quickly, then the State of Texas will, in fact, fill that void and address this issue,” Perry said.

When the Marist Poll showed Braley and Ernst all tied up

Republican Joni Ernst and Democrat Bruce Braley have equal support among registered voters in Iowa - 43 percent to 43 percent, an NBC News/Marist poll released this morning shows.

The poll tested Iowans who are registered to vote, and included those who aren’t necessarily committed to showing up at the polls in November. About a third say they are unsure about their opinion of the two candidates or have never heard of Ernst or Braley, who are competing for the U.S. Senate seat that Tom Harkin will leave open upon his retirement this winter.

When Bruce Braley threatened legal action over (wait for it…) hens

Rep. Braley, D-Waterloo, the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate, has ruffled feathers by launching a contentious legal battle involving a neighbor and her four therapeutic hens. After comparing his Republican opponent, state Sen. Joni Ernst, to a chick in his first attack ad, Braley looks like C Grade poultry after this fracas. His ad, “Peep,” featured a clip of a baby chick along with audio of a chick peeping (severalmediaoutlets noted the sexist nature of the ad, especially in a state that has never sent a woman to Congress).

Braley’s legal problem started this spring when a chicken crossed his property line. Braley’s wife Carolyn attended a May 8 meeting of the Holiday Lake Owner’s Association to complain about the fowl. The dispute escalated, causing the association to incur nearly $1,700 in legal fees after Braley called the association’s attorney with an implied threat of legal action.

“It’s stupid that it went this far. Any reasonable person would have talked to their neighbor in a reasonable fashion instead,” said Bill Nagle, an association board member. “For being brought up on a farm, he sure has lost his rural, farm values.”
