Iowa GOP Senate Candidate Runs on a Platform of Proud Hog Castration
This is Joni Ernst. She is one of the Tea Party Republicans running for the Iowa Senate seat to replace retiring Democrat Tom Harkin.
She grew up castrating hogs. Judging from the relish with which she tells the tale, it looks like she enjoyed it quite a bit.
This may not seem like the kind of personal detail most folks would brag about, but Ernst is using it. She wants to go to Washington so she can “cut the pork.” Bam. Viral.
Joni Ernst, making castration work. For her.
