Joni Ernst “as good looking as Taylor Swift” says Tom Harkin

Joni Ernst “as good looking as Taylor Swift” says Tom Harkin

Shake it off, Joni, shake it off

Outgoing Democratic Iowa Senator Harkin made some shall we say, “interesting” remarks about Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst.

“Joni Ernst, she’s really attractive and she sounds nice. I don’t care if she’s as good looking as Taylor Swift or as nice as Mr. Rodgers, but if she votes like Michelle Bachmann, she’s wrong for the state of Iowa.”

Ernst was not impressed by Harkin’s apparent crush on her saying, “I was very offended that Senator Harking would say that. I think it’s unfortunate that he and many in their party believe that you can’t be a real woman if you’re Conservative and you’re female. Again, I am greatly offended about that.”

Was the late disclosure of the Harkin comments a dirty trick?

Too bad, Harkin is front and center in Bruce Braley’s final messaging:


Perhaps Taylor Swift has something to say about it:

Ernst is currently polling ahead of Democratic challenger, Bruce Braley by just over a point, according to the Real Clear Politics average.

She is an attractive lady but I’m not sure she is “Taylor Swift” attractive… not that means anything when it comes to how she would govern…

    Your aren’t Dino Dung Harkin, either.

    Plus, she DOES know her way around pigs. THAT could be like bathing in Prince Itch My Belly to an old Iowa pol…

And Bruce Braley isn’t attractive?

“Was the late disclosure of the Harkin comments a dirty trick?”
I sure hope so! It would mean that maybe, just maybe, conservatives are learning how to win.

    This lady has bigger cojones than any man in Washington.

    Tomorrow morning I will rise, shower, style my hair, apply full makeup, dress to the nines and go to the polls to proudly cast my first vote FOR a candidate (and not against his opponent) in thirty years…Joni Ernst, the next senator from the great state of Iowa.

    Iowans owe the nation for shoving Barry down its throat. It looks like we may get it right this time.

Oh, Tommy, you’re no dog yerself, there, big guy.

Drudge followed the “Ernst is too good looking” gaffe by noting right below that Michelle Nunn is losing ground in Georgia. The contrast was surely not a mistake.

Ernst is currently polling ahead of Democratic challenger, Bruce Braley by just over a point, according to the Real Clear Politics average.

Looks like it’s actually 7 points. (I saw this on Drudge over the weekend, too.)

Am I the only one who thinks she should not have responded head on? Why couldn’t she just say something like, I just talked to Taylor and she said she’s flattered to be compared to me?

Oh that’s right – Joni’s campaign is being run by former Romney 2012 campaign peeps. Only a thimbleful of imagination was sprinkled over all of them.

Excited to see @taylorswift13 in Des Moines on October 8th next year on her #1989Tour.
