OMG, some Democrats who fight

In Iowa the election season saw the removal of three state Supreme Court judges because they ruled, correctly, that the Equal Protection Clause means, equal protection.

The incoming governor, former Governor for Life, now Governor for Second Life, Terry Branstad has determined that Constitutional interpretation needs to be decided by prejudice referendum leaving it up to which out-of-state group can pump the most money into the State’s business, preferably during a non-Presidential election year.

But one person fortunately stands in the way, and is preventing such an action, and for once it’s a Democrat, Majority Leader Mike Gronstal. And Branstad is having a Gingrich-like snit fit about it:

“Just because you’re a leader in the Legislature doesn’t mean you’re a dictator or you have the right to make unilateral decisions. And I think on an issue of this importance and magnitude a vote should be, certainly the senators should be given an opportunity to vote on it.”

But Gronstal has a response it would be nice to hear from the occasional national Democratic Party Leader:

“Dictators are people that make efforts to take away other people’s right. I’m not going down that road.”

Good for him, now back to our national display of spinelessness.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
