Oh, and Braley was only getting started with his farmer comments. His week went downhill from there.
A day after apologizing for sneering that Chuck Grassley was a mere “farmer from Iowa who never went to law school,” Team Braley put out a press release celebrating his own experience with farming — which managed to misspell several farming terms. Then they posted a picture of a farm to their Facebook account. The pic turned out to be of a farm in England. We’re maybe a day away from a photo op of this guy driving a tractor while wearing Gucci loafers.
