    that Tom Harkin currently holds, got in some trouble by pointing out, if the Republicans take control of the Senate, the next chair of the Judiciary Committee would likely be, “a farmer from Iowa who never went to law school.” (i.e. Grassley). Some in Iowa took that as an insult to Iowa farmers. I think it's a very important reason to make sure that Democrats retain control of the Senate. Grassley as chair of Judiciary is a scary thought indeed.

    •  So is the thought of Jim Inhofe (1+ / 0-)

      as chair of the Environment Committee.

      Or McConnell as Majority Leader.
