Chuck Grassley makes the argument for a continued Republican minority in the Senate:

As Romney speaks notice he is smart enough to do so wo TelePrompTer unlike obama

BTW, if you don't follow @ChuckGrassley you're missing out on wisdom like this:

If I were Romney I wld predict how the economy will take off the very nxt day aftr his election bc he will bring "certainty" to market

But back to the point. Why should this matter? Why should crazy old Chuck make any difference to this election?

Note that if Republicans take the Senate, Grassley would be Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee

Upgrade the Senate bug

How does that sound? Chuck Grassley in charge of the committee that vets the country's Supreme Court nominees? Sends a bit of chill down your spine, huh?

He's really, unintentionally, fun on the tubes, we really don't need to see him chairing judicial nomination hearings.

Makes keeping the Senate an even more compelling idea, doesn't it. And while we're at it, let's upgrade it with these outstanding people.

Please give $3 to all the candidates in our Upgrade the Senate campaign.
