Being Senator Charles Grassely

Senator Charles Grassely (R-Iowa) is obviously ill-suited to be a senator. If his call for Wall Street bankers to commit suicide last week was not enough, his disrespectful comment regarding the wife of Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad (D-N.D) lets us know that this guy has a serious problem.

Did he forget where he was? This was a congressional hearing and not the men's locker room. Perhaps this says something greater about the disrespect of women by some men. It's unfortunate that many are probably in positions of power. I don't know much about Senator Grassely's voting record, but with this kind of heartless and disrespectful language it wouldn't matter much. He would not likely get my vote.
