Why Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley is a See You In Tea

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Tuesday, November 2, 2021

Iowa’s Banana Republican Senator, the 88-year Old Man Charles Grassley, is mad because Joe Biden’s Border Patrol seized his fentanyl.

Bessie Hendricks, who at 114 is Iowa’s oldest resident, and old enough to be Grassley’s mother, isn’t having any of it, and thinks the whippersnapper Grassley needs to “stick it where the sun don’t shine.”

“Chuck must be getting Alzheimer’s,” said the supercentenarian. “There’s no other way to look at it. I mean, why would anyone in their right mind complain about taking deadly, addictive, illegal drugs off the streets? Right?”

The Shady Oaks Care Center resident bemoaned the current state of the GOP saying, “Back in the day, a corn-fed, strapping Iowa farmer would have beat the stuffing out of” him for making such a stupid remark.

“He ought to come here and see me, and I’ll give him a piece of my mind, because he obviously needs some. I don’t know what’s gotten into that man ever since he started fawning on the last President,” she said, referring to Grassley & Trump, respectively.

A recent Des Moines Register poll showed the former President had a 91% approval rating among Iowa Republicans, while only 81% of Iowa Republican voters had favorable opinions of their longtime senator.

However, he endorsed the Senator, and at a Des Moines rally Saturday October 9, where the former President stood alongside him, Grassley said, “I was born at night, but not last night. So if I didn’t accept the endorsement of a person that’s got 91% of the Republican voters in Iowa, I wouldn’t be too smart. I’m smart enough to accept that endorsement.”

Grassley, who is Iowa’s senior senator, and the GOP’s oldest, will be a returning 2022 candidate for the Class III seat, and if re-elected, would be 95 at the end of that term, which concludes in 2028.

The Senator announced his returning candidacy September 24, 2021 via Twitter.

His decision to campaign again was supported by only 28% of Iowans polled in 2021 by the Des Moines Register/Mediacom. In stark contrast, Alabama’s senior senator, Richard Shelby, who is but one year younger than Grassley, is also a Class III Republican Senator, and has publicly stated that he has no intentions of campaigning for re-election.

The Iowa Senator seems to have either exercised poor judgment, or has seriously misplaced confidence in the Social Security Administration’s Actuarial Life Tables, which in 2017, when he was then aged 84, showed males that age living 6.33 years longer.

According to at least one research article as far back as 2012, “Poor decision making is a consequence of cognitive decline among older persons without Alzheimer’s disease or mild cognitive impairment.” And, it is well known that poor judgment is an early sign of dementia, and symptom of Alzheimer’s.

The U.S. Senate website states this about Class III Senators: “Class III terms run from the beginning of the 115th Congress on January 3, 2017, to the end of the 117th Congress on January 3, 2023. Senators in Class III were elected to office in the November 2016 general election, unless they took their seat through appointment or special election.”

Ms. Hendricks didn’t express much satisfaction with Joni Ernst, Iowa’s other U.S. Senator, who is also Republican. “She may know how to castrate hogs, but she hasn’t done anything for Iowans, or for America,” and said that in more ways than one, both are ideological rerun candidates for Iowa’s senate seats, who “wouldn’t know a good idea if it came and kicked them in the head.”

She invited Senator Grassley to come see her next time he’s in Iowa, and said, “I’m located on the west side of Lake City on Highway 175, right next to Stewart Memorial Hospital, and he’s welcome here anytime. But if he can’t stand the heat, he needs to stay out of the kitchen,” characterizing his obsequious comment.
