Iowa Senate candidate Bruce Braley has had a tough week after a conservative Super PAC released a video of him mocking GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley as a farmer who has “never been to law school,” and it is only getting worse.

The Des Moines Register reported Thursday that a press release the Democratic congressman issued to tout his history of fighting for farmers misspells the terms detasseling and baling.

“Bruce grew up in rural Iowa and worked on Iowa farms, detassling (sic) corn and bailing(sic) hay,” it reads.

After the typos were pointed out, Braley spokesman Jeff Giertz said on Twitter he lost his fourth-grade spelling bee by misspelling “journey.”

“I guess my old habits are hard to break,” he said.

Additionally, it was reported on Thursday that a photo of an Iowa farm Braley posted to his Facebook page in 2013 is actually a photo of a farm in England.

Braley spokesman Drew Pusateri said the photo is being corrected, and it has been taken down.

Braley has been under fire for his leaked comments, which were seen as mocking farms and farmers as he campaigns in a state known for its agriculture industry. In a statement after the video surfaced, Braley said he wanted to apologize to Grassley and anyone his statements may have offended.

“I have tremendous respect for Iowa farmers and appreciate how important they are to our state, and I’m grateful to have the support of hundreds of farmers across Iowa,” he said.

You people get so mixed up sometimes. But then again you have Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi on your side. No wonder.
Sure Carol, like the Puritans who wanted this freedom for themselves but persecuted anyone who had different beliefs from theirs. Something that some right wing religious groups still want to do by inserting their narrow views into law. Here's what the Supreme Court stated in the case of Everson v Board of Education;
“The establishment of religion clause means at least this: Neither a state nor the federal government may set up a church. Neither can pass laws that aid one religion, aid all religions, or prefer one religion over another. Neither can force a person to go to or to remain away from church against his will or force him to profess a belief or disbelief in any religion…. Neither a state or the federal government may, openly or secretly, participate in the affairs of any religious organizations or groups and vice versa. In the words of Jefferson, the clause against establishment of religion by law was intended to erect ‘a wall of separation between church and state.’”
No Carol, we're not confused, we use the law as our guide. You're the one who's confused when you think that laws like RFRA allow you to discriminate based on your religious biases.

Sure nutcase, tell me just why you Republicans are so obsessed with repealing Obama care ? History shows you have little if any concern for the poor or the working class, and heavens knows you would never court the Pharmaceutical and Insurance companies. One reason and you lying creeps will never admit..One thing alone..You are terrified that it's going to succeed and once again you greedy idiots on the right will be on the wrong side...Plain and simple..Kinda like you.

Good thing we don't have a Church of the United States.
Which is the point you and your liberal pals keep missing. Our First Amendment gives us the right to exercise and express ANY religion. The phrase "separation of church and state" mentioned by Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptists is to ensure the separation of the state from establishing a religion, i.e. the Church of England.
Wrong again Carol! The purpose of the wall of separation is not primarily to prevent the establishment of a national religion but prevent both the intrusion of government into religious practice and undue influence of religion in our laws or secular institutions like schools. It's a two way street.
In the 1980 Supreme Court ruling in Stone v Graham stated;
"The pre-eminent purpose for posting the Ten Commandments on schoolroom walls is plainly religious in nature. The Ten Commandments is undeniably a sacred text in the Jewish and Christian faiths, and no legislative recitation of a supposedly secular purpose can blind us to that fact."
In 2004 the Dover PA school board made up of right wing religious zealots tried to insert warmed over Creationism rebranded as "Intelligent Design" into school science classes. Several parents brought suit and a federal judge, John E. Jones III, a Bush appointee ruled that this was an unconstitutional insertion of religion into a public school curriculum.

Breaking: NYT

He lied. He knew but said he did not. Now he says he forgot. Bye-bye Christie.

Other interesting new facts emerged, revealed in the report, that are scandalous.

Port Authority told Christie about the closings at Sept. 11 meeting.

The Port Authority official who oversaw the lane closing at the George Washington Bridge said that he had he informed Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey about it at a Sept. 11 memorial while the closings were occurring, according to an internal investigation released on Thursday by lawyers for the governor.
The official, David Wildstein, told Mr. Christie’s press secretary of the Sept 11 conversation at a dinner in December just before his resignation from the Port Authority, according to the report.

The report said that Mr. Christie did not recall any such conversation and finds no evidence that he was involved in the scheme, which snarled traffic for thousands of commuters in Fort Lee, N.J., from Sept. 9 through the morning of Sept. 12.

It is said that he got tears in his eyes when he was told in January. I'm sure he was thinking, "there goes my presidency."

UPDATE:

Per the wonderful Steve Kornaki, on msnbc, just now: "This is Christie's defense." It is written by his lawyer and,as Kornaki reasons, presents the case the defense attorneys would make in any legal proceedings. It should not be seen as an objective report.

Christie's legal team plays down the conversation where Wildstein says that he talked directly to Christie about it because they claim it was not presented as retribution but as something routine.

None of the directly implicated people talked to them.

This is the story of MSNBC in a nutshell: It rose to prominence on its criticism of George W. Bush, peaked during Barack Obama’s historic 2008 campaign, and, by criticizing Republicans and championing liberal causes, sustained its viewership in the years that followed.

Until now.

MSNBC suffered harder loses in 2013 — in terms of both viewership and revenue — than either of its competitors at Fox News and CNN, according to Nielsen data featured in a new Pew Research report. Prime-time viewership declined by a staggering 24 percent (nearly twice the loss sustained by CNN and four-times that sustained by Fox News). Daytime viewership fell by 15 percent, even as it rose at both of the other networks.

On the revenue side, MSNBC was projected to decline by 2 percent, while both CNN and Fox News were projected to experience growth of 2 percent and 5 percent, respectively. MSNBC was expected to bring in $475 million in revenue: less than half what CNN will make and roughly one-quarter of what Fox News will make.
