Chuck Grassley Enters Second Millenium

The years give him perspective. For example, his experience with the 100 year’s war gives him great insight into US policy in Afghanistan – an forever wars, in general. Having lived at a time when women were chattel has helped him navigate the complex legal issues raised during the confirmation hearing for Brett Kavanaugh.

Grassley is not the only millenarian in Congress.

Grassley (left) represented Barons at the signing of the Magna Carta. His bĂȘte noire, Dianne Feinstein (center) also represented the Barons.

Chuck Grassley was present when the Mongols sacked Kyiv in 1241. This gives him a long range perspective on international affairs.

Experience with Mongol hordes strengthened his conviction that a baronial aristocracy was the best form of government. Particularly for Barons and their eldest sons.

Urbanization threw a spanner into the world view.

Grassley’s first campaign poster. Grassley’s anti-abortion message has changed little over the years.

Why vote for a 1,000 year old man? Stability! That’s why.

Note: The poster reads, “Abortion is like a rat gnawing on the head of a live sheep.”
