From TPM:

At a Senate debate yesterday in Iowa, GOP candidate Chris Reed accused Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) of having an "Anti-American policy," and of having "an eight-year history of becoming the Tokyo Rose of al Qaida and Middle East terrorism." Harkin, who is a safe bet to win re-election, told Reed after the debate: "You're a nice young man and I thought you had a political future ahead of you, but that just ended your political career right there."

And, in other news of anti-Americanism:

A new University of Minnesota poll gives Democratic candidate El Tinklenberg a 45%-43% lead over Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), whose once-safe re-election bid has been seriously complicated by her McCarthyesque comments on Hardball. This corroborates last night's SurveyUSA poll, which put Tinklenberg ahead 47%-44%. The margin of error on the new poll is ±4.7%

Note: The above blockquote was grabbed from the home page of TPM Elections Central. They appear to have modified the page while I was in the middle of composing this, rewriting the above (which was originally in their round-up post) into a separate post.

This is understandable. It's good and important news. Go visit Elwyn Tinklenberg. Bachmann must go.
