ProPublica: And You Thought It Was Just ‘Pink’ Slime.

And, I understand there is some question about spinal tissue in ‘pink slime’, too.

In Iowa we currently have a Republican Governor (Terry Branstad) who is publicly performing ‘outrage’ to the hilt over the ‘smear campaign’ (Ha! what an image!) against ‘Lean Finely Textured Beef.’  Multiple adjacent-state Governors including Branstad are appearing together in public ranting and raving about it, but Branstad acts like a mad dog compared to the others. 

Online, you can watch what I regard as the best program on Iowa Public T.V., to see this for yourself: http://www.iptv.org/mtom/

The episode of Friday April 6th is particularly interesting, and not just for the beef story.  The episode of Friday March 30th also shows the Governors in action, on-site at the manufacturer’s plant.     

Branstad has also drastically reduced State staff for agencies that serve the vulnerables in Iowa, including the aged and the unemployed.
