The midterm elections don't happen until November, but the political ads are already here.  Like Joni Ernst, one of the five people running to become the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Iowa. 

 
She was a Colonel in the Army . . .  a state senator . . . and she used to castrate hogs.

 

We know this, because that's how her latest commercial starts.  Quote, "I'm Joni Ernst, I grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm."  Seriously.

 

 Her point is that she can cut wasteful government spending . . . a.k.a. 'pork'. Well...somebody needs to right?
