The news: Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said “tit” on national television earlier today.

(Also, he admitted to enjoying government subsidies as a farmer for decades while calling government subsidies for health care “socialism.” But, c’mon: “tit”!!)

The transcript of Grassley talking farm subsidies with a caller on C-SPAN’s Washington Journal today (h/t ThinkProgress):

GRASSLEY: For the first 16 years I made $3,000 every other year as a state legislator. Now do you expect me to live on $3,000 every other year? No I was a factory worker for 10 years and I was a farmer for that period of time and I farm with my son now. So if you’re trying to make a case that I’ve lived off the public tit all these years, I think you’re saying correctly in the years I’ve been in the Congress but not the years before I came to Congress.
