Uh oh. Sen. Charles Grassley had a not-so-pleasant experience while traveling in his home state of Iowa today. (By the way: Know what’s on Highway 136 south of Dyersville? Not a lot.)

It sounds like the senator is doing a lot better than the deer. The fact that he didn’t check on the animal, though, didn’t please some tweeters.

Some were a little more heated about it:

Ouch.

Another took a more optimistic view.

And one practical-thinking commenter was upset for a quite different reason:

We’re thinking Monday dinner, as a matter of fact.

UPDATE: Sen. Grassley’s victim has his/her own Twitter page.
