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.
@ChuckGrassley You didn't make sure?? It could have been suffering! Dick move, Sen. Grassley.

Some were a little more heated about it:
.@ChuckGrassley You and that deer have a lot in common, although apparently it only afflicts YOU from the neck up.

@ChuckGrassley mmm.. Sounds about right from a pro-lifer. " I decide which life is worthy of saving" Mighty Christian of ya, Chuck.

Another took a more optimistic view.
@ChuckGrassley He's just resting.

And one practical-thinking commenter was upset for a quite different reason:
@ChuckGrassley You left it??? Senator, that's DINNER.

We’re thinking Monday dinner, as a matter of fact.
UPDATE: Sen. Grassley’s victim has his/her own Twitter page.
Soon @GrassleyDeer will have a show on the History Channel
