Let’s get real: Tommy! ain’t a farmer

“I still farm in Elroy, Wisconsin. I’m farming 700 acres– I’ll be on my tractor this week, before Thanksgiving, harvesting corn… I’m still the farmer from Elroy, Wisconsin and I’m proud of it– and the proudest days are when I’m on my tractor, on my farm in Elroy, lookin at my cattle and, uh, cultivating, plowing… and harvesting and if the Democrats say I’m too Washington, I would tell them, walk behind me, get on a tractor behind me, shovel a little manure and you’ll see what Tommy Thompson is all about.”

– Former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson, during an appearance last week on Up Front with Mike Gousha.

Tommy Thompson the farmer? Uh, not so much.
