(Fair.org) – “Meet Joni Ernst, The Republican Senator Responding to Obama’s State of the Union Address,” offered ABC News(1/20/15).  After ABC‘s introduction, you’ll know that she’s “the first woman to ever represent the state in Congress,” who “catapulted to political stardom with an ad about castrating hogs, making ‘Let’s make ’em squeal’ a hallmark of her campaign.” And that she “touted herself as a Harley-riding Sunday school teacher, who also serves as a lieutenant colonel and battalion commander in the Iowa Army National Guard.”

But can we learn a little more about her? Who is Joni Ernst? Well, a CNNreport (1/20/15) promises to explain just that: Turns out “she’s an Iraq war combat vet, and the first woman elected to Congress from Iowa.” And “her castrating hogs campaign ad made her the standout star in the last election.”

That’s still not very much to go on. How about the Christian Science Monitor (1/20/15), which declared her a “Good Choice to Rebut State of the Union”–so it must know something about her, right?
