People driving by or flying over Mike Pattavina's farm in Clarinda will see one of the largest and unique political signs in the state. Pattavina plowed a quarter to a half-acre of his soybean field to spell "BERNIE," all free-hand, in support of the Democratic presidential candidate.That's pretty cool. I may spread manure to spell out "CRUZ." That would best express my feelings for Tailgunner Ted. If I did it, I would have to quickly incorporate it, lest somebody mistake me for a supporter of that jackass. One thing is for sure, I'd never be quoted as saying Cruz was honest or working for the working class people because he is neither. In case you haven't noticed I've settled on Cruz to replace Scott Walker as the candidate I most like to hate.
"I've never seen anything like this, so I thought I would do something different," Pattavina said. "I'm a huge supporter of Bernie's."Pattavina said he came up with the idea after people stole his Bernie Sanders yard signs. He said it only took around 20 to 30 minutes to plow through the field with his tractor. This is his first time plowing a design in a field. The "B" in the field is nearly 60 feet tall."Of course, that can't be stolen," Pattavina said.He plans on caucusing for Sanders and he will canvass for him in the winter."I think he's honest and he's working for the working-class people," Pattavina said. "He's sincere. When you go back and look at his past, he hasn't changed."
