Iowa gov: Leave 'pink slime' alone!

Terry Branstad, the governor of Iowa, is out to get the people who have demonized "pink slime," the gross looking mix of meat product that made headlines in early March after the government purchased 7 million pounds of it to serve in school lunches.

At the governor's news conference yesterday he suggested Congress launch an investigation into opponents of pink slime:

"It's clear this is a safe product," Branstad said. "It's a lean product, it helps reduce obesity and there is a spurious attack being levied against it by some groups. You can suspect who they might be. They are people who do not like meat."

Or maybe they're just people who don't like "meat" that looks like it can be used to seal window cracks.
