Gronstal as grammar policeman

The Iowa Senate debated state education policy this evening for nearly four hours. 

The grammar police in the crowd cringed when Senator Brad Zaun, a Republican from Urbandale, declared his disgust with how the debate "had went."

Later, Mike Gronstal of Council Bluffs, the leader of Democrats in the Senate, offered this critique of Zaun’s speech. "I’ve heard people tonight talk about what standards should be in the core curriculum and I’ve heard the English language murdered on the floor of the Senate here. ‘What we done was’" Gronstal said, repeating one of Zaun’s mistakes.  "What kind of language is that?"
