Listen to the 2010 Harkin Steak Fry

The 2010 Harkin Steak Fry — the 33rd annual — is history.  I wrote four blog posts from the afternoon, in this order:  one about the news conference before; two  about the first half of the program; and three about the last half of the program.

Here’s Radio Iowa’s story about the event, plus a story solely focused on Harkin’s half hour speech.  There were two quotes about rented mules during the afternoon and a reference to the “uber” rich.   Time Magazine’s Mark Halperin posted a photo gallery, then a columnThe Des Moines Register’s Jason Clayworth posted this.  Kathie Obradovich of The Register blogged this.  Jeff Zeleny of The New York Times posted this.

Here are the speeches, if you’d like to listen:

David Plouffe, Obama’s 2008 campaign manager, and White House Senior Advisor David Axelrod: PlouffeAxelrodFry

Senator Tom Harkin: Harkin2010Fry

Governor Chet Culver & Lieutenant Governor Patty Judge: CulverJudge2010Fry
