GOP Field of Dreams in Iowa
Yeah, this Steve King. His award category and winning streak:
- Bullshit Award Winner = 1
- Bigot/Racist Award Winner = 3
- Joseph Goebbels Truth Teller Award Winner = 1
- Lunatic Award Winner = 1
MoronAward Winner = 1
- Rodney Dangerfield Award Winner = 1
- Screwball Award Winner = 1
The icing on his proverbial cake is this gem:
King is one of the most prominent opponents of immigration in the House. He always expresses this position with wonderfully colorful language. In a recent interview with the conservative site Newsmax, King said sure, “Some kids who would be able to stay in America under the DREAM Act are upstanding citizens brought into the country by their parents — but just not enough to make the law worth it.” He went on to say, “Some of them are valedictorians, and their parents brought them in. But, for everyone who's a valedictorian, there's another 100 out there that weigh 130 pounds and they have calves the size of cantaloupes because they're hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert."
King said his opposition to immigration “doesn't mean that there aren't groups of people in this country that I have sympathy for, but the law would legalize both the valedictorians and the weed-lifters,” or as King referred to them later in the interview, those who are “undermining our culture and civilization.”
Undermining – Um, I wonder if he even knows what that word means? Doubtful to say the least.
The bigger issue is of course is how can any prospective GOP candidate pander to this man, this insect of a human being, really? This is not a rhetorical question,either.
