Steve King May Have Lost His Mind

Rep. Steve King is feeling the heat after making comments so racist that even his fellow Republicans are criticizing him. Saying that the vast majority of Mexican immigrants in this country are drug runners and that you can tell this just by looking at them, he took to the House floor to defend himself. And gave a bizarre, rambling speech comparing himself to Jesus and claiming that his free speech rights are being violated.

    There is no evidence that he ever had a mind to lose.

    His mind is a terrible thing to taste.

    What do you suppose is the percentage of people in the United States that believe, Freedom of Speech means we are protected from criticism? Seems to me that there are far too many of them.

    About the same percentage who believe that they are being persecuted if they are not allowed to freely indulge in religiously mandated bigotry.

    That locks in the Arizona, Texas and probably a few other red states for his presidential run.

    “Saying that the vast majority of Mexican immigrants in this country are drug runners and that you can tell this just by looking at them…”

    He didn’t say that. He said that the MexiValedictorian to HispanoSmuggler ratio greatly favors the latter, and that they’ve got legs like fruit. From this simple and uncontroversial statement (we all know that the “Mexican fruit legs” is a stereotype because it’s true) I can only conclude that he wants to improve our public school system, and perhaps increase recruiting among LatinoSchoolers for football kickers and marathon runners.

    His mind isn’t really all that interesting.

    What I want to know is when will he lose his office?

    It’s there to protect him from aspersions against his asparagus.

    There was a time saying something like this would have torched a politician’s career. Nowadays, it just means he won’t face a serious primary challenge

    Sure. This time. Let another election or two pass and he’ll be considered a RINO.
     
    In any event, we need more like him, if only to distract us from Anthony Weiner’s telegenic penis. It’s like the Travelocity Gnome, if the Gnome stayed at home and sent pictures of itself to people over the internet.

    It was the style at the time.

    Why does this make me think of Orson Scott Card’s appeal for people to tolerate his bigotry?

    Not hardly. Frankenberger, Stalin, Pol Pot, Mao, etc.

    @17: Why do you always refer to Hitler as “Frankbenberger?”

    @18: Strike that, meant “Frankenberger.”

    Mark Twain: “Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress; but I repeat myself.”

    The theory was that the people would select the best of the field of candidates. So why does almost every election turn into a race to the bottom?

    About two-thirds of the way through the vid, he seems to insinuate that ‘Judeo-Christian Values’ led to the Age of Reason.

    With all the spinning Galileo must have already done in his grave by now, does anyone know if he has dug through to the other side of the planet, yet?

    I repeat, in pure terms and removed from issues of intelligence, competence, history and fortune, Steve King is the worst human being who has ever lived.

    Steve King has made millions of people grateful for his being from Iowa; those millions of people are the ones who are not Iowa voters. King may be a son-of-a-bitch, but at least he’s not MY son-of-a-bitch.

    That first video; I only got 2 and a 1/2 minutes into it. There was no point. It was just one big excercise in Proof by Verbosity and Appeal to History.

    And then in the second one, he has the gall to say that statements should be judged by their contents. As if his is not being judged by it’s filthy, racist contents.
