“Steve King” it’s Iowegian for “Dick”

As an Iowan what can I say about Steve King, the inexplicably elected four king papering capitaltimes Republican from the 5th District (Northwest Iowa)?

Well, “I’m sorry” for a start and an “but I don’t live in that part of the state” as an excuse.

In order to stay in Washington, D.C. and vote against a bill he knew would end up passing — just so he could get his mug on TV a few more times using the bill itself to litter it around the capitol building — he blew off a wedding — his son’s wedding.

Now that’s good parenting! Thanks, Dad of the Year. You love your son enough to miss the most important day of his life, so you can be a douchebag. A-W-E-S-O-M-E!

Most telling is the response of his family…

“No one in this family asked me to reconsider.”

I can certainly understand why.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
