Iowa’s Shame Part Infinity

Congress’ most inveterate racist (okay, may be a tie) is not just aware he’s a malevolent force – no, Steve King revels in it.

King drew significant attention Tuesday for remarks he made to Newsmax about Dreamers, young undocumented immigrants who entered the U.S. as children. The ardent opponent of comprehensive immigration reform said many Dreamers “weigh 130 pounds and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert.”

This caused great consternation amongst the GOP leadership who cannot abide such thoughts…at least when they are expressed so overtly.

But when it comes to stupid, no one among is too much stupid for Iowa’s Shame.

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) defended his shocking accusations that young, undocumented immigrants in America — commonly referred to as Dreamers — are actively engaged in the drug trade.

What’s the objective truth on generic melons, Steve?

Over Easy



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 .
