Iowa’s shame, part infinity

By: Friday August 15, 2014 1:30 am

Oh sure, you have your Michele Bachmanns and Louie Gohmerts, and even, God forbid, next year a fellow Iowan Jodie Ernst; but still, no member of Congress is more proudly ignorant than Steve King…representative of Iowa’s Fourth District.

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.

IA Sen: Steve King’s Path to the Senate Just Got a Lot Easier

By: Thursday February 28, 2013 1:05 pm

Yesterday, Rep. Tom Latham (R) decided that he would not run for the Senate. Latham was widely viewed as one of the Republican Party’s best hopes for winning the seat in the general election and would have given King a very tough primary fight for the party’s nomination.

The news got even better for King today when Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds (R), another potential top-tier candidate, announced that she would not challenge King in the primary. Reynolds will only run if King decides not to.

So outrageous you cannot criticise him for it

By: Wednesday September 26, 2012 1:30 am

Rep. Steve King: The Government Is Oppressing Me With Speed Limits That Waste ‘Lifetimes’

By: Saturday September 22, 2012 7:40 am

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) has uttered so many stupid things that it’s hard to document all of them. At some point his buffoonery raises the question of the sanity of the voters in his district for sending someone so untethered to represent them.

Why Todd Akin Stayed, and Why it Troubles Paul Ryan

By: Wednesday August 22, 2012 7:25 am

It’s not because Akin might lose to McCaskill, costing the GOP control of the Senate. It’s not because the focus on Akin might derail the careful planning for next week’s Republican National Convention. It’s not because the focus on Akin might spill over into the presidential race, forcing Romney and Ryan to talk more about social issues than the deficit, the budget, and the economy, and perhaps costing them the White House. It’s because Akin chose what Ryan did not.
