After spending time pretending to be a doctor in order to score cheap political points, the gargantuan governor of the garden state did what he has been doing ever since getting elected governor of New Jersey: waste New Jersey tax payer money spending time in Iowa to secure his spot in the 2016 GOP clown car (or SUV in his case).
Christie, realizing he’ll need the miserably uninformed ammosexuals and homophobic morons that make up the tea party, has increasingly shifted towards the right on key economic and social issues. So perhaps that explains why he was out in full force in support of pretend human being and captain of the tea party morons, U.S. Republican Rep. Steve King (he’s scarier than the author). It was here where Christie confirmed that he should’ve had his mouth stapled, not his stomach. Christie appeared with King at the rural Hole In The Wall (no, that’s what it’s called) lodge for a private fundraiser.
“One of the things that Steve and I share is the absolute commitment to speaking our minds. That would be a good thing, no matter what office you are running for,” said Christie, who acknowledged he is considering a 2016 run for the presidency. (SiouxCityJournal)
So How Does Rep King Actually Think?
Here are five of the most ignorant things that Steve King has said, courtesy of Iowa WatchDog. And in the time it took to write that sentence, he just said many more.
“We could also electrify this wire (on the border) with the kind of current that would not kill somebody, but it would simply be a discouragement for them to be fooling around with it. We do that with livestock all the time.”
Regarding Todd Akin‘s quote that the vagina is a magical portal that has the ability to prevent pregnancy in cases of incest or statutory rape, King told a reporter he’s never heard of a child getting pregnant from statutory rape or incest. “Well, I just haven’t heard of that being a circumstance that’s been brought to me in any personal way.”
“Harry Reid can defend those ghoulish and ghastly and gruesome practices that Planned Parenthood is advocating along with child prostitution and illegal immigration. He can play defense on that.”
King comparing immigration laws to picking a dog: “You put out a beacon like the Statue of Liberty and who comes here? The most vigorous from every country that has donated legal immigrants to America. The cream of the crop. We’ve always had bird dogs around our place. In our family there’s a black lab and white lab, a yellow lab, and my brother has a chocolate lab. Well, you go in and you look at a litter of pups, and you watch them. You watch how they play — they run around a little bit — and what do you want? You want a good bird dog, and you want one that’s gonna be aggressive? Pick the one that’s the friskiest, the one that’s in games the most — not the one that’s over there sleeping in the corner. You want a pet to sit on the couch, pick the one that’s sleeping in the corner. That’s — so, you get the pick of the litter, you got yourself a pretty good bird dog. We got the pick of every donor civilization on the planet because it’s hard to get here; you had to be inspired to come. We got the vigor from the planet to come to America. Whichever generation it was, and then we taught our children that same thing.”
And, finally, King on the United States’ official language, “One of the great things about America is we’ve been unified by a common language. That common language, of course, is English. Our language is getting subdivided by some forces of the federal government. It is time to speak with a common voice. The argument that diversity is our strength has really never been backed up by logic. It’s unity is where our strength is. Our Founding Fathers understood that. Modern-day multiculturalists are defying that.”
You sure this is the guy who thinks like you, Christie?
Christie, who most certainly is a screaming heap of uncaring greed and corruption, is by no means a right-wing nut job (or at least not publicly). So even if he intends to let his 2016 presidential ambitions known early net year, everyone with more than two brain cells already knows he is running and has been for quite some time.
