Why the fark do people keep electing this moron? He's a statewide official who's been embarrassing Iowa for almost a decade. Iowa isn't that retarded - WTF guys?

"It would have been awfully hard to fraudulently file the birth notice of Barack Obama being born in Hawaii and get that into our public libraries and that microfiche they keep of all the newspapers published. That doesn't mean there aren't some other explanations on how they might've announced that by telegram from Kenya."

Sure, there's other explanations:

1. Time travel

2. The Ministry of Magic used charmed telegrams that fly across the ocean and insert themselves into newspapers.

3. A vast left-wing conspiracy.

I love that the conspiracy theory has gone beyond "he has a fake history" to "his fake history is so perfect it was crafted since his birth to make him a decades-long Manchurian candidate designed to take down the country."

It's like saying "I'm not saying it's aliens, but that's because the Illuminati did such a great job at covering up the aliens."

Dog whistle fund raising. Bachmann's crazy barrage last month netted her a cool million, now it's King's turn. The silly thing is that they don't really need to do it. King and Bachmann spend as much money defending their safe red districts as most Senators do for state wide contests that are usually much more competitive. It's a weird strategy.

But drilling into that now, even if we could get a definitive answer and even if it turned out that Barack Obama was conclusively not born in America, I don't think we could get that case sold between now and November.

Nope. You just have to ask the question, and never prove anything. Just like every other worthless POS Birfer.

My bad - for some reason I thought he was a Senator. The fact that he's only in the House is actually pretty relieving.

Any your wonderful Republicans in the House have handed him the position of vice-chairman of the House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Immigration Policy and Enforcement.

Perhaps they ought to review their committee assignments.

Look, three years before the Civil Rights Act, a pregnant teenage girl was convinced her half-black son with a bizarre name was going to run for President in the 21st Century, so she engineered a conspiracy that fooled every intelligence agency on the planet, with no training.

Take off your blinders, libdong.

Birthers could be given a drop of Barack Obama's blood today, put in a time machine, taken to the hospital room where he was born in Hawaii, watch him be pushed out of his mother's womb, be given a drop of the baby Barack Obama's blood then, be taken back to today in the time machine, and personally watch a DNA sequencer conclude that they are the same person, and they would STILL believe that he was born in Kenya.
 
2012-08-01 03:03:08 PM  
Obama was being vetted for the white house when he was still a sperm in his Dad's balls. That long ago is when the Dems began to weave their master plot to turn America into a socialist P\;aradise with a black man at the helm. They knew this would whip the GOP into a rabies like frenzy and would begin to tear itself apart.

Also, aren't some cities included in his district now since the redistricting (like Ames and maybe Des Moines)?

That's likely to change. Thanks to Iowa GOP figures like him, all the young people have been leaving before the ink has dried on their college degrees. We lost a representative and had to re-district. He lost Council Bluffs (appropriately nicknamed Counciltucky) and gained everything from Mason City to Ames. So he lost some of his safe red area and gained a Division I university (ISU) and some smaller colleges. He's being challenged by the wife of the current US Ag Secretary.

If youth and minorities in that district vote in 2008 numbers, he's toast.

yup.

one of iowa's senators is an old-school paul wellstone liberal democrat and the other is a crusty old-school (relatively) moderate republican. but, yeah, steve king is a douchebag of epic proportions. he is to iowa what michele bachmann is to minnesota: an embarrassment with a large megaphone.
