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 among is too much stupid for Iowa's Shame.
