Iowa's Shame Part Infinity

Congress' most inveterate racist 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 least when they are expressed so overtly. But when it comes to stupid, no 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.

Steve King shouldn’t apologize for obsessing about the limbs of Hispanic boys. It’s who Republicans are, it’s what they do.

But cantaloupes? This sounds like a violation of Rule 34.

I think Steve King's ambition in life is to be known as Iowa's Looney Louie.

He's certainly working overtime on that reputation.
