Iowa's Shame

Steve King (R-Iowa), Iowa's primary congressional spokesperson for people who don't like Iowa, was live on television on Saturday fresh from being denied a long-prized committee chair on Immigration. At the same time, the news broke of the murderous rampage directed against Gabrielle Giffords and others.

Someone at this office put together a statement for his signature:

“We serve together and she is outgoing, personable and widely respected. It is inconceivable that anyone could harbor a vile, vindictive or malicious attitude towards her..."

Inconceivable where such attitudes come from?

February 22, 2010:

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) told a crowd at CPAC on Saturday that he could "empathize" with the suicide bomber who last week attacked an IRS office in Austin, and encouraged his listeners to "implode" other IRS offices, according to a witness.

Just inconceivable.
