Who Hijacked Our Country

Now Entering Steve-Kingistan

We don’t know yet what this new country will be called. Rep. Steve King (R—GuidedByVoices) wants to form his own country. And he wants it to be full of teabaggers, birthers, tenthers, racists and all the rest of the winners who’ve been shouting and screeching against health care reform.

What to name the baby — Teabagistan, Birtherville, Racistan, Steve King’s Padded Room? How about a contest?

Last night, right after Freedom Died — tortured and murdered by the United States House of Representatives — Steve King and Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R—Tinfoil) went outside to console the mourning teabirthers. King said:

“I just came down here so I could say to you, God bless you … You are the awesome American people…If I could start a country with a bunch of people, they’d be the folks who were standing with us the last few days.”

I wonder where this new paradise will be. I don’t know about you, but I’m already making my vacation plans.

I actually have some helpful suggestions up today for KKKing and his pals.

I guess since these "patriots" no longer wish to be par of this country, we just boot all those whiners out to some where else, say, Juarez Mexico...

Who cares what it will be called is this woman opinion. They won't be here so it's all good, as long as they don't occupy any part of these United States. I'll even help gather money for those that need it to move.

Should we send troops to Fort Sumter?

All King has to do is go down the road to S.C., and ask for a show of hands of all those who ardently support Sen. DeMint, then continue on down to Georgia, and ask for a show of hands for all those who think Saxby Chambliss is a great senator.

That, and some stragglers from Palin and Bachmann speaking events should be all King needs to seed his wingnut paradise.

I just hope Texas secedes and the whole sorry lot of them emigrate there.

This mob should look to Somalia for inspiration on what can achieved without big government, or in Somalia's case no government at all.

I would love it if the Red states were to go form their own country.

They'd be totally fucked. In the aggregate, red states take in more in federal services than they produce in tax revenue, have a lower median income, lower standard of living, weaker production base and vastly lower standard of education than the blue states, again in the aggregate.

If only we could find a way to keep Atlanta, an island of blue awash in an ocean of red. On the other hand, I could just move.

I'm not sure I get it. Were you being funny having (I Assume) King holding up the book "My life in the Klan" as it bio?

I own the book (out on loan) and it's written by a journalist named Jerry Thompson who went undercover for about a year with the Klan. The book helped destroy them.

I don't remember King being mentioned.

JR: Good suggestions; good riddance to them.

Bee: I like it.

Lew: Juarez would be nice, especially if they're all forced to wear DEA jackets while they're walking through the drug cartels' turf.

Jess: I definitely don't want them blighting any part of this country. If they want to leave, then Leave.

Erik: LOL. If these "rebels" want to re-enact the Civil War, they'd better be careful what they're wishing for.

SW: I still want King's wingnut paradise to be somewhere else completely. A deserted, a melting ice floe; anywhere but here.

Holte: Somalia, a capital idea. That has to be the world's most "limited" government (unless it's Sudan). The wingtards would be happy as clams.

jadedj: Yes, Moranland, where Inglish is the Offical Language.

Randal: Aren't they the same place?

Thomas: Unfortunately I think there are several islands of blue in Red America. New Orleans, Mobile...

I'd rather just have the rightwads move totally out of here.

Erik: I assume it was Photo Shop; he uses that a lot at his site.

Kvatch: Works for me.

Just keep in mind, that island of blue has a big red blot, CNN, within it.
