Congressman Peter King: “I’m Willing to be Called a Cocksuckin’ Retarded Inbred”
OOPS, I must have mis-read that quote. The word was “Bigot.” My bad.
Rep. Peter King (R—Dildo) continues to defend his ongoing bigotry and hatred toward Muslims. He said:
“I hate those fuckin’ ragheads! Every last one of them!” OK, that wasn’t his exact wording. But you know that’s what he was thinking. In your heart you know he’s a KKK wannabe.
There’s one tiny silver lining to Peter King’s existence: He’s a constant reminder that racial prejudice isn’t confined to the south or any other specific region. His New York congressional district must have more rednecks than all the southern states put together.
In other news: Mitch McConnell takes one on the chin (all forty-seven of them). John Kerry lashed out at Senate Republicans in general — McConnell in particular — for their ongoing delay of the New START agreement.
The main rightwing talking points against New START are: “this treaty is being rushed,” and “why are we doing this NOW???”
First of all, the Senate has already spent more time debating New START than they spent on the first START treaty, START II and the Moscow Treaty. Secondly, the reason the Senate is taking up the New START agreement “NOW?!?!?!?!” is because Senate Republicans have spent the last few months stalling and delaying the New START treaty.
There's a certain cause and effect sequence there. (Republicans, don't worry; don't strain yourselves trying to put two and two together.)
We can all look back to sometime in high school or junior high, when we kept putting off a term paper until the night before it was due. And then we were up all night, moaning and groaning about “ooohhh, why do I have to do this NOW?”
Did these Republican senators ever graduate from high school?
