DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Iowa Congressman Steve King says terrorists would celebrate if Democratic candidate Barack Obama won the presidency.

King, a Republican, bases his prediction on several criteria: Obama's pledge to pull troops out of Iraq, his Kenyan heritage and his middle name Hussein -- a reminder of Iraq's former leader.

King, in an interview today with the Daily Reporter in Spencer, said al-Qaida would -- quote -- "be dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they did on September 11th."

King says terrorists would declare victory in the war on terror because Obama would pull troops out of the Middle East.

The congressman added -- quote -- "They'll be dancing in the streets because of his middle name, they'll be dancing in the streets because of who his father was."

7. Northwest Iowa is very red
And very conservative. I had to visit Orange City for a graduation and I couldn't wait to get out of there. I am very thankful that I live in the part of Iowa that has some common sense.

15. Ya got that right,
I spent 6 days in Council Bluffs for the Edwards campaign. After one day there I understood why the staffers called it Council-tucky Bluffs.

9. Obama Dance Party!
this asshole lends credence to an acronym I once heard about Iowa: Idiots Outside Wandering Around

and before I get spanked it was a very delightful and charming resident of Iowa who shared that with me.

10. The good news is that King is toast...
He sees the writing on the wall. Iowa will loose a seat in the 2010 census and redistricting will pull the psycho western part of the state into a district with the more liberal center or northern parts. He simply will not be able to win for much longer. I think he is the biggest asshole in Congress...and I saw Jack Kingston on Bill Maher

12. I just did a google search on Rep King.
He is worried about the link with porno / planned parenthood /
and sex.

He really is dumb.

17. I tried to email Rep. King......no dice have the wrong zipcode.
But I did send messages to my Rep. and Senator Durbin about this idiot asking them to speak out about the innuendo and stop the smears on Obama.

18. Wrong side of state to vote him out
I am so thankful that I can vote for my friend Bruce Braley in Eastern Iowa instead! Maybe some of us on this side of the state can get over to help King's oponent with phone calls!

19. Ridiculous statements like King's......
have a way of coming back and biting the speaker in the ass, because sane people can see how stupid the statements are.

Unfortunately, we have a tremendous number of in-sane people in this country.
