Rep. Steve King (R-IA): "God bless him(Joe Wilson). He said what we were thinking,"
At an anti-immigration event last night, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) defended his colleague Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC), saying, "The President threw the first punch."

"A lot of us said, well, this health care bill is gonna fund illegals, and the President said, 'Prominent politicians are lying to you.' He said that on the floor of the House of Representatives," King said. "I don't think there's ever been a President comes to the House of Representatives as a guest of the members of the House and makes a declaration like he did. I mean, the President threw the first punch."

Wilson was "unfortunate", he said, to get caught in a pause in the noise, like when you're screaming to be heard in a crowd and then the crowd goes silent.

"God bless him. He said what we were thinking," King said, adding that Wilson is "an officer and a gentleman and a patriot."

4. King comes from Iowa where there are 2.3 percent black

White people for as far as you can see. And in Iowa, that is a long ways.

5. Clarification: Western Iowa.
Everything west of Des Moines is effectively Nebraska.

6. Oh please don't classify us western Iowans as Nebraskans
They are a whole other kind of crazy ass holes.

I grew up in the 5th district and don't remember it being that crazy. But then the only time you saw anyone that wasn't white was in the city.

The largest minority in Iowa is hispanic, its questionable how many of them are legal.


King probably helped Tyson take control of the pork plant in Storm Lake with their illegal workforce.
