    Just the latest example of A Republican sticking his foot in his mouth. Let's see, they've already alienated blacks, women and even the moderates in their own party. I guess it only makes sense to start in on Muslims and multiculturalism. And all in an election year.

    Steve King: TSA Gives Grandma 'The Spread-Eagle Search' While '20-Year-Old Middle Eastern Male Waltzes Through'

    During a town hall meeting in Le Mars, Iowa, King told attendees that he disagrees with federal officials who think that airport security should follow a uniform procedure for passenger screening.

    "As America, we've decided that we're going to process everybody the same," King said. "So that means the 75-year-old grandmother gets the spread-eagle search and while that happens, maybe the 20-year-old Middle Eastern male waltzes through with a smirk on his face. I'm not making that up. I've seen that. That image will not ever leave my mind."

    "But we have to do that, apparently, because we're so squeamish about making judgment calls that we've put everybody through a formula and a process so that everybody gets searched, and I don't know if we'll ever get away from that," King added.

    During the same event, King criticized multicultural groups at Iowa State University, recalling a time he browsed through the school's directory of student organizations after speaking on the campus several years ago.

    "It started with Asians and it ended with Zeitgeist, so from A to Z, and most of them were victims' groups -- victimology -- people that feel sorry for themselves, and they're out there recruiting our young people to be part of the group that feels sorry for themselves," King said.

    I wholeheartedly agree with the Congressman.

    Boston should ban those damned victimological Sant Paddy's Day parades.

    Is what he said the truth? or is it a lie? And why is it that we have to lie so as not to alienate someone? Explain that.

    I was just saying on 9/10/01, "I don't remember 19 guys hijacking four planes with box cutters and crashing them into buildings lately."


    :razz:


    The problem I have with the Congressman's remarks is that he starts out with what could be a rational and legitimate (if that is still a word that is allowed) argument, but then he dons a clown hat and reaches down his own throat and pulls his ass out of his mouth and begins spewing a bunch of rabid bullshit. So he blew himself, and whatever point he was trying to make, up.

    ROD BLAGOJEVICH, Governor of Illinois, stated that the Senate seat &#8220;is a f&#8217;ing valuable thing, you just don&#8217;t give it away for nothing.&#8221; He had a good friend, too.

    Tony Rezko &#8220;assisted Blagojevich in setting up the state&#8217;s first Democratic administration in twenty years. Rezko was able to have business associates appointed onto several state boards. Rezko and several others were indicted on federal charges in October 2006, for using their connections to the state boards to demand kickbacks from businesses that wanted to do business with the state. While the others pleaded guilty to the charges, Rezko pleaded not guilty and was found guilty of 16 of the 24 charges filed against him.&#8221; (Wiki)
