The Joni Ernst Watch 12/8/2014

Joni “Make ‘em squeal” Ernst has been extra quiet lately. I expect that to change as the lame duck session of Congress comes to a close and the Republicans take control of the Senate. In full campaign mode for 2016, clowns like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul are sure to send things right off the rails. Iowa’s junior Senator will probably be shoveling coal as the train goes plummeting to its doom.

She is, however, a rising star in the party. Her latest activities have taken her to campaign stops in Louisiana supporting Bill Cassidy before his successful runoff election.

Steve King is never one to be outdone by another person’s brand of crazy. President Obama’s executive action on immigration, in line with the level of action taken by prior president’s, has got him all hot and bothered:

And I can look at this thing, as I have all throughout the Thanksgiving break, and try to conclude how it is that anybody can step into the House or the Senate chambers January 6 and take an oath to uphold this Constitution, this oath right here, having voted to fund the president’s lawless, unconstitutional act.

Yep, he thinks it is just unbelievable how someone could fund this action and take the oath of office. By the way, did you see Michele Bachmann lurking in the background? Isn’t her fifteen minutes of D.C. fame up yet?

King also wants to preemptively blame the president for any potential government shutdown. Why not just try and govern instead of threatening? Oh wait, it’s Steve King.

Apparently, Steve King is now the GOP’s “voice” when it comes to immigration policy. Need I remind anyone of how he views immigrants:

For everyone who’s a valedictorian, there’s another 100 out there that–they weigh 130 pounds and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert.

Steve King, proudly spewing vitriol since 1949.
