The Joni Ernst Watch 7/13/2015

When it comes to Joni “Make ‘em squeal Joni” Ernst or Steve King it’s clown shoes all day, every day. Recently, the conversation in Iowa has turned away from our homegrown whack-a-doos and focused on the nutcase circus that will be the Republican caucus.

Steve King cannot let marriage equality alone. Knowing that his side has lost the war on the issue since same sex marriage is now the law of the land, Rep. Steve King Wants Congress to Denounce Supreme Court’s Marriage Equality Ruling There is absolutely nothing more productive than fighting symbolic rear guard actions in defense of hatred.

Rep. Steve King defends Trump’s comments on immigrant rape

I asked them the question — how many of these girls that go into a transfer home, how many of these girls are raped along the way?

And I asked at place after place, the most consistent answer I got was 75 percent, and I heard Donald Trump say in Winterset, Iowa, a week ago Saturday night, that 80 percent are raped. That’s consistent with what I learned.

So yes, they’re being raped, they’re being murdered, they’re being brutalized, and when I know I’ve been challenged on that, ‘well you can’t conclude that (it’s) Mexicans or Central Americans that are doing the raping,’ well, can you conclude anything else? They are being raped, they are victims of rape, and the price for the transit sometimes is, often is and predominantly is their body.

I give you Steve King defender virtue and Donald Trump.

Scott Walker is officially in today, although he kind of sort of announced his run via Twitter which seems really Presidential and all. Nothing says leader of the free world quite like 140 characters or less. Iowa Republican Presidential Caucus

You have to take these polls with a grain of salt because there are fourteen candidates who appear on the list and for a time Donald Trump was the number two guy in the state. Granted, Donald Trump takes the lead in North Carolina poll

Speaking of the Donald or rather what the Donald is speaking about he has inserted his big fat foot into his belligerent blow hole again. Donald Trump: ‘Infectious disease is pouring across the border’

 The Border Patrol knows this. Likewise, tremendous infectious disease is pouring across the border.

Stay classy.

Ted Cruz, who looks like he has just smelled fart every time he gets up to speak in front of an audience, Ted Cruz’s favorite talking point: money Why? Because his campaign does not have much else going for it besides some filibuster showboating with children’s books. And a coloring book. I always forget about the coloring book.

Lindsey Graham, who has to be considered a fringe candidate at best, looks like he is going to stake his claim to the Republican nomination on his willingness to get into more wars. One Presidential Candidate Just Promised To Wage War In 4 Different Countries
