When it comes to Joni “Make ‘em squeal” 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 is really feeling his oats now that the national conversation has switched to Ted Cruz’s campaign. Having endorsed Cruz, King feels like he is the conservative kingmaker of Iowa.
Steve King was not even the most insane politician in the state of Iowa. That crown goes to Iowa state senator Mark Chelgren, a Republican of course, who suggested that the U.S. should execute illegal immigrants:
[i]f one is found to have crossed into the country illegally, committed a felony while here, then been deported, he supports executing that individual if they break America’s immigration laws a second time.
With Ted Cruz “surging” in the polls, but still behind Donald Trump by a significant margin and hated by everyone who has ever met him, we need to take a closer look at the most smug politician in America. He is a liar. He is the type of candidate who will accept an endorsement from someone advocating domestic terrorism, but try and walk it back when someone actually follows through with that domestic terrorism.
Ted Cruz is also the kind of man who will try and label a mass murderer as transgendered and liberal. Because in right wing thought bubbles those two adjectives automatically make someone suspect and less than human.
Ted Cruz is the type of politician who offers bullshit legislation in the aftermath of a tragedy in order to score cheap political points with myopic voters.
Ted Cruz also has a persecution complex. Apparently the mainstream media is out to get him and he has the facts.
It could be worse, I guess, because we could be talking about Rick Santorum.
