You guys, we are not even kidding about this. Iowa Rep. Steve King, perhaps feeling a little heat since ThinkProgress pointed out that he actually and for real loves it when people murder puppies, has gone absolutely around the bend. And we mean MORE around the bend than Steve King usually assays.
In explaining himself, King argues that animals have more rights than fetuses, and suggests that
liberals have so devalued life, that a man can rape a young girl, kidnap her, force her to undergo an abortion across state lines, and then “drop her off at the swingset….and that’s not against the law in the United States of America.”
We think — and we’re just talkin’ out loud here, just spitballin’! — that if Steve King does not know it is against the laws of the United States of America for a man to impregnate a 13-year-old and take her across state lines and force her to have an abortion and then drop her back off at the swingset, perhaps Steve King has no business being employed in the body that makes the laws for the United States of America. Oh, who’re we kidding? Of course he should. Romney/King 2012, and cetera.
