Romney Endorses Tea Party Rep. Steve King, Who Believes Raped Women Cannot Become Pregnant And Immigrants Are Like “Dogs”

At a campaign stop in Iowa today, Mitt Romney was introduced onstage by Tea Party Congressman Steve King. King praised Romney’s “faith and his love for Jesus Christ our savior” to the crowd of about 2,600 in a basketball gym at Northwestern College. Romney then took the stage, making his first appearance since the Republican National Convention, and endorsed Steve King in his Congressional race:

“I’m looking here at Steve King because this man needs to be your congressman again. I want him as my partner in Washington, D.C.”

When we say Steve King is “Tea Party,” we don’t just mean some Ayn Rand-reading fool.  We mean seriously deranged.  Like, Todd Akin-deranged. Like, Michele Bachmann-deranged. Crazy guy on the subway who throws Bibles at you-deranged.

In case you don’t remember, King was quick to defend Todd Akin’s assertion that women have magical uteruses which prevent them from becoming pregnant if they are “legitimately raped.”  In fact, he went one further.  According to a report by Sioux City, Iowa CBS affiliate KMEG, King said he hasn’t heard of instances in which young victims of statutory rape or incest become pregnant either.

Among King’s other greatest hits?  Let’s tick them off:

  • Al Qaeda would cheer an Obama victory.”
  • He’s against stem cell research.
  • This:   “Some claim that the Arizona [ID] law will bring about racial discrimination profiling. First let me say, Mr. Speaker, that profiling has always been an important component of legitimate law enforcement. If you can’t profile someone, you can’t use those common sense indicators that are before your very eyes. Now, I think it’s wrong to use racial profiling for the reasons of discriminating against people, but it’s not wrong to use race or other indicators for the sake of identifying that are violating the law.”
  • He has compared illegal immigrants to dogs, arguing that we should select out the best bred ones and reject the lazy ones.

Uhh, Mitt? Who vetted this decision to endorse Steve King or even stand on stage next to him? You do realize the primary is over now.  You can shake the Etch-a-Sketch and go back to being center-right. You don’t need to be wacko-severely-conservative anymore.

        I did and it's working, but I have this strange craving for sauerkraut and strutting around the neighborhood in jack boots.

        Hmm…Jack Boots? Any relation to Puss N' Boots?

        This is all so confusing.

        BYE FOR NOW!

    Little known fun fact. Steve King is the younger paler brother of Dr Martin Luthor King. That's right! You heard it here first. Steve King is a secret blah guy. Why I've seen him remove giant crosses put on people lawns by insensitive evangelicals, by setting it on fire. Go Steve! The new black panther party is counting the days to where you can braid your beard hair with the rest of them.VIVA LA REVOLUCION!

    It seems like maybe the paragraph about King supporting Akin's comments is pretty out of context. At least the article that is linked only says that he can attest to Akin's character and that Akin should be judged by his policies and voting record, but that he doesn't approve or agree with Akin's comment.
