King of Pain


Rep. Steve King (R-IA), last seen comparing Baghdad's death rate favorably to Washington, DC, is applying his homespun wisdom to our situation on the Mexican border. Here's King discussing the Patrick J. Buchanan Memorial Border Wall*.

"I also say we need to do a few other things on top of that wall, and one of them being to put a little bit of wire on top here to provide a disincentive for people to climb over the top. We could also electrify this wire with the kind of current that would not kill somebody, but it would be a discouragement for them to be fooling around with it. We do that with livestock all the time."

King also suggested that if Mexican immigrants successfully apply for American citizenship, they should be rewarded with a "wet, soft kiss, square on the lips. Like my Daddy used to give me."**
