Rep Steve King, the Todd Akin of Iowa, said something stupid again—no, I’m not talking about his support for animal fighting, but something else—and there is video. King said:
As America, we’ve decided that we’re going to process everybody the same. So that means the 75-year-old grandmother gets the spread-eagle search and while that happens, maybe the 20-year-old Middle Eastern male waltzes through with a smirk on his face. I’m not making that up. I’ve seen that. That image will not ever leave my mind.
I’m not quite sure why King is so fascinated by the image of a 75-year-old grandma getting the old “spread-eagle search,” but I’m sure I don’t really want to know the content of his erotic fantasies.
What I want to call your attention to in the video below is the little boy, who after King makes his dumb comment, says something to a woman, presumably his mother—why else would a kid sit in the presence of a fanatical politician unless his mom made him?—and I now have used my special Ersthwhile Conservative disgronificator to discern what it was the little boy was asking his mom:
BOY: Were you and daddy doing a spread-eagle search the other night? ‘Cause that image will never leave my mind neither.
MOM: No, we were just rehearsing for out next airplane trip out to see grandma. Now shut up and listen to the nice congressman.
