Rep. Steve King

Just because he's soooo annoying. Today:

As I commented on FB today:
Go and read up on how he keeps being re-elected. That district is a huge rural backwater--crusty white farmers control local politics. And King has a talent for telling them what they want to hear, such as his support for corn subsidies and calling for tariffs on foreign-grown soybeans. He doesn't actually DO anything, he just "plays to his base" constantly.
The chances of his re-election next year aren't good. But he can't stop shooting his mouth off, because it's the only weapon he has.
