If there is an honest man among them, its
probably Steve King.
Representative Joe Garcia (D-Fla) said that King's comments were "beneath the dignity of this body (The House) and this country". Sadly, the dignity of The House has become a low standard to meet. In a room filled with lying, backstabbing, greedy, partisan toadies of big industry, Boehner counts it a good work day if nobody gets bitch-slapped on camera. That is because fringe psychopaths like Steve King feel they are running the show now. And that is because the chief officer in charge of morale and deportment, The Speaker of the House, has allowed things to degrade to this point, as 'irresponsible and reprehensible' as that sounds.
GOP National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus recently told a gathering of Latino officials that the Republican Party is reshaping its outreach to minority groups. He said, "In America, it doesn't matter where you come from; it matters where you are going". Another term for 'reshaping' is 'gerrymandering', and guess what? From the shape of the 2014 Republican candidate roster, it looks like DREAMers will be going back to Mexico.
