King mocked on 'Daily Show'

Any comedian who uses Steve King as material is competing in the handicapped division. It's just too easy.

That said, The Sioux City Journal's Bret Hayworth points out that Jon Stewart had a field day the other day with the western Iowa congressman.

What’s the latest with Iowa Congressman Steve King, you ask? Yesterday he voted against the $825 billion economic stimulus package, citing it being strewn with unnecessary pork. And he’s taken some more bashing in the media, with The Daily Iowan editorial Monday saying he’s continuing to be an embarassment to the state and then at night getting raked pretty hard in a comedy bit by Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show.”

If Stewart is disagreeing with King, I know I'm on the right side of being a King fan. King is a true leader.

True leader? Name one piece of legislation that King has written and helped usher through the House during his tenure in D.C. If a true leader is defined by someone who grabs headlines through inflammatory remarks, then yes, King is the leader of the pack. Otherwise he's an embarrasment to Iowa.
