We half expected erstwhile politician (and fulltime asshole) Todd Akin to pipe up with the stoopid regarding this weeks’ events in Ferguson, Missouri. So far, at least, we have been spared.
However…immediately to our north, in the Land of Corn, Wind Turbines and Farmer’s Daughters, Representative Steve King gave in to the overwhelming urge to air his racism in a particularly odious fashion. In point of fact Rep. King claimed racial profiling was not a concern in Ferguson, Missouri, because all the protestors appeared to be of a single “continental origin.”
Frankly, we’re surprised Rep. King stopped there, what with his past references to those particular continental origins’ cantaloupe sized calves.
