The Shame of Iowa... 

Representative Steve King, Idiot Republican from Iowa's 5th district thinks the Iraqi torture is little more than hazing.
Washington, D.C. - U.S. Rep. Steve King of Iowa said Thursday that Iraqi prisoner abuse amounted to little more than "hazing" and called for Democrats to stop criticizing Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.
King said in a written statement that the abuse cannot compare to what Iraqi insurgents have done to Americans. "The dismembered and charred corpses of American contractors dangling over the Euphrates River in comparison to the abuse committed by a few soldiers at Abu Ghraib are like the crimes of Jeffrey Dahmer compared to those of Heidi Fleiss," said King.
Steve King's standards of decency are interesting. You only have to act slightly better than a serial killer or a whore to be okey-dokey in his book. That's a pretty tough standard there, Stevie Boy.

Gene Blanshan is King's opponent in the upcoming election. Show him some love.
