The Woodbury Democrat: King of Kontradiction

Excerpted from this post at The Woodbury Democrat

I just realized something. My representative to congress, Steve King
(R-IA), wants it both ways. He wants his cake, and he wants to eat it
too. Go figger. After United States President George Walker Bush,
Republican, vetoed giving poor sick children medical help,
Representative King stepped forward to defend the President. This in
itself is not unusual -- looking at Mr. King's voting record reveals
that he votes with the President nearly every single time he casts a
vote. What was unusual in this matter is that people in Sioux City
gathered outside Mr. King's office in peaceful protest, waving signs
with the number of children in Mr. King's district that will be denied
health care due to his refusal to stand up for his constituents. I
don't remember the exact quote, but I saw Mr. King on TV saying
something like, "just because a bunch of people stand on the sidewalk
with signs doesn't make them right."
