Bleeding Heartland: When wingnuts collide

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

I'm grateful that the Iowa Independent bloggers listen to our local
Rush Limbaugh clones so I don't have to. If anything newsworthy comes
out of some right-wing radio show, I can read about it online. I
learned recently that no matter how crazy Congressman Steve King
seems, there are some conservatives who think he should be further
outside the mainstream. … You may recall that Steve King reacted quite
negatively to the Iowa Supreme Court's Varnum v Brien ruling. He
immediately called on the state legislature to pass a constitutional
amendment banning gay marriage. He also advocated imposing residency
requirements for marriage licenses "so that Iowa does not become the
gay marriage Mecca due to the Supreme Court's latest experiment in
social engineering." He has recorded anti-gay marriage robocalls for
the National Organization of Marriage.
