John Boehner thinks Steve King is crazy

By Michael J.W. Stickings

You'll recall that Iowa Republican Steve King made some remarkably bigoted comments about the children of undocumented immigrants the other day -- essentially that most of them are drug mules.

There's no doubt that many Republicans find this sort of thing offensive and are embarrassed by it, but rarely do they actually call out their own.

But House Speaker John Boehner, to his credit, has apparently had enough of this wacko, and he's basically telling him to shut the fuck up:

Boehner on Thursday called his comments about illegal immigrants "deeply offensive and wrong."

"What he said does not reflect the values of the American people or the Republican Party," the speaker said.

I would agree with the first part, but the second part is open to question. Certainly most Americans do not share such bigotry, but who is more in tune with the values of the Republican Party, Boehner or King?
