Republican Bigot Eruption: Steve King Says Al Qaeda Will Celebrate If Obama Wins

Expect to see more of this. Lots more. The Republican party, faced with a minority candidate with an unusual name, will be even less able than usual to reign in their natural racist and culturually retarded impulses. If there is a crack about ethnicity, religion, or any derivation from the standard issue GOP robot to be made - they will make it. I hope the McCain campaign is buying Tums for their candidate, in bulk.

An Iowa Republican congressman said Friday that terrorists would be "dancing in the streets" if Democratic candidate Barack Obama were to win the presidency.

Rep. Steve King based his prediction on Obama's pledge to pull troops out of Iraq, his Kenyan heritage and his middle name, Hussein.

"The radical Islamists, the al-Qaida ... would be dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they did on Sept. 11 because they would declare victory in this war on terror," King said in an interview with the Daily Reporter in Spencer.

The irony is that nobody has done more to help and validate Al Qaeda than George W. Bush, and his anointed follower, John McCain is just more of the same.
