Republican Congressman Steve King might be losing it

He defended dog-fighting earlier this week, and now video has surfaced of King holding a townhall meeting last week in which he fully embraces birtherism.

When asked about his views on where President Obama was born, King outrageously suggested that the birth announcements found in Hawaii newspapers may have actually been telegraphed from Kenya by President Obama’s parents. As in, he’s suggesting the President was born in Kenya.

King also noted his staff has investigated this issue – meaning taxpayer dollars were wasted on King’s birther crusade. Luckily – we here at the Thom Hartmann Program are about to launch our own investigation to figure out what exactly Congressman Steve King is smoking?

Another one bites the dust the surviving model will be of the Joe Walsh and Alan West mod.

If Democrats really want to mock this "birther" debate, and it deserves to be mocked, they should play this card back on Romney.

Mitt Romney said his father was born in Mexico, and that Mitt had gone to Mexico at a very early age. It is quite probable that Mitt Romney was born in Mexico and lied about it. He hasn't released his long-form birth certificate to prove otherwise. What's he trying to hide?

Mitt Romney needs to release his long-form birth certificate, along with his tax returns.

Put that argument in the media and watch the sparks fly. Good times had by all.
