You might remember Congressman Steve King (R-IA) from his starring role in our Impeachment Supercut last week, but the anti-immigrant calf fetishist went all Electric Boogaloo this weekend, once again threatening to impeach President Obama over the possibility of executive action on immigration. King once again coyly tried to avoid “the i-word,” but Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace asked him, flat out, if impeachment would be on the table if the President took executive action.

Wallace: But you’re saying if he were to do that then impeachment would be on the table?

King: I think then we have to start, sit down and take a look at that. Where would we draw the line otherwise? If that’s not enough to bring that about, then I don’t know what would be.

To be clear, King saying Republicans need to “start” to look at impeachment is like urging Wile E. Coyote to maybe take a glance at the Acme catalog, but surely, this clip closes the case on John Boehner’s absurd assertion that Democrats are the ones concocting all of this impeachment talk, doesn’t it? I mean, of course the Democrats are taking advantage of the GOP’s nutso neo-nullification strategy, but surely, no rational adult could blame them for the strategy itself.

Well, not unless you include This Week host George Stephanopoulos in the category of rational adults, his possible troubles with high shelves notwithstanding. Over the weekend, senior White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer, the man who cleverly conjured the entire impeachment narrative at the far-reaching media juggernaut that is the Christian Science Monitor Breakfast, had to once again answer for his crimes.

    Uh, you might want to correct that headline. Crazy Steve King is a Republican, not a Democrat.

      They say that a joke loses it’s impact if it has to be explained…

        Yeah, I don’t think the joke was succeeding. Looked too much like a flub. Maybe “Democrats (Like Steve King, R-IA)…”

        • J Kingston Pierce August 4th, 2014 at 2:13 pm

          I agree. The joke is too subtle to work well.

      Tommy was using humor in his title.

      Where have you been? It’s a joke and anyone who didn’t get it isn’t paying attention. Steve King is a laugh-out-loud teabagger idiot of the highest order.

    Obama is helping to sell guns at a record pace and RWNJ’s are helping the democrats in raising funds. Am I losing my mind, what the heck is going on?

    I’m all for impeachment. Everyone should have peaches, they’re delicious.
