More Republican Dip-Shittery

So Caroline Kennedy has decided to not seek the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Hillary Clinton.

New York Representative Peter King (R-Bridge & Tunnel) has been someone who has hammered away at this idea from the very beginning. We've had to listen to him drone on and on about how this would be such a bad choice, detrimental for the state of New York and how she's not capable or qualified for the job.

So he's happy about this development, right? Right?

Sure didn't seem so when I saw him on cable news today. He seemed just as pissed about her not pursuing the seat as when she was still going after it. I saw him actually demanding that she explain herself, even suggesting that the American people have a right to know what happened and why she made this decision. He was so much more indignant about her pulling her name from consideration than he was about how unqualified she was for this job. And he was pretty damn indignant about that latter point.

So let me get this straight. According to Peter King (R-White People) any private citizen who decides not to seek public office has to explain him or her self to the American people.

Rrriiiiiight. And this idiot thinks he should be the next Senator from New York (he's planning on running in two years for this seat)?

So just for the record, an open statement to Peter King (R-Suburban Sprawl):

Rep. King, I will not be seeking the office of Senator, Governor, Representative, Attorney General or any other public office. This is mostly due to the fact that the majority of American people probably won't vote for an atheist vegetarian with an unapologetic history of drug use.

And also because I wouldn't be able to resist calling you a "fucking moron" every time we walked by each other in the hallway of the capitol.

I mean, seriously. Could you be any bigger of an idiot?

Have fun having your ass handed to you in the 2010 Senate election.

I'm very, VERY surprised he isn't listed in Dickipedia. I missed his banter this morning, which is just fine w/me. I usually try to miss King's expostulations in general.
