Rep. Steve King Empathizes With Suicide Pilot

Wacko Congressman Steve King (Republican, of course) from Iowa, said he "empathizes" with the suicide pilot who took his plane into the IRS building in Texas and killed people.

To which we might ask, Are there really no limits for these despicable people anymore?

What happened to upholding the rule of law, encouraging the keeping of basic civic norms? Is the new norm for the Republican party simply to out-wacko the next guy?

Going further, Rep. King reportedly called on his listeners (at the CPAC meeting) to "implode" other IRS offices, whatever that means.

I assume he is aware that the tax system is part of the federal government, the same federal government that he is part of, and that it is staffed by actual human beings, who have families, feelings, and all the rest. It seems to me that their deaths and injuries would also be important, being American citizens. But, hey, that's just me.

When you're an actual Congressman, shouldn't you at least have a lick of sense?
