The first time I heard about Rep. Steve King was when he endorsed Fred Thompson before the Iowa cauces in 2008. I liked him then, and I love him now.
This video is from the October 28, 2009 House Judiciary Committee hearing. Congressman Steve King questions NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on comments he made regarding Rush Limbaugh.
King completely nails Goodell on several points: 1) Nothing Rush said was racist. Rush criticized the media, not McNabb. 2) Most of the quotes used against Rush were completely fabricated 3) Fergie and J-Lo, both NFL owners of the Miami Dolphins, have made far worse statements than Rush Limbaugh ever has.
Goodell had no response for King. This was a straight-up Smackdown. Bravo, Rep. King.
