Today, U.S. Representative Steve King, whose greatest hits include an absolutely astonishing array of real bad shit, expressed doubt that without rape or incest, humanity would even exist at all. Truly there is no amount of money you could pay me to take a look inside this man’s head.

The Des Moines Register reported on his remarks, which were intended as justification for his opposition to abortion even in the case of rape or incest, but read as a piece of absolutely atrocious science fiction self-published by Pat Robertson:

U.S. Rep. Steve King told the Westside Conservative Club on Wednesday that humanity might not exist if not for rape and incest throughout human history.

“What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled out anyone who was a product of rape or incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?” he said in Urbandale, Iowa. “Considering all the wars and all the rapes and pillages that happened throughout all these different nations, I know that I can’t say that I was not a part of a product of that.”

Every day the Republicans give me a Ho. Lee. Shit. moment of the day. This may be the moment of decade. Of course I thought that yesterday when whatshisface said the Statue of Liberty engraving was only talking about “European” immigrants. I’m sure tomorrow will bring a fresh new horror.
