Rep. Steve King: Americans 'Come From Every Possible Planet'

Rep. Steve King (R-Wingnuttistan) jumbled his geography

I'm sure Rep. Steve King, who commutes between the planets Koch and WhackoBird just got a little confused about where he was today.

RightWingWatch:

Rep. Steve King got a little mixed up in his remarks at the Iowa Freedom Summit this morning, accidentally remarking that Americans “come from every possible planet.”

The Iowa Republican quickly caught himself and said that the DREAMers protesting the right-wing event are the ones who really come from outer space.

“We’re a great people, we have a vitality that’s unequaled on the planet, we come from every possible planet — every possible continent. There across the street [are] those people that come from the other planet,” he joked. King then returned to criticizing President Obama, alleging that the president is “eroding” America’s foundations of liberty and freedom.

Beam me up, Scotty.
