Stephen Colbert had a field day with Rep. Steve King (R-Crazytown-IA) for his defense of dogfighting and animal cruelty that we wrote about here last week: Wingnut Rep. Steve King Defends Dog Fighting.

He also skewered him for his bizarre response over the dogfighting comments which Think Progress reported on here: Steve King Defends Dog Fighting Comments In Bizarre Diatribe:

Yesterday, ThinkProgress reported on Rep. Steve King’s (R-IA) comments that “there’s something wrong with” outlawing dogfighting when “people fighting” is legal. King has since tried to backtrack from the claim, arguing that while his words were “distorted,” he still believes that “we’ve crossed a moral line” by “elevating animals up to above that of humans.”

In explaining himself, King argues that animals have more rights than fetuses, and suggests that liberals have so devalued life, that a man can rape a young girl, kidnap her, force her to undergo an abortion across state lines, and then “drop her off at the swingset….and that’s not against the law in the United States of America.”

Colbert's response was laugh out loud funny:

COLBERT: What?! That's not against the law? Why not? Maybe Congressman King should do something about that. What? What? What? I'm being told that all of that is against the law? Well, bravo Congressman. Fast work. […]

I guess all Steve King is saying is we shouldn't judge him for having impregnated that dog and taking it across the border for a forced abortion to protect the world from his monstrous glassy-eyed man-puppies. Right?

That's got to be what he's saying, because otherwise, I can't figure out what the f**k he's talking about.

Neither can we Stephen. Neither can we.
