Must see video: King versus Kennedy

Northwest Iowa Congressman Steve King and Robert Kennedy, Junior,had a verbal confrontation yesterday during a House Judiciary Committee meeting.  Watch the exchange here.

Here's the key part:

King pressed Kennedy to explain one of his past statements.

"I just reflect back on a meeting in Clear Lake (Iowa) a few years ago and the quote that I recall…'Large scale hog producers were a greater threat to the United States and democracy than Osama bin Laden's terrorist network,' King said. "Is that an accurate quote?" Kennedy replied: "I don't know if that's an accurate quote, but I believe it and I support it."
