King and the Velvet Revolution

The headline above might be a good name for a band, but this post is about Congressman Steve King (R-Kiron, Iowa) and comments he made comparing the Tea Party activists who’re converging on Washington, D.C. with the Czechoslovakians’ “Velvet Revolution” in 1989.  A Huffington Post rep wrote this about the tea party rally.

The Daily Show played some of King’s comments at the Tea Party rally last night in the opening bit of the show.  King was also featured in the “moment of zen” at the end of the show.

This morning, King tweeted this:  Tea Party Patriots just called and issued a NATION WIDE call for all Patriots to pour into Washington, D.C. on Saturday to Kill the bill!
