Kingdom Come

Why are all Representatives named King so bizarre? To wit:

Today, Rep. Steve King (R-Ia) says that gay marriage is a "purely socialist concept."

A couple months ago, Rep. Pete King (R-NY) called Michael Jackson a "pervert," and also had probably the most astounding fundraising video since Mike Gravel and the rock.

And Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.) has the most amazing anti-czar campaign yet, calculating that at Obama's rate of czar-creation, we'll have 272 of them by 2012.

Just wondering.
