Republican Congressman Steve King is certainly not the shiniest penny in the fountain, but his bizarre defense of incest this week finally earned him the scorn of some of the most prudent right wingers out there.

Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses these bizarre and disgusting comments from King.
