John Baird's Intellectual Godfather?

Republican Congressman, Steve King reacting to Stephen Colbert's appearance before a House committee said:
"Maybe we should be spending less time watching Comedy Central and more time considering all the real jobs that are out there, ones that require real hard labor," King said bitterly. He invoked the "Joe the Plumbers of the world who, many days, would prefer the aroma of fresh dirt to that of the sewage from American elitists who disparage them even as they flush."
Of course you know, Colbert couldn't let that one go:
"This is America! I don't want a tomato picked by a Mexican. I want it picked by an American, then sliced by a Guatemalan and served by a Venezuelan in a spa where a Chilean gives me a Brazilian."
We live in farcical times, my friends, when clowns are both running governments and mocking them at the same time.
