Just when you thought Rep. Steve King’s pronouncements couldn’t get any more bizarre, he goes and claims that he is “as Hispanic and Latino” as Julian Castro. Especially odd, since he has long said that his family’s background is Irish, German and Welsh.

I’m baffled. Absolutely baffled. Is he joking? What would be funny about it if he meant it as a joke? And if not, seriously, WTF? It may be time to start drug testing members of Congress.
