Republican congressman Steve King from Iowa, at a rally for Gov. Sarah Palin this past weekend:
"When you take a lurch to the left you end up in a totalitarian dictatorship.”
"There is no freedom to the left. It's always to our side of the aisle.”
"We choose freedom and liberty.”
Keith Olbermann, of MSNBC's Countdown responds:
Presumably that's why the Congressman's party was good enough to torture prisoners, eavesdrop on Americans, suspend Habeas Corpus, demonize dissent, pay news organizations to run favorable stories, and generally come as close to a totalitarian dictatorship as any American president ever has.
