Rick Perry and the “King” of Hypocrites

Rep. Peter King (R-NY) quite properly criticizes Rick Perry for calling Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke “treasonous” for using standard monetary policy.  King says that Perry won’t do well unless “he tones down.”  Excellent advice, but King’s stone comes postmarked “Glass House, Long Island.”  King has been holding fear-mongering hearings on what he terms “Radicalization in the American Muslim Community” to promote his Islamophobia.  Like Perry, King sees treason where it doesn’t exist.  Both men need to tone it down, way down.
