Did You Know the President Was Black?

Rep. Steve King, Republican from Iowa, wants his constituents to know just what kind of man he's dealing with in the White House:

King is referring to legislation created to settle what is known as the Pigford case.

King noted that "Bobby Scott of Virginia and others" introduced legislation in the House that would expand the government's responsibility in the settlement; Scott is African American.

King then went on: "Figure this out, Madame Speaker: We have a very, very urban Senator, Barack Obama, who has decided he's going to run for president, and what does he do? He introduces legislation to create a whole new Pigford claim."

Sooner or later, King will be reduced to screaming "he's black!" and forcing his House colleagues to watch this video whenever he rails against the president:

Is the president blackity black? Yes. Yes he is.
