Rep. Steve King hates energy-efficient lightbulbs. He hates them the
way other people might hate cockroaches, or malaria. He hates them
exactly as much as he hates communism. It's a powerful kind of hate. A
powerful, head-scratching, dumb as a post kind of hate.
Hate, as it turns out, is the perfect topic for a speech at CPAC, i.e.
the Conservative Political Action Conference, i.e. the convention for
crazy people to talk about how minorities are oppressing them and how
government needs to stop rounding up millionaires and sending them to
the Tax Gas Chambers or whatever the hell the latest theory on the
latest bumper sticker ends up being. So Steve King, who so virulently
hates efficient lightbulbs that he has entirely forgotten that it was
the Bush administration that came up with the new rules promoting
them, found himself right in his element:
[King's] longest rant on energy regulations was about energy-efficient
lightbulbs, which were used in Congressional offices during now-House
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) time as Speaker of the
Every good conservative story has to reference Nancy Pelosi. This is a
given. Nancy Pelosi is the personification of everything conservatives
loathe in government. Why? I have no idea. Couldn't begin to tell you.
According to them, however, she is 10 times more liberal than Ted
Kennedy, as cruel as the worst Disney villain, and more evil than
Cthulhu. You know those spooky campfire stories about people getting
lost in the woods and murdered one by one? When conservatives tell the
story, Nancy Pelosi is the killer. Even as we speak, Reps. Steve and
Peter King (no relation) are introducing a bill mandating that
whenever any conservative mentions Nancy Pelosi, they must do so in a
sinister voice, and in a dark room, and hold a flashlight under their
King referred to the House office building janitors during Pelosi's
time as speaker as her "Stasi troops" -- referring to oppressive
secret police in East Germany until 1990 -- saying they unscrewed the
lightbulbs in his office to replace them with energy-efficient
Here you have to feel sorry for the poor schmuck janitors who, by
going around changing office lightbulbs, have now become the
equivalent of the vicious communist-era East German secret police. Get
it? Communism. Already we have more drama building in this
lightbulb-changing story than I have ever heard in the entire history
of stories about changing lightbulbs. I never once heard a story about
the East German secret police barging into offices and unscrewing
people's lightbulbs, but if anything that shows that these janitors
are even more cruel and oppressive.
