Anyone should be outraged by any politician who makes slapping/smacking motions or threatening gestures toward photos of other politicians. The fact that King's not-so-random hand motions specifically targeted a woman is all the more disgusting and outrageous. How about we print some photos of his wife or daughters and smack those around in effigy for the hell of it?
King: "My goal is to inspire people to stand up for the Constitution, to stand up to fiscal responsibility and to stand up for the rule of law."
Yes, and the most obvious way to do that is to stand on a balcony (in the Ivory Tower) with a photograph of the first female speaker of the House and mime smacking her around... you know, instead of, say, holding a sign that reads: "Stand up for the Constitution" or "Stand up for Fiscal Responsibility" or "Stand up for the rule of law".
Nope, get videotaped making threatening assault gestures...
Check out this post from Seeing Eye Chick and the video, too.
