you say potato...

Representative Peter King wants to hold hearings about Un-American Activities Amongst the Mohammedans on these shores. Does the fact that he supported the IRA make him a hypocrite? Maybe
For Representative Peter T. King, as he seizes the national spotlight this week with a hearing on the radicalization of American Muslims, it is the most awkward of résumé entries. Long before he became an outspoken voice in Congress about the threat from terrorism, he was a fervent supporter of a terrorist group, the Irish Republican Army.
But more importantly, as we've pointed out before, the search for domestic enemies gets real messy, and real fanciful, real fast.
