    waffled on the discharge petition question.  A profile in courage he is not.

    First they came for the slippery-slope fallacists, and I said nothing. The End.

      Actually , he is right. He doesn't want them associated with
      crazy. All those nice gray-haired Repubs that always show up for off year elections and primaries would never vote for Cruz because of his bad-boy behavior.

      King wants to project stability and reliability. You should tune into Hardball and listen to him talk to Chris Mathews.
      Mathews respects "old-time" Republicans as well.

        His problem is that he doesn't listen to his guests.  It always looks like he's about to loudly jump on them with the next idea that pops into his head.  The only thing he's good at is skewering unprepared guests who only know how to parrot talking points.

        I'll give you that King knows how to sound reasonable.  He's also a fast-talking New Yorker who avoids dressing up his point with BS.  But on his positions and votes, he can be as slimy as Eric Cantor.

      He had a perfect, golden opportunity to put his money where his mouth was and explicitly chose not to.
