First, a disclaimer: I love Steve King. Steve King is a good friend of mine and has been for a decade, ever since I was privileged to work for him during his first term in Congress. That said, I would defend him whether he was a friend or not.
My hometown newspaper, the Omaha World-Herald, has recently gone from Cowtown Daily to Warren Buffett Times since Omaha’s radically liberal local tycoon bought it in 2011. I have written that Buffett is “George Soros with a smile” because he is amiable and popular while supporting the same left-wing causes backed by the prickly, creepy Soros.
