Peter King Still Babbling: ‘These guys from the Ted Cruz wing live in their own echo chamber’

Yes, he actually said echo chamber. The guy being ignored by everyone except for the media who like useful idiots actually thinks it’s other people living in an echo chamber.

Speaking to POLITICO in his Capitol Hill office, King rejected the notion that he, rather than the great majority of his colleagues who have supported the shutdown, is out of step with the national Republican electorate.

“I don’t consider these guys conservatives. I think the party is going in an isolationist trend. It’s appealing to the lowest common denominator in many ways. And this whole threat of defunding the government, to me, is not conservative at all,” said King, who added later: “Maybe we do live in different worlds. These guys from the Ted Cruz wing live in their own echo chamber.”

You know who the most popular Republicans are to the media these days? Anyone who wants to trash other Republicans. Funny how we don’t hear from Democrats upset with Obama.

Former Sen. Al D’Amato, a longtime King ally and the last Republican to represent New York in the Senate, said his fellow Long Islander was right to slap around his GOP cohorts — first for disrespecting New York, and now for steering the party into a dead-end confrontation with Obama.

“It was a ploy that has obviously failed, and even the yahoos must realize that it has failed,” said D’Amato, who grumbled that “the Northeast in particular [isn’t] held in high esteem by some of our Republican colleagues.”

Yahoos. Nice.
