Fuck Peter king!

Just wanted to vent and say what an asshole this guy is. He may not like MJ but how can you say those things on TV when he is a senator and people are still mourning MJ. Sure there is soo much MJ coverage and he may be sick of it but to say that those things is just disgraceful. I hope he gets a big backlash and damages his career!

Okey vent is over! Feel free to close this thread mods if you think it is inappropriate!

Nico

Bravo to this guy for not drinking the Kool Aid.

First time I've ever been tempted to donate money to a GOP member.

He's wrong if he thinks this is what politicans need to be spending their time on. I think the people who elected him wouldn't put this as their top priority.

Its also wrong for any of us to say that the praise/memory of him is unjustified because of his weirdness, and the allegations. Sure he was weird, but we will never fully understand his life/personality. The one thing we can look it is just how innovative a dancer and singer he was, and how much he brought the music world together, and increased what it meant to be a pop superstar for better or worse. There will never be anyone that can have that level of impact anymore, and in the end we should remember people for what we knew of them.

Peter King "leaning against" run for Senate

BY REID J. EPSTEIN
8:43 PM EDT, June 30, 2009

Rep. Peter King said Tuesday the odds of him challenging Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in 2010 are now "less than 50-50" after he was appointed to the House intelligence committee.

King (R-Seaford) said he told House Minority Leader John Boehner (R- Ohio) that he "probably" will not run for the Senate and spoke pessimistically about his ability to raise enough money for a statewide race.

"I'm probably leaning against it," King said. "There's no doubt I want to run. On the other hand I don't know if I can raise the $30 [million] to $40 million I'd need. Most people don't know who I am, the values I represent."

Still, he called Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) "very unpopular" in New York and said she could be an easy mark for a well-financed Republican. Any opponent, he said, would seek to tie her to African American Gov. David A. Paterson, who appointed her to the seat in January and has low poll numbers. "For an incumbent senator, I don't know if anyone has lower numbers. She can be very vulnerable," King said.

Gillibrand spokeswoman Bethany Lesser declined to comment.

I dont have a definitive opinion either way on Michael. I don't know if he did anything wrong. Neither do any of us. Let's mourn the loss for his family, and the loss to the music world and ignore the other stuff..

I must say though, for a SENATOR to say that, he has to resign immediately. The burden of proof principle, and the very basis of a civilised rule of law is that the courts are always right, and that people are innocent until proven guilty. So WHAT THE FUCK is a member of the Government saying that DIRECTLY CONTRADICTS a court ruling doing???

He is a member of the system he doesn't trust. He has no morals and must resign

He doesn't have faith in the legal system, if he says stuff like that. Seems like a prick and a half.

I agree, he is a law maker himself yet he goes against what the law said on MJ. It is very wrong. And those comments he said and how he called MJ a low life.. make him way more of a low life/low class person himself. Someone with class would never say such things about someone who just died and everyone is mourning.

So-oooo.....let me get this straight: you're calling this senator a low-life for calling Michael Jackson a low life, a man who admitted there's nothing wrong with sleeping in bed with children—regardless of the allegations— and for saying that people and the media should be honouring and focusing on the real heroes, the men and women who put their lives on the line each and every day.

And he's right. There's been wall-to-wall coverage of Jackson's death, meanwhile, everything else has been put on the backburner. And that just speaks to the sad state that the media, and society as a whole, is in right now.

Priorities, people. Priorities....

Not everyone is in mourning.
King has a right to his opinion, no matter how uneloquently he may have presented it. There are many who are not fans of Jackson the man, many who believe at his best he was a very disturbed individual who had some odd practices with underage house guests and at his worst was a child molester who beat 2 raps, 1 with money and 1 with a smitten jury.
So for those in that camp, seeing all the praise heaped on him can be be a bit much and King is making his point that there are others who deserve recognition.

Didn't he later put out a second statement backing off a bit, saying that he shouldn't have said the stuff about child molestor? I thought I saw something about that on the news last night.

The point is no one will know, so we celebrate what we did know, the positive he did. And as I said this is not what our lawmakers need to be devoting their time to (a comment here or there sure, but when you say something like that, it then requires a lot more time), and as dan_smee said, he is showing a lack of belief in the system he was elected to be a part of, that's back-handed and unprofessional.

Of course, if he's that categorical on something like this, I doubt he's one for really making informed decisions, seems like a gut, public-perception decision maker to me, the scary thing about many politicians and voters.

I partially agree with King. There has been media overkill over MJ's death. Yes, he was a super talented entertainer, but to have 24/7 coverage of him is too much. Soldiers are being killed in Afghanistan, Al Franken is in the Senate, ethnic riots are going on in China. Why not give them more than a mere mention in the hourly updates?

I hope that after today's memorial, the media would cool off on Michael's death, and give it equal coverage to the other stories.

As for MJ' being a "pervert", I do agree there's no solid proof of him being a pedophile, despite his very suspicious behavior. We could only wonder until there is something that completely says, yeah he molested children.

I think King had the right to say what he said. As a senator hopeful, he should exercise his freedom of speech, and as democratic citizens we should respect that.

He's absolutely right with regard to the media coverage. It's ridiculous - as are the celebrity obsessed 'mourners'.
