The first rule of Rep. Peter King (R-NY) Fight Club is that you never stop talking about Peter King Fight Club. "Boxing is good self-defense," said King after his bout with former New York kickboxing champion Josh Foley. "Being in the public light, you never know when you might need it."
The second rule of Peter King Fight Club is that you commit a minor ethics violation when you join Peter King Fight Club. (The watchdog organization CREW criticized King for favoring one local business over others when participating in charity boxing events.)
The third rule of Peter King Fight Club: once you see Peter King in boxing shorts, you can never unsee it.

Look, Rep. Peter King knows an "apology tour" when he sees one. And all those supposed facts that you fact-checkers check with your fact-checking machines don't mean a goddamn thing, because an "apology tour" is something that you feel in your heart…
Soledad O'Brien: Everybody keeps talking about this apology tour and apologies from the president.
Rep. Peter King: It is.
O'Brien: I'm trying to find the words I'm sorry, I apologize in any of those speeches. Which I have the text of all those speeches in front of me. None of those speeches at all, if you go to factcheck.org which we check in a lot, they all say the same thing. They fact check this.
King: I don't care what fact check says.
O'Brien: There are fact checks. You may not care, but they're a fact checker. I'm reading the speeches.
King: No. Soledad, what I'm saying is any common sense interpretation of those speeches, the president's apologizing for the American position. That's the apology tour.
Little did Soledad O'Brien know, but Peter King is actually the world's leading authority on recognizing apology tours. And don't bother looking that up with your fact-checkers. Just accept it.

Despite the fact that he's currently polling way way way way way waaaaay beneath current frontrunner Mitt Romney in the New Hampshire polls, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani — who, if I'm not mistaken, was involved with 9/11 somehow — thinks that he sees a way to the top of the Granite State primaries…
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani isn't just thinking about running for president next year: It's his obsession and he's already mapping out a strategy to knock off GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney in New Hampshire.
According to a long-time supporter, New York Rep. Peter King, running and winning this time is "almost a full-time business for him."
What's more, adds King, Giuliani has already been "talking to people in New Hampshire" about his strategy to focus all his early attention there, not the Iowa caucus, because beating Romney in the former Massachusetts governor's political backyard will propel the New Yorker's candidacy into the next two showdowns in South Carolina and Nevada.
Well, if there's one thing we know about Rudy Giuliani, it's that he's a mastermind at strategizing primary victories.
Like, remember last time when he decided to forgo the first dozen or so primaries so that he could really really really focus on a big win in Florida? I'm pretty sure that worked out really well for him.
So, needless to say, I have complete faith in his brilliant machinations this time around.
