Buh-Bye Allen West. Don’t let the door hit you on your onward christian soldier chanting, I’ll out bloviate Rush Limbaugh, tea bag lovin’ ass.
Why couldn’t I stand Allen West?
A) Because the majority of his “town hall” meetings were held in churches where he had a very narrow demographic audience with the lowest chances of hearing a dissenting opinion?
B) Because he always toted around his helmet bag to remind people just how “patriotic” he was?
C) Because he railed on ceaselessly about how much against big government he is while always having been employed by the same government or having worked for someone under a government contract?
D) Because he never met jingoistic rhetoric he didn’t like and spewed it every time he spied a microphone near him?
E) Because when the incoming freshman republicans put on their show of reading the constitution out loud in congress he showed up for his part, read it out loud and promptly turned heel and left, showing exactly what his new seat and his constituents really meant to him?
F) All of the above.
Hey, he served his country as did generations of his family before him. So I give him credit where credit is due. His family probably even loves him.
He is the epitome of what is wrong with brainwashed right wing demagoguery.
Now he’ll probably get a job with Fox. (So I’ll never have to see him again)
I’m only sorry I was no longer in his district to cast one of those votes against him.
