During a political season where you can't swing a dead cat without hitting an out-of-control, extremist Republican, Allen West, Florida's 22nd District candidate, is giving the Sharron Angles and Rand Pauls of the world a run for the crazy money.
With West's suggestion to send people to the morgue, him telling supporters to make his opponent "scared to come out of his house," his belief that bumper stickers that call for tolerance causes terrorism, and his accusation that a campaign tracker was using "Gestapo-type intimidation tactics," by videotaping him, it's hard to believe that West could seem much nuttier. He can.
Because candidate West is now providing a weekly assessment of his campaign and ... well, see if you can find where West is assessing his campaign:
From henceforth ... to unseat the inept Florida Congressman ... a sure sign of desperation ... his insidious advertisement ... no regard for working American families - certainly not any member of the Serf class who would dare challenge little Lord Ron ... it reveals how much respect this cretin has for our Military Veterans and their families ... I will take pure pleasure in defeating Klein ... the snippy little liberal chihuahuas came out to bark at my ankles ... Message to all liberals, name calling and petulant simpleton gimmicks dare not distract me from my mission; destroying the liberal progressive socialist machine and its legislative agenda ... You will find that this Conservative will parry your weak punches and deliver knockout blows. If it is a fight for America you seek, you came to the right place ... and shall find yourselves fleeing in utter desperation, same as the pathetic liberal Congressman against whom I run. I invite all of you into the arena where this intellectual Warrior awaits you on the field of combat for principles of governance and ideals.
... unless West is assessing how much of a lunatic he really is. In which case, mission accomplished.
