There is a time for diplomatic talk and there is a time for blunt talk. Allen West is a blunt talking person

Via NiceDeb. It’s amazing how quickly supporters of radical Islam wilts when someone actually knows history.

Last year I saw Col West at the Pam Geller event, this year he was the Keynote Speaker, but before he gave his keynote he visited bloggers row. (Maureen Dowd was not invited)

There were a lot of people in that room who would love to see this man on a national ticket sometime soon.

update: …particularly if he keeps saying stuff like this.

When I see this I just laugh:

The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) is staying silent about a Tea Party Republican’s bid to join the group.

Rep.-elect Allen West (R-Fla.) indicated last week he intends to join the CBC to challenge the group’s “monolithic voice.”

Staying silent. Say WHAT? It is the Congressional Black Congress, not the Congressional Black Democratic Caucus or the Congressional Black Liberal Caucus. This should be a no brainer shouldn’t it?

A CBC spokesperson on Monday declined to comment on West’s bid.

Bid? BID! What it this an eBay auction?

This would be gift #4 for republicans of the month. I can’t imagine the caucus would be this foolish. Can you imagine what must go on in those meetings that is so embarrassing that they don’t dare let a republican hear it?

Update: I guess they figured it out. DaTechGuy get results!

The Congressional Black Caucus says it will allow two recently elected black Republicans to join the group if they ask.

The all-Democratic caucus had wavered over the issue since Tim Scott of South Carolina and Allen West of Florida were elected last week. Chairwoman Barbara Lee had pointed to the group’s liberal mission statement as a potential point of conflict.

But in a statement Tuesday, the group said the two would be welcomed if they request membership.

Another barrier falls, Huzzah!

Moron Morning Joe today Ron Paul and Joe took turns hitting the Republicans over the head saying there was no difference. Paul Suggested we needed “new blood” in congress. Gee Where can the Republicans find it:

Maybe if the show had gone to CPAC they might have met people like Rick Barber

and Col Allen West.

Somehow they missed Les Phillip

and couldn’t find Katherine Jenerette.

They haven’t interviewed Patrick Murray

Or the incredible Patricia Sullivan:

Some guy with a Fedora managed to find this new blood out there. With a little effort Joe and Mika could do so too. Hey Joe for $1k a week plus travel I’ll do it for you!

Update: Smitty finds another Diamond named Christine O’Donnell. Another one that hasn’t made the show yet. Oh and btw The “moron” at the start of the post believe it or not, was a typo. I didn’t notice it till I got ready to put on this update but rather than just pull it I figured I’d use a strike since it was up for a while and I don’t want to duck the error since it was pejorative.
