Totally not-insane Rep. Allen West greeting visitors to his office

-Headline of the Day-
"West: Wasserman Schultz And Dems Attack Me Because I’m A Black Conservative."

When Allen West let his rage get away from him, it got him into a little hot water. After Debbie Wasserman Schultz said she didn't like the way West voted, West fired off an email that stopped just short of accusing her of being the Whore of Babylon. I guess because he's a thin-skinned prick or something. Really Al, if you want nothing but praise, you really picked the wrong profession.

Anyhoo, West's email struck a lot of people as pretty sexist (how would he have responded if Schultz wrote to tell him he proved he wasn't a man?) and now a bunch of Democratic women are demanding his apology.

Well, that's not going to happen. See, these commie whores -- including this one and this one -- are just being racist. They're mad because a black man had the guts to leave the liberal "21st-century plantation" -- whatever the hell that's supposed to mean (conservatives really seem to like inapt slavery metaphors).

"The thing that really most aggravates me is that there is this double standard, in that the people on the hard left can continue to attack conservatives and especially minority conservatives, and female conservatives," said West. "But yet when all of a sudden you stand up and you say that you will not tolerate this anymore, then they claim to be a victim -- which I find just absolutely laughable."

This strikes me as an odd statement to make while you're playing both the victim and the race cards. (Talking Points Memo)

The thing about starving people is that, if you ignore them, they really will go away. (MarkFiore.com)

-Headline of the Day-
"Fox Host: Free Birth Control Is Liberal Conspiracy To 'Eradicate The Poor.'"

Kinda, yeah. If people aren't having kids that they can't afford, a lot fewer of them will wind up in poverty.

Explain to me again how that's a bad thing? (ThinkProgress, with video)
