[WAJ NOTE: I have been interviewed on African American Conservatives Blog Talk Radio multiple times. AACONS has a weekly podcast with some very interesting guests. AACONS will begin posting their weekly podcasts at Legal Insurrection starting, well, now!]
to CPAC, or whatever the conference happens to be.
Of course, if I went I might have been chased down the hallway by gaggles of college kids seeking to get their photos taken with me, either that, or I would have stood alone in a corner hoping it would be over soon...
Early this morning Allen West released a statement conceding the race after his attempt to obtain a full recount lost any realistic chance.
Based on his team’s analysis there were not enough disputed or suspicious votes to overcome the approximately 2000 vote lead.
As indicated yesterday from someone close to the campaign, West...
Call it a hunch, call it reading tea leaves, call it whatever you want.
With the partial recount of early ballots in St. Lucie county having increased Patrick Murphy’s lead marginally, there are not many options left to Allen West since he remains outside the automatic recount threshold.
The Shark Tank notes that...
Another court hearing is scheduled for tomorrow. Here’s the latest, according to local news reports:
As state auditors watch over the elections process in St. Lucie County through one recount, some are hoping a judge will grant a second.
A hearing has been scheduled...
A new video from the National Republican Congressional Committee.
Features two of our Operation Counterweight candidates.
I’m not sure this qualifies for the “Ever” award (I’m still partial to this), but it is a fantastic commercial.
Fantastic, and I almost put another word before that.
The Murphy response? To criticize West’s military record involving the now famous incident when he zealously interrogated a hostile.
Good luck with that, Murphy. Terrorists just...
After you have maxed out, of course, on contributing to the Allen West Congressional Black Caucus Chick-fil-A Fund.

I’m not sure on whom this reflects more poorly, Alcee Hastings (D-FL, ex-Judge, 1 of 8 fed officials ever successfully impeached, now sometimes spokesman for your Democratic Party), or HuffPo for actually reporting this nonsense.
But it’s out there, and has been picked up many places, so here you go from HuffPo’s...
I met Allen West this weekend when he was in Rhode Island.
Very impressive guy, even more so in person.
That is all.
I have mentioned before how Allen West is on the top 10 target list for Democrats this year, Dem SuperPAC targeting “Tea Party 10″.
Now a SuperPAC has been...
Not that this is very surprising.
Notice how the perp complains that conservatives are “anti-gay,” yet wants Javier Manjares of The Shark Tank to know that the perp is not gay, “I’m not a fag fucker.” (at 2:30) How enlightened.

You will remember the outrage which swept the airwaves when redistricting by the Republican legislature redistricted Allen West out of existence. There was a heated dispute whether West was targeted or just the victim of circumstance dictated by law.
West ended up switching districts.
West discussed it recently, as reported by The...
Overnight question: Since Dewhurst came close to a majority in a crowded field, what is Cruz’s path to victory in a run-off?
David Dewhurst – 44.59
Ted Cruz - 34.23
Tom Leppert – 13.33

The film Slavery By Another Name recently was released. It is a moving historical account of the post-emancipation enslavement by another name of blacks through a variety of segregationist and other laws and policies.
Unfortunately, but predictably, some used the movie release as an opportunity to score policital points against Republicans both past and present.
I posted in late January about the redistricting of Allen West by the Republican controlled Florida legislature, including reports from the Florida blog The Shark Tank (which won Best State-Level Blog at CPAC this year) that West specifically was targeted.
Republicans in control of the process denied targeting West, asserting that changes...
