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...

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...

Via Dan Riehl at Big Government, Allen West is escaping the bad redistricting and will be running in another district, in a game of musical chairs with a couple of others:

In a deal with several moving parts, Conservative favorite Rep. Allen West will move over and run in Rep. Tom Rooney’s...

I have this video posted on the Focus Page, but it’s worth bringing forward in light of the redistricting approved by Republican leadership in the Florida legislature which will make it hard for West to get reelected, and the SuperPAC formed to target West and 9 other Tea Party House members.

Update:  Mark Levin interviewed West on...

A Democratic SuperPAC just made my job of identifying House members to support as part of Operation Counterweight a whole lot easier.

The new SuperPAC will target 10 Tea Party congressmen, six of whom have been identified with four to be named, via HuffPo (h/t @JazzShaw):

The establishment is fighting back, alright.

This has not received a lot of national attention, but the Republican legislature in Florida is about to push through a plan which puts Allen West at serious risk, and the person leading the effort is one of Mitt Romney’s spokemen.  As reported by The...

It’s not often I thank Think Progress, but thanks for this video interview of Allen West on the issue of Obama foreign policy in Libya and the Middle East.  Think Progress, with its videographer following West on his trip to Israel, figured they’d get good sound bites.  And they did!

I would...

It’s going to be hard not to put him on my Top 10 for 2012, just as he was on my Top 10 list for 2010.

I can’t disagree with his comments about what’s her name, except (perhaps)...
