Just a reminder: Rep. Allen West is a multiple independently targeted re-entry vehicle of creepily weird lunatic petulant buffoonery aimed at everyone in his vicinity but most of all himself

Allen West tirade: Wasserman Schultz ‘vile…despicable…not a Lady’ – Ben Smith – POLITICO.com

Cc: McCarthy, Kevin; Blyth, Jonathan; Pelosi, Nancy; Cantor, Eric
Subject: Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman-Schultz

Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional ,and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!

I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.

You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!

Steadfast and Loyal

Congressman Allen B West (R-FL)

  1. If I were West, I would move so that i no longer lived in Wasserman-Schultz’s district. I wouldn’t want her representing me.

    Either that or maybe consider not voting for her when she comes up for re-election. She just doesn’t deserve his Loyalty.

  2. @ miguel cervantes:

    Coulda sworn from what I read from Smith that West’s living in her district and representing a neighboring one.

    So West’s prolly supercynical (as well as nuking futs.)

  3. Well that’s what happens when you rely on Smith, the point is her Rosanna Danna screeds,have a higher profile since she is the DNC’s
    favorite parrot.

  4. @ miguel cervantes:

    are you able to supply exact co-ordinates for West’s house?

    (time he’s most likely to be there very helpful, as well)

    Don’t have any familiarity with the lady but didn’t hear anything outrageous from her in questioning whether West is serving the (old) people of Florida with his stance on the bill being discussed.

    She didn’t sound like a supergenius but West’s response, while stopping short of saying that he was gonna kill her and piss on her corpse, was just a hair excessive

    Shut the fuheck up?

  5. @ fuster:
    This is one of the reasons, or a dimension of the reason, that the Right currently qualifies as unsalvageable. Someone find a movement conservative who has anything but praise or, at worst, contorted justifications for West’s dishonorable, embarrassing, and altogether deranged conduct – the kind of thing that makes Alan Grayson look reflective and restrained. (At least Grayson didn’t assault his colleagues individually in such excessive terms.) Check out this contortive hackery from HA’s latest addition to the gallery: http://hotair.com/archives/2011/07/20/debbie-wasserman-schultz-dismisses-allen-wests-searing-e-mail/ I think if you read between the lines – but you have to do so – it’s clear that the writer thinks that West is one half ass, one half deranged, but there’s no way she’s going to say as much in front of a right-wing crowd.

  6. Maybe your more familiar with the writer (Tina Korbe) than am I.

    I’m not finding anything all that clear about her feelings toward West.

    I do find it clear that she’s not harboring any great respect for Debbie

    Wouldn’t much surprise me if DW-S ain’t nothing to write home about. I’m willing to trade Florida back to Spain in return for an unlimited supply of Paella Valenciana, Pollo Villaroy & Gambas al Ajillo

  7. Look they picked Bloomberg, and they were seriously looking at Weiner, so I don’t give much hope, to get it right.

Noted & Quoted

TV pundits and op-ed writers of every major newspaper epitomize how the Democratic establishment has already reached a consensus: the 2020 nominee must be a centrist, a Joe Biden, Cory Booker or Kamala Harris–type, preferably. They say that Joe Biden should "run because [his] populist image fits the Democrats’ most successful political strategy of the past generation" (David Leonhardt, New York Times), and though Biden "would be far from an ideal president," he "looks most like the person who could beat Trump" (David Ignatius, Washington Post). Likewise, the same elite pundit class is working overtime to torpedo left-Democratic candidates like Sanders.

For someone who was not acquainted with Piketty's paper, the argument for a centrist Democrat might sound compelling. If the country has tilted to the right, should we elect a candidate closer to the middle than the fringe? If the electorate resembles a left-to-right line, and each voter has a bracketed range of acceptability in which they vote, this would make perfect sense. The only problem is that it doesn't work like that, as Piketty shows.

The reason is that nominating centrist Democrats who don't speak to class issues will result in a great swathe of voters simply not voting. Conversely, right-wing candidates who speak to class issues, but who do so by harnessing a false consciousness — i.e. blaming immigrants and minorities for capitalism's ills, rather than capitalists — will win those same voters who would have voted for a more class-conscious left candidate. Piketty calls this a "bifurcated" voting situation, meaning many voters will connect either with far-right xenophobic nationalists or left-egalitarian internationalists, but perhaps nothing in-between.

Understanding Trump’s charisma offers important clues to understanding the problems that the Democrats need to address. Most important, the Democratic candidate must convey a sense that he or she will fulfil the promise of 2008: not piecemeal reform but a genuine, full-scale change in America’s way of thinking. It’s also crucial to recognise that, like Britain, America is at a turning point and must go in one direction or another. Finally, the candidate must speak to Americans’ sense of self-respect linked to social justice and inclusion. While Weber’s analysis of charisma arose from the German situation, it has special relevance to the United States of America, the first mass democracy, whose Constitution invented the institution of the presidency as a recognition of the indispensable role that unique individuals play in history.

[E]ven Fox didn’t tout Bartiromo’s big scoops on Trump’s legislative agenda, because 10 months into the Trump presidency, nobody is so foolish as to believe that him saying, “We’re doing a big infrastructure bill,” means that the Trump administration is, in fact, doing a big infrastructure bill. The president just mouths off at turns ignorantly and dishonestly, and nobody pays much attention to it unless he says something unusually inflammatory.On some level, it’s a little bit funny. On another level, Puerto Rico is still languishing in the dark without power (and in many cases without safe drinking water) with no end in sight. Trump is less popular at this point in his administration than any previous president despite a generally benign economic climate, and shows no sign of changing course. Perhaps it will all work out for the best, and someday we’ll look back and chuckle about the time when we had a president who didn’t know anything about anything that was happening and could never be counted on to make coherent, factual statements on any subject. But traditionally, we haven’t elected presidents like that — for what have always seemed like pretty good reasons — and the risks of compounding disaster are still very much out there.
