U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., seems to be channeling a dead U.S. senator from Wisconsin. From the Palm Beach Post’s report on a meeting between the congressman and supporters :
The conservative tea party icon also got in shots at Democrats and President Obama, who spoke Tuesday at Florida Atlantic University. West said Obama was “scared” to have a discussion with him. He later said “he’s heard” up to 80 U.S. House Democrats are Communist Party members, but wouldn’t name names.
Somebody hand this man a history book.
