As a rule, its generally best to take Allen West about as seriously as one might take Sarah Palin. They both served all of two years in elected office; theyre both foolish caricatures; and they both tend to say deliberately ridiculous things as part of a sad attempt at attention.
But once in a great while, West crosses a line of decency thats more difficult to ignore. Yesterday offered just such an example.
Fox News contributor Allen West questioned the loyalties of decorated veteran and Illinois Rep. Tammy Duckworth for serving with her fellow Democrats on the Benghazi select committee.
West attacked the recently announced Democratic members of the newly formed committee for dismissing the importance of Benghazi during an appearance on the May 21 broadcast of The Janet Mefferd Show.
West remarked of Duckworth: I just dont know where her loyalties lie. You know, for her to have been a veteran, a wounded warrior for the United States Army, she should know that this is not the right thing.
In this case, the right thing is serving on a select committee, created by House Republicans, to investigate the deadly 2012 attacks on the U.S. outpost in Benghazi, Libya.

John Kerry is a sterling example of a decorated combat veteran whose nonpartisanship and loyalties to the interests of the US and its military should never be questioned (SARC)
as if Duckworth or any other democrat is ever going to find obama or clinton responsible for any leadership failures at Benghazi...
Gees I wonder what this clown thinks of Pelosi, Reed, Grayson, Lee or, actually, any of the current crop elected Democrats.
For MSNBC to claim that a person is a
“foolish caricature” is a compliment of the highest order.....
Think of the minds of its 150,000 viewers it may corrupt :-)
You can’t criticize someone if they’re an amputee?
She’s also anti-second amendment, so obviously doesn’t support constitutional law.
Duckworth is loyal to the Chicago Machine that chose her as a candidate and got her elected.
Benedict Arnold was a war hero too....if it wasn’t for his victory at Saratoga, America might not be a country. That said, that little “episode” in 1780 should still count against him.
Allen West and Sarah Palin “both served all of two years in elected office; theyre both foolish caricatures; and they both tend to say deliberately ridiculous things as part of a sad attempt at attention.” They are also apparently not Americans according to Howard Dean: This country has been sold down the river for their own purposes! This is a Republican party that has decided they like power so much that they think its OK to win by taking away the right to vote! They are not American! They would be more comfortable in the Ukraine, or Russia, but stay away from our country!
MSLSD is clearly racist.
I absolutely understand where Lt. Col. Allen West is coming from — How can Tammy Duckworth, a veteran who has served and fought and was disabled fighting for this country stand on the side of the country that so loathes the military and everything we have stood for and continue to stand for. The same party that is capable of producing this drivel; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sq30lapbC9c
So essentially it is baby Alex that has grown up to be pajama boy...
Well, the Left has certainly run out of stories with that one, haven’t they?
The more you read, the more you see the obvious logic to Alan West’s question. Who wouldn’t scratch their head over Duckworth’s deliberate Benghazi avoidance behavior?
Marxists have their own playbook regardless of the facts and their own real experiences to the contrary.
The inscription referrs to the hero of Saratoga without whom the war might have been lost.
