Wow, retroactive offending. Isn't the Chik-fil-A issue only a few weeks old? I think I want him as VP - especially if he can see into the future.

It’s impossible not to offend the permanently offended crowd.

Except for Allen West, which demonstrates that it's not because they're black, but because they're wacko Democrats.

Yeah sure, they were offended, but what else is new? I mean, isn’t it basically the CBC’s job to get offended?

What I’d like to know is, how many of them were so offended that they did not end up eating the Chik-Fil-A anyway? I guarantee they didn’t let all that good food wind up in the dumpster.

What offended them? Was it because it was DIFFERENT fried chicken with collard greens (this is what Hastings said) that they usually have or that Chick-Fil-A has the same belief of Traditional Marriage that their Black Pastors do?

Actually, it’s been going on for a while now. The majority of our population paid no attention until a couple of weeks ago.

Were they offended because it was grilled chicken instead of fried?

Allen West for Secretary of Defense so he can rid the Pentagon of the sissies who ran him out of the Army for saving the lives of his soldiers.

Just to be completely accurate...

"...CBC Chairman Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL), a former federal judge who had been impeached and removed from that post on charges of bribery and perjury, ..."

There - Fixed it!

It's very obvious that they're just pissed because Allen West forgot to bring some Watermelon for dessert.

Rumor has it that Allen West was also wearing a shirt made out of Cotton at the time. He is sooooo insensitive.

“Melvin said West spent about $600 on the Chick-fil-A meal and that there was “not a plate left” by the end of the meeting.”

Hipocrits!

We need more like Mr. West.

GMTA -- or, if he had brought watermelon, they would be doubly offended. As another poster noted, it's just another day of offending the perpetually offended -- SSDD, if you will.

Nice one Alan. True that Alcee was impeached and yet the people of south Florida keep sending him back. I guess they have validated his free pass to corruption.
Alcee is a BIGOT if there ever was one. I recall he voted in 2004 not to accept or recognize Ohio's electoral votes. Funny he didn't seem to have that problem in 2008.
