If Rep. Allen West were to ask me to follow him and storm the Gates of Hell I would do so willingly. Yes he reversed himself in the last debate in Congress on the debt ceiling, but Ronald Reagan also made mistakes while in office.
I can forgive Rep. West for that mistake. Especially after what he did now.
The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations sent a letter to Rep. Allen West at the beginning of the month with a request -- quit palling around with Islamophobes.
The letter, from CAIR South Florida Executive Director Nezar Hamze, specifically asked West to cut his ties with Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, Joe Kaufman, and Joyce Kaufman, among others.
In classic Allen West elegance, he responded to the letter -- under his official congressional letterhead -- with one word: "NUTS!"
Check out the letter in its entirety:
Hamze tells the Pulp he thinks West's use of "NUTS!" is likely a reference to the phrase of World War II lore, which translates to "go to hell."Each day I find myself admiring this man more and more. It is a shame that he isn't running for President. Not only would he be a welcomed breath of fresh air, but he would kick Sheik Obama's ass back to Chicago.
Hamze's official response: "Allen West continues his baseless rhetoric and schoolboy insults."
