IN QUOTES

Anti-Gay Tea Partier Allen West Finally Concedes Florida Election

For two weeks since Election Day, we have been working to ensure every vote is counted accurately and fairly. We have made progress towards that goal, thanks to the dedication of our supporters and their unrelenting efforts to protect the integrity of the democratic process. While many questions remain unanswered, today I am announcing that I will take no further action to contest the outcome of this election.”

—  Republican rabble-rouser Allen West throws in the towel after a futile attempt at dragging out his race for the US House of Representatives against Democrat Patrick Murphy in a statement to Politico.

    As an Shouth African, I know just the right medication for him! call ” APARTHEID” It`s worked before.

    The legacy of Allen West is the extreme demonization of his opposition and his desire to become a modern day Joseph McCarthy.

    At the very least, with Patrick Murphy gaining the seat, some sense of civility returns to the political arena.

    Have no fear though, Mr. West, hateful rhetoric can earn you a lot of money at any number of right-wing events. And a whole new television network awaits you. Or who knows, maybe Rush, or the Donald, could use a sidekick.

    Allen West gives off gay vapors. Latent, self-hating man trying to prove something to the world. Good bye. Work out your conflicts in some other altered state, hater.

    @Karuadam, since when did Apartheid work? And whom did it work for?
