Quote of the Day

"You are the most vile, unprofessional, and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. ... You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!"Republican Congressman Allen West (Florida), in an email to Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who deigned to criticize on the House floor his support for the craptacular "Cut, Cap, and Balance" legislation to raise the debt ceiling.

Her criticism? Facts.
"The gentleman from Florida. who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan that would increase costs for Medicare beneficiaries, unbelievable from a Member from South Florida," Wasserman Schultz said, saying the legislation "slashes Medicaid and critical investments essential to winning the future in favor of protecting tax breaks for Big Oil, millionaires, and companies who ship American jobs overseas."
Someone please introduce Congressman West to the phrase "disproportionate response."
