Alan West, the king of useful idiots in the newly hobbled and crippled Republican party was offered support and safe haven by Sue Everhart, chairwoman of the Georgia GOP, (Huffington Post 11/14/12) “I would be glad to have him come back to Georgia and at some point run here,” Everhart told the Journal-Constitution. “I would certainly try to help him because he has done his job. The way he ran his race didn’t in any way interfere with the job he did. He ran as a Republican, a conservative Republican.”
Well If she really wants to help Mr.West (no longer Representative West) she could convince him to concede his campaign for Congress and join the rest us that live on this planet, in this America and not a conservative fantasy world.
But when I really start to think of it. Who better to carry the standard of the GOP then a man who not only creates but lives in his own reality. Like a punch drunk fighter that has hung on too long. Mr West refuses not only to accept a re-count of votes but also the will of the people of Florida. This is not only comical and outrageous but completely Un-American and a violation of his Congressional oath.
I do understand the Right’s love affair with West. An African American, Tea Party loving, race baiting Republican is hard to come by. It’s hard to find someone that will sell out their own citizens and do it with a stylish stupidity that would make Sarah Palin blush. Every racist needs a Black friend. Without someone like West racist GOP members couldn’t utter the age old gem of “I’m not racist but…” In the unblinking, unapologetic manner that you can find any hour of the day on Fox News.
So Alan West serves a really useful purpose. I hope he doesn’t win any more elections anywhere in America but I really wish him well. And I’m hopeful he will take up Sue Everhart’s offer and take his show to Georgia to provide me with more comedy. But this time he will be the butt of the joke and not our democracy. Any port in a storm I guess.
