Allen West: Ding Dong The Warlock is gone. By Geniusofdespair

It is official Patrick Murphy has been declared the winner over Allen West, NBC called it according to Huffington Post:
"Among his more memorable comments, West called fellow Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) "vile" and "not a lady," said that more than 80 House Democrats are Communist Party members, compared being gay to liking chocolate chip ice cream, and said two times that Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels would "truly be proud" of the current Democratic Party.

Wasserman Schultz later told HuffPost that voters all over the country, including those in West's district, sent a strong message on Tuesday that they want people to work together in Washington. "In races across the country, the West-Murphy race included, the voters rejected extremism," Wasserman Schultz said."

What did West raise? A gazillion dollars? Money doesn't always work, especially from out of State. Now this one makes me VERY happy. Michelle Bachmann's win doesn't feel quite as bad with this West loss. West lost by .78% which avoids the automatic recount at .5%. Bye bye Allen!

You are very gracious in celebrating your candidate's victory. It would have been easy to gloat. I am glad you're not like that.

Thank The Deity of Your Choice! I can be a little tiny bit less ashamed of being from S. Florida, now if only we could do something about that mayor and governor we'd really be getting somewhere.

As Fred Sanford used to say, "Don't let the door knob hit ya where the good Lord split ya".
Now take your bullying arse back to oblivion, West.

Expect Allen West to cop a cushy job at Fox News as a red meat commentator. Maybe he can have the job that I predict that Sarah Palin will be vacating. From there, he can plot and plan his comeback. (He'd best be careful, though. A congressman can't be sued for defamation over what's said on the House floor or in committee. No such protection on Fox News.)

Not going to gloat on the Obama win, but West, he is fair game. He shouldn't have been elected in the first place. I celebrate this loss and I think most thinking Republicans celebrate it as well. Murphy is not my candidate...this race boiled down to it should be anyone but West...like it should be anyone but David Rivera.

I wonder where Rivera will end up. He certainly will show his face somewhere. Will it be back in the FL Leg? Or will he run locally for something like County Commissioner? Or worst yet, a lobbyist.

Debbie Wasserman Shultz lecturing Allen West on extremist is like the pot calling the kettle black.
