Oh, good heavens, what has powerful nutball Allen West gotten himself into today? Something insane? Something creepy, perhaps? ALL OF THEM. Representative West, an actual elected official with hands on the levers of government, loves fellow representative Paul Ryan’s proposed budget plan SO FUCKING MUCH that even questioning that love is a “suicide mission” that may give you permanent deadness. Which, what? We could understand getting intemperately het up about Paul Ryan’s very serious and dreamy Jimmy Stewart-blue eyes, as this is a condition an estimated 76 percent of media personalities suffer from. But the budget plan itself? Uhhhh, why don’t you go ahead and put it back in your pants, Congressman?
This may be a violation of Facebook’s Terms of Service:
West posted on his Facebook page that he is proud to endorse the budget proposal put forward this week by House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.).
“Anyone challenging me on my support to this visionary plan to restore our economic security will be signing up for a suicide mission,” wrote West, a 22-year Army veteran who served in Operations Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom. “My recommendation to any detractors, read Proverbs 17:28 and heed its advice. It is time for those who understand how to govern, not demagogue.”
Oh, goodie, the Bible’s involved! What does the Good Book say, HuffPo?
“Even a fool is thought wise if he keeps silent, and discerning if he holds his tongue.”
Damn, thought it would be a bit more fiery and brimstone-y. That actually sounds like good counsel to mouth-poopers like Allen West. Although, maybe he is just planning one of those “fake” executions that got him court-martialed? Who knows, it could be fun! [HuffPo]
