If that happened, we old people would take to the streets and engage in a vicious campaign of pie-flinging and gurning until our civil rights were restored.

Allan West says some things.

The conservative tea party icon also got in shots at Democrats and President Obama, who spoke Tuesday at Florida Atlantic University. West said Obama was "scared" to have a discussion with him. He later said "he's heard" up to 80 U.S. House Democrats are Communist Party members, but wouldn't name names.

At the first of two campaign town-hall events in Martin County on Tuesday, the Plantation Republican told a New Hope Fellowship Church crowd it'd be disingenuous to pretend he knows everything about the area, but said he supports local projects like inlet dredging. But he contended that big national issues, such as gas prices, turn out to be the most important locally.

"I understand everything about the (St. Lucie) Inlet. I already represent 70 to 75 miles of coastline. Plenty of inlets, plenty of ports. I got it," West said. "I understand about the (St. Lucie) river situation. I understand about (Lake) Okeechobee. But it won't mean a hill of beans if the United States of America goes from $15.6 trillion in debt to $26 trillion in debt."

Translation: "I don't know shit about your district but I can't wait to be your FOX News commentator."

I had always thought your name was some sort of vowel joke I didn't get, like "seven ate nine!" but with letters.

not general election, but i just got an email from the e. warren campaign that she walloped scott brown in Q1 fundraising (though his bankroll is obv bigger) and she's currently leading him by about a point past margin of error

fka snush (remy bean), Thursday, 12 April 2012 14:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

are you sure it was past the margin of error?

Isn't that part of the "general" election? The presidential election is the name of the big bore.

I don't care either way if someone wants to start one

iatee, Thursday, 12 April 2012 14:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

i really like the campaign she's running - she's putting the screws to brown w/o coming off as especially petty. the grassroots fundraising and organization are really top notch, taking a page from bama '08 but w/ (actually sincere) populist messages at the core. although i could have done without the 'trip to the aqaurium' email w/ her grandkids' email.

fka snush (remy bean), Thursday, 12 April 2012 15:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

she's the only candidate i've ever given $$ who doesn't rep me directly

it's smdh time in America (will), Thursday, 12 April 2012 15:04 (2 years ago) Permalink

it's a weird election for me inasmuch as i've known brown (personally) for a long, long time and respect him as a person but hate him as a politician. warren drives me bonkers as a person, but i couldn't have a higher esteem for her politically, so...

fka snush (remy bean), Thursday, 12 April 2012 15:07 (2 years ago) Permalink

interesting, how do you know him remy?

iatee, Thursday, 12 April 2012 15:08 (2 years ago) Permalink

boy scouts
selectman in my childhood hometown
we share a mechanic
met him a million times growing up
my dad and he hung out in the early '80s

fka snush (remy bean), Thursday, 12 April 2012 15:11 (2 years ago) Permalink

do you think your mechanic is the type of person who can 'make mistakes' for the right amount of money?

iatee, Thursday, 12 April 2012 15:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

i probably don't have the right amount of money, unless it's fallen under the driver's seat. plus, i really like him! he gave me a banana split one time (not a sex joke) and i think he drove me home from soccer practice. elizabeth warren came into a store i worked in ca. .09 and ordered very complicated business cards at two minutes past closing time.

fka snush (remy bean), Thursday, 12 April 2012 15:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

is that the sum total of "drives me bonkers as a person"?

World Congress of Itch (Dr Morbius), Thursday, 12 April 2012 15:24 (2 years ago) Permalink

Not all of it. Her affect is sometimes haughty Cambridgey-Fancy-Scarf-Lady, and some other times a little transparently calculated. But, as I said earlier, I've got immense respect for her work, her intellect, her campaign, and I do like her brand of populism.
