The Congressman Is a Master and Commander

Wow. This video reminds me once again why so many of us have such high hopes for Allen West. The way his mind works, the way he holds himself, the way he expresses things — all are amazing to behold.

Via Weasel Zippers, a clip from the House Armed Services Committee hearing on the implementation of the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”:

Out of all the dignitaries in that room, which one exudes the most self-possession and strength? Which one inspires the most confidence?



  1. So impressive – and SO in charge!! He used excellent and easily-understood examples of basic militart standards that even this idiot colleagues in the House could understand!! And he probably could have emphasized even more the importance of NOT silencing or derailing a genuinely concerned so-called “whistle-blower!” Bringing up the surreal set of circumstances that allowed a jihadist like Col Hasan to slip through the cracks and NOT be expelled (at the VERY least!) from the Army, was a vivd exampled of PC – and I hope those military brass sitting in front of him let those words sink in!!

  2. Oops, “haste makes waste!” That SHOULD read, “…even HIS idiot colleagues!”

  3. Lets get LTC Allen West to Run for President!!!!
