Allen West sworn into the Congressional Black Caucus

By Sam Foster

What more can be said except that the communist/socialists that embody the CBC are in for a quite a ride in the 112th:

The all-Democrat Congressional Black Caucus welcomed its first Republican member in 14 years on Wednesday, with the swearing-in of Representative Allen B. West of Florida.

The newly elected congressman is the first Republican to join the black lawmakers' group since Representative Gary A. Franks of Connecticut left office in 1997. The other black Republican elected to the House in November, Timothy E. Scott of South Carolina, declined to join the group.

Mr. West, a former Army lieutenant colonel who represents a swath of Florida's southeastern coast, called the group "monolithic" shortly after his election during orientation for new members on the Hill. But on Sunday, he said he hoped to bring "intellectual debate and discourse" to the caucus.

"I think that there are different voices that are coming out of the black community," he said in an interview on "Fox News Sunday." "You had 42 blacks that ran on the Republican ticket this cycle. Fourteen of them made it to the general election and two of us made it to the House of Representatives. So I think that there is a new movement that needs to have a voice in the Congressional Black Caucus."

Before you know it, people will start remembering that Martin Luther King was a Republican and that it was Republican's that fought a civil war to end slavery, etc…

Essentially, the end of US politics as we know it and good riddance!

  1. I went to go visit his office today. He is neighbors with Steny Hoyer and Chris Van Hollen. I find that an interesting neighborhood. I bet they won't be exchanging recipes anytime soon.
