Sarah Palin: Rep. Allen West Should Be Vice President

So it’s Super Tuesday, and I’m willing to bet that people are out and about doing what they do on Super Tuesday: voting. Today, in at least eleven states people are out voting in what may be the final vote to determine he de facto Republican presidential nominee.  I know down here in Tennessee, me voting for any one of the GOP candidates in our open primary, is like handing a pedophile thirty Viagra pills with his Chuck E. Cheese tokens; yep, I’m not an enabler. Speaking of enabling the stupid, have you heard that one of my favorite slave-catchers’ name is getting some Vice President buzz?

Accoirding to Politico:

Rep. Allen West said Tuesday he is “always willing and ready to serve my country” when asked about a potential vice presidential bid — a job Sarah Palin recently said he should be considered for.

“As far as the vice president thing, you know, who knows what the future lies because it wasn’t too long ago, you know, I was sitting in the desert of Kandahar, Afghanistan, and now I’m here talking with you,” the Florida Republican told CNN’s Soledad O’Brien. “But, you know, I am always willing and ready to serve my country in whatever capacity that the American people would desire.”

On Saturday, Palin told Fox News the eventual Republican presidential nominee should look at West as a possible running mate.

“You know who I’d like to see considered for the VP slot is Colonel Allen West,” Palin said. “In this very tumultuous time across our world, someone who has served in our military or at least has intimate knowledge of the way the military works and should work, perhaps by having a close family member serve, someone like that — like Colonel Allen West, who went to the school of hard knocks. He should be one who should be considered seriously for VP.”

West also addressed Sen. Marco Rubio as a possible vice presidential pick, saying that the Florida Republican is “someone who brings a new and vibrant energy to the GOP and also to the race. And I think he has a great vision for this country as well.”

I swear, these Republicans sure have a lot of love for their Blacks, don’t they? Aww c’mon; shit,  they don’t give a damn about Allen West. Hell, if they did actually care about his political influence and future, why then did they pretty much draw him out of the equation via redistricting?

West as you might know, is a Tea party darling; as such, he has been one of the most vocal defenders against claims of racism by opponents of the Tea Party. Last summer West created a media firestorm by likening members of the Congressional Black Caucus to slaves trapped on a plantation. Not surprisingly, this is the same Allen West who recently suggested that president Obama should “get the hell out of the United States of America!” Welp, I’m not sure what Sarah Palin is thinking, but it doesn’t look like the GOP even cares about his Black ass representing them in Congress hence him being a victim to good ol’ Republican gerrymandering. But seriously, not even Palin would put him on her ticket if she were the nominee.
