Even though he lost his reelection, no one ever really thought Allen West would go quietly, and true to form, he's going out kicking and screaming like the sore loser that he is.
Think Progress reports that he appeared on Mark Levin's radio show last week, and claimed that the reason he lost was because his opponent Patrick Murphy cheated:
LEVIN: You are a national treasure. You are way too important to have something like this to happen and off you go. That can’t happen. So I’m really curious to know. Do you have further public service in mind, potentially?
WEST: The most important thing everyone has to understand is my voice is not going to be lost. We’ve gotten a lot of opportunities, a lot of offers, and we’re going to make sure we continue to have that platform. [...] I’m a warrior and I’m a statesman and I’m a servant of this republic. I’m not going away just because of a congressional race where he seems to have to cheat to beat me.
LEVIN: He sure as hell did. It’s disgusting.
Murphy had to cheat to beat him? Sure, that's what happened. It had nothing to do with the fact that West campaigned as a Tea Party loyalist, but sold out his base soon after arriving in Washington, or the fact that he rode in, and out of D.C. on the crazy train, and quite possibly was at the controls.
Also, if he lost because Murphy "cheated" as West claims, then why hasn't West proven this? After all, he's never been one to back down before when he thinks he's been wronged by someone else. There's always been a rapid and terse response when anyone so much as criticized him in the past. But cheating? That's another thing entirely. This is not something the Allen West we know would sit still for! Tyranny such as this must not stand!
So what gives, soon to be former Rep. "Steadfast and Loyal?" Where's the proof that you were cheated? Could it be there is none, and you're just too much of a sore loser to admit defeat? Could it be that you've been (Gasp!) neutered?
Nah! That would NEVER happen......
