Scuzzbucket of the Week

That would be Representative Allen West of Florida

Will the race card ever go away? I think not because of people like Mr. West and redneck white people.

The reason I'm choosing Allen as the Scuzzbucket of the week (1st in a long time, I know. I've been busy wasting time on FB) is because of this article regarding his bid for re-election as a Congressman in the Sunshine State. Here's what old Allen has to say about his white, female opponent:

"She's a career politician looking for her next gig," he said. "Maybe she likes running against black guys," he added, referring to a 1992 Democratic primary which she lost against Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.). Frankel, the former mayor of West Palm Beach, is running in the Democratic primary along with Patrick Murphy to oppose West.

Hope he loses.
