This is how you do it

For those who follow American politics, an email from Congressman Alan West to Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Chair of Democratic National Committee, i.e. the boss of the Democratic Party.

From: Z112 West, Allen 
Sent: Tuesday, July 19, 2011 04:48 PM
To: Wasserman Schultz, Debbie 
Cc: McCarthy, Kevin; Blyth, Jonathan; Pelosi, Nancy; Cantor, Eric 
Subject: Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman-Schultz 

Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional ,and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!

I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.

You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!

Steadfast and Loyal

Congressman Allen B West (R-FL)

Go for it boy.

What impresses the heck out of me, is, heck, even in his rage he restricts himself to saying, well heck, “heck”.

Good for him.

    Ah, but the beauty of it is that everyone reading it knows what word “heck” is standing in for.

  2. Lynne says:

    It needed to be said. It needs to be said a heck of a lot more. It needs to be said over here and in Australia too. Over and over again until “they” get the message.

    Having followed the link I see that the US has it’s own particularly virulent brand of CiFalitics…

    “What impresses the heck out of me, is, heck, even in his rage he restricts himself to saying, well heck, “heck”.”

    He clearly has personal standards, something often conspicuously lacking in the Left…

  4. Paul Marks says:

    The left do what they do (such as the vile antics against Colonel West and his family in 2010) because there are no bad consequences for them – Republicans just respond by being shocked and confused (rabbit-in-headlights….).

    Colonel West is not that kind of person.

  5. Adam Collyer says:

    I bet it didn’t say “heck” when he wrote the first draft!
