  1. Another one-term wonder, much like Ms. Palin before him, repurposed for the Cro-Magnon viewers of Faux News. Who will be next to join ... Ben Quayle?

  3. Allen West was gerrymandered by his own party because they couldn't stand him.

  4. Roger Aisles is putting together a retirement home for failed lunatics. He's on a quest to create an environment where he himself feels comparatively sane. West is going to be a prized jester at the court of King Roger.

  5. Allen West is an outstanding addition to the Faux Noise "foolish-and-bigoted" lineup of talking dunder heads. It's truly a marriage made in extremist right wing heaven.

  6. It makes perfect sense that a network of fictional programming would hire a deadbrain anti-reality talking head. He'd fit right into the propaganda machine.

  9. I hope they save a spot for Michelle Bachmann! She and Allen could co-host a show called Crazy on Crazy. FOX, that place called heaven for failed right-wingnuts.

  10. Well, he'll improve their credibility, won't he? Roger Ailes' nickname: Oopsie!

  13. PERFECT! NOW I will never hear from him because he has joined the lunatic channel which is NEVER viewed in our house.

  14. The perfect fit. He is soooo far off the deep end, a trait that Fake News carries as well.

  15. Appropriate.

  16. Great. Now he has another venue in which to spew his ignorant poison. I look forward to his downfall.

  17. Hold up!
    He doesn't believe in anti-gay workplace discrimination but fired someone for retweeting a gay-positive tweet?

  18. This A$$HOLE is just where he belongs.

  19. Well , it won't do anyone harm to have another clown in that loony bin , will it ?

    Who's next ? Michelle ? Perhaps a segment of fine orgasmic praying like the one she did days ago ? I see potential in that , and if the comic books are right , one day she might just gather enough energy from her cultists to transform into .... something ?
