No Regrets

Views

It’s going to be fun to watch the compromises that the new tea partiers in Congress are going to have to make. Make that “compromises.” Today Rep. Allen West (R-FL) announced “with deep regret” that local radio host Joyce Kaufman — who’s incendiary statements included calling Nancy Pelosi “garbage” — will not serve as his chief of staff after all.

For her part, Kaufman told her radio audience that the controversy is an “electronic lynching by proxy.” West is African American.
