Tea Party darling Rep. Allen West (R-FL) is the gift that keeps on giving. Too bad the Democrats didn’t have a viable candidate to have beaten this idiot in the elections and now we are stuck with this fool for a while. He recently met with the Sun Sentinel’s editorial board and made an asinine comment comparing gays to chocolate chip ice cream and riding scooters. He’s now saying his comments were taken out of context. You be the judge:
Should gay people change their behavior and not be gay?
“Oh, Tony, come on — no, I don’t think that. You know, I like chocolate chip ice cream, and I will continue to like chocolate chip ice cream. So there’s no worry about me changing to vanilla. I like to, you know, ride my motorcycle. What do you want me to do? You want me to change my behavior and ride a scooter? I’m not into that. Source
What he could have simply said was “I have no comment” or “I want to talk about the issues facing Americans today.” Simple.
