Moral of the story: Don't bring a scimitar to a gunfight

One of the rising stars of the Republican Congress is freshman representative Allen West of Florida. West was a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army who made a name for himself in Iraq when he, shall we say, intensely interviewed an al-Qaeda suspect in order to obtain the information to head off an attack that would have killed numerous American soldiers.

This video, which was taken at a town hall meeting in West's Florida district shows why LTC/Rep. West is indeed a rising star. Watch as he dismantles a representative of CAIR, the Council on American/Islamic Relations who thinks West is being too hard on the Islamic religion. I thought my recall of history was good; watch and listen to what West does to make his case:

Hmmm, that takedown was so easy, it reminded me of this scene right here:

"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free... it expects what never was, and never will be." -Thomas Jefferson
