Allen West Racking Up the Fox News Face Time

Your local congressional candidate Allen West is Fox News' go-to guy on the treatment of suspected terrorists. He's outraged that we read them their Miranda rights -- just like Sen. George LeMieux is. That damned liberal Barack Obama isn't as "tough on terror" as a true Republican like George W. Bush whose administration gave no such pansy rights to shoe bomber Richard Reid... um... right? Oh, actually, no the Bushies read the shoe bomber his Miranda rights, too -- because that's what civilized nations do.
