Patrick Murphy Campaign Launches Attack Ad Against Allen West

Producing an attack ad against Rep. Allen West probably isn't the hardest thing to do, considering the amount of controversial material the congressman likes to put out on a regular basis.

Democrat Patrick Murphy has taken advantage of some of that, releasing an online video titled "Allen West's 2011 Year in Review," mostly highlighting the occasions in which West talked crap about Democrats.

It's some of the stuff you probably remember from this year -- Obama supporters are a "threat to the gene pool," Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is "the most vile, unprofessional, and despicable" member of the House, and of course, Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels would "be very proud" of Democrats.
