He also says to her: "You are not a lady". Judging by his tirade, are we supposed to believe that Allen West is a gentleman?

Perhaps even more shocking is that some conservatives and Republicans are cheering him on. Is that really the type of behavior they want to see more of? It's uncivil, to put it mildly.

When people start slinging mud at each other, what do you expect? I'd be surprise that either side would be supportive of either one even though she technically did START the whole thing...

if you read between the lines, there is a lot of "I hate you *****" language in his email...the war between these two in Palm Beach and Broward Counties in Florida is very entertaining, but Wasserman-Schultz was correct....

how can West, who is supported by an overwhelming majority of retirees who are dependent upon social security and medicare, vote to take away a major lifeline of his consitiuents in "geritolville", aka, south florida? I seem to remember a number of these elderly tea party folks want hands off their socialized payments and health care, but cut out everything else.

furthermore, if West was packing heat, he probably would have pulled it out and shot at Wesserman-Schultz just like he did to the iraqi prisoner when he was "interogatting" him in iraq when he was in army

I thought her remarks were pretty petty and she definitely had some animosity for him. But then then he one upped her in an unprofessional and immature response. With clowns like these and that stupid ignorant Sheila Jackson Lee who called all republicans racists, no wonder congress is viewed as a complete failure by the american people.

In my experience, women who go by maiden-married name combinations are the biggest douch hags on the planet. I can't think of a single one that i've encountered that didn't deserve the same treatment that West gave this one. The narcissism usually translates into a sorry excuse for a woman, and i'm not sure why that is.

I can think of 4 right off the top of my head in the public arena:

1) Hillary Rodham Clinton
2) Theresa Heinz Kerry
3) Sheila Jackson Lee
4) Debbie Wasserman Shultz

Worthless. All of them. And there are MANY more just like them.

Also include Barbara 'don't call me ma'm' boxerwho then let it slide when arguing on tv with a black 'better business' leader.

and.....

Nancy 'the gift that keeps on giving' Pelosi has provided so much ammunition for her detractors, which should be everyone outside an insane asylum or her gerrymandered voting district.

Henceforth this shall be known as the Shelia Jackson Lee era.

DWS went to the same school of extreme annoyance as Nancy.
there is a difference between intelligent focus and having earned a reputation for the queen annoying, offensive and dominating ignorance.

who cares if he's a gentleman? it's politics, and "Debbie Wasserman-Schultz" went on the attack.

I have the same negative reaction towards hypenated last names. It basically says they are feminist, and feminism is just a socially-accepted form of bigotry and female supremacy, based on the assumption that a "patriarchy" exists.

Most Seniors don't need social security and plenty of them don't want to pay for Medicare.

Also, lay off of our military - bleeding heart "Don't kill a minnow" Liberal - Wasserman Schultz is a screaming redistributionist. Her paycheck is a total waste of taxpayer money.
