What Allen West Would Tell the U.N.


West: Can he hold on in a new district?(J. Scott Applewhite/AP)

Rep. Allen West, in a Facebook post on how displeased he was with President Barack Obama's address today to the United Nations General Assembly, described what he would have said instead. And lemme tell ya, West conjured up quite the image:

My statement to the United Nations would have been, "The future does not belong to those who attack our Embassies and Consulates and kill our Ambassadors. The Angel of Death in the form of an American Bald Eagle will visit you and wreak havoc and destruction upon your existence."

Now, we all know that West isn't one to, well, mince words. But "Angel of Death in the form of an American Bald Eagle?" That's definitely a contender for the top 10 Allen Westisms.
