Booker Rising yesterday reported that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) recently commented that the Democrats defeating Rep. Allen West's re-election bid "would be sweet for the country". Well, you know that the conservative Republican Congressman wasn't gonna stay silent. From the South Florida Sun-Sentinel: " West responded after a meeting with residents at Ocean Palms Retirement Community in Stuart. 'When I win, I can’t wait to send her a five pound bag of sugar. And it will be local, Florida grown,' he said."
