Rep Allen West Pens “dumbest thing ever written on congressional stationery”

According to the Miami New Times, Rep. Allen West (R-FL) penned “the dumbest thing ever written on congressional stationery” when he sent this one-word (“NUTS”) letter to a local chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR wrote to Rep West about his ties to radical anti-Islamic rabblerousers, arguing for their basic American constitutional right to be “afforded equal protection under law” and “to worship freely or participate in the governing of our society.”West has appeared on stage with Pamela Geller (cofounder of “Stop Islamization of America”) and Brigitte Gabriel (who says she voices “what many in America are thinking but afraid to say out loud, for fear of being labeled a racist, bigot, Islamophobic, or intolerant”).For my part, I suspect the competition for “dumbest thing ever written on congressional stationery” is probably stiffer than this. I wouldn’t give even odds on “dumbest thing ever written on congressional stationery by a Florida congressman” or even “dumbest thing ever written on congressional stationery by a Florida congressman this century.”

But it’s pretty dumb.
