Allen West about to exit stage left

Watching Allen West desperately try to keep his congressional seat is entertaining and illuminating. West is intractable. He refuses to concede. He’s lost the election, that much was made clear in the recent recount. Now, he must exit the stage. Right?

“It’s time for Allen West to do the right thing and concede,” said Murphy’s senior adviser, Eric Johnson.

“As usual, Murphy’s people are full of garbage,” Tim Edson, West’s campaign manager, said. “This is something the secretary of state and governor will have to sort out.”

Don’t wait for West to concede. Let him go down in history as a self-deluded bully and loser. It will be better that way. Now, if we can just get him to act like Snagglepuss and exit, stage left. Heavens to Betsy, I need the laugh.
