I think all Americans can be a little bit proud that Allen West was able to get himself elected to Congress and to serve there for one term:

Former Congressman Allen West (R-Florida) thinks President Barack Obama “indirectly responsible” for Thursday’s Malaysian Airlines plane crash in Ukraine, which U.S. officials say could have been caused by an anti-aircraft missile from pro-Russian separatists.
“The blood on Vladimir Putin’s hands was poured by Barack Obama, who is indirectly responsible, accountable and no different than Neville Chamberlain’s weakness in the face of the 20th Century maniacal dictator Adolf Hitler,” West, who maintains a relatively large following among conservative activists, wrote in a new post on his blog Friday.
“So much for no drama Obama,” West added. “He is purposefully creating drama globally.”

I’m not sure if Allen West is technically insane in the same way that, say, Louie Gohmert and Steve King are, but he’s figured out how to make a buck by saying insane stuff.

Thanks, Obama.
