      After Rep. Lt. Col. Allen West spoke in the House about the debt ceiling crisis, and left the hall, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (also the DNC Chair) took to bashing the freshman Congressman, a Tea Party favorite. Angered that she did not challenge him in person, West sent the Congresswoman, and the leadership of both parties, the following scathing email:

From: Z112 West, Allen
Sent: Tuesday, July 19, 2011 04:48 PM
To: Wasserman Schultz, Debbie
Cc: McCarthy, Kevin; Blyth, Jonathan; Pelosi, Nancy; Cantor, Eric
Subject: Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman-Schultz

Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional ,and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!

I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.

You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!

Steadfast and Loyal

Congressman Allen B West (R-FL)

Calling Grayson’s antics an embarrassment to himself and his district, they hit Grayson hard, they call Daniel Webster an antidote to Alan Grayson, below is part of the article

“Seeking his second term representing Florida’s 8th Congressional District, Democrat Alan Grayson of Orlando carries the hyper-partisan fever that has gripped Washington, D.C. Fortunately for voters in the district, there is an antidote: his opponent, Republican Dan Webster of Winter Garden.

In only two years in the U.S. House, representing a district that runs north from Celebration into Orange, Lake and Marion counties, Mr. Grayson has become nationally notorious for his over-the-top attacks on Republicans. Who could forget these greatest hits? He declared that the GOP health plan was for Americans to “die quickly” if they get sick. He used a vulgar acronym to say that former Vice President Dick Cheney should shut up. He called Republicans “knuckle-dragging Neanderthals.”

He has kept up this scorched-earth approach in his re-election campaign, branding Mr. Webster “Taliban Dan” and “a draft dodger” in a couple of ads. Independent fact-checking organizations have judged those ads as false. So have we.

Mr. Grayson’s antics are not merely an embarrassment to himself and his district. They deepen the partisan divide that has left Congress almost dysfunctional.

It’s too bad. Mr. Grayson has a steel-trap mind, and a successful background in business that might otherwise command the respect of Republicans.

Mr. Grayson insists that he can work across the aisle, leaning heavily on legislation he co-sponsored with Texas Republican Ron Paul to audit the Federal Reserve. But that bill’s passage was driven more by suspicion of the Fed among liberals and conservatives alike, and lingering popular outrage over the financial bailout, than bipartisan persuasion from the Orlando first-termer.

Mr. Grayson has attacked Mr. Webster for his arch-conservative positions on abortion and other social issues. We don’t care much for those positions, either. We urge him, if elected, to focus instead on bipartisan solutions to the nation’s biggest problems, starting with reviving the economy. His experience in Tallahassee gives us good reason to think he can.

We endorse Dan Webster”
