So I'm watching the roll-call for Speaker, and I have a procedural question.

    On CNN I saw them call for Allen West, that douchebag from Florida that got voted out of office, god bless.

    Why would Allen West have any say in the speaker of the house for the 113th Congress? :dontknow:

    uh, 'cause he still represents his constituency, and if he didn't vote, they would have no say in the matter?

    uh, he doesn't represent his constituency any longer. Idiot.



    OK, I figured it out. When I heard West's name called it wasn't asking for his vote, it was some other dipshit voting FOR West to be Speaker.
