Allen West's Half-Marathon: Slower Than Sarah Palin, but Slightly Faster Than Oprah

Parasailin' Sarah Palin
Rep. Allen West completed the half-marathon at the Palm Beaches Marathon Festival this weekend at a time that places his half-marathon ability somewhere between Sarah Palin and Oprah.

West was showing off the thighs during the race -- possibly NSFW picture can be found here -- cruising to a final time of 2:05:49, just a little over a minute shy of the 74-year-old gentleman who won the 70-and-over age group.

After the race, West announced he was "doggone tired" and also dropped an "lol" in his Facebook status.

"Ran 1/2 marathon in Palm Beach Marathon this am," West said. "At 50 yrs old I'm still keepin' up, but I'm doggone tired, going to rest & take aspirin lol."

West's time was almost 20 minutes slower than Palin's last half-marathon, which the 47-year-old ran unannounced in Iowa in September.

Former President George W. Bush, more of a marathon kind of guy, has a personal-best time in a full marathon of 3:44:52 -- a much faster pace than West's.

Still, West is faster than Oprah was in her prime. We could find only one half-marathon time for Oprah, who was clocked at 2:16 back in 1993, almost a full ten minutes slower than the congressman.

In other West-related news, he also posted to his Facebook about the whole Herman Cain situation, apparently unhappy we all repeated what he said and -- again -- invoking a theory involving "black men":

The media is trying to put me against Herman Cain. I guess its good for them to see two black men against each other. The facts are I am not telling Cain to step down. That is his decision and his only. What I said is the media focus on these incidents and "alleged affairs" are a distraction, and we as a country need to move on from this subject and get the focus on what the GOP contenders can seriously do for this country.

In his weekly newsletter, he noted that Americans are being treated like mushrooms -- "kept in the dark and fed crap."

Right on, Sarah Palin! As for West - very disappointed in him. And I'm not talking about his half-marathon time. He turned out to be a follower, and not a leader. Sarah Palin is the true leader. Reconsider, Sarah, Reconsider!

Half-leader would be more like it. Leader for half her term as governor. Half-wit, too.

Wonder what ol' Allen would have said about Newt and the House impeachment team spending all that time on Monica Lewinsky's blue dress instead of passing legislation to benefit the country? If Herman Cain's verified cases of sexual harassment and 13-year extramarital affair are just "distractions," what was Bill Clinton's one little blowjob? Yes, I can just hear ol' Allen saying, "Nothing to see here; just move on," to Henry Hyde and Bill McCollum and all those slimeballs.

Allen West for President. The perfect leader for the crusade to rid America of the liberal influence one election at a time.

No need for a war criminal to hold ANY office.  Especially one who would rather run a marathon instead of, oh I dont know, WORK!The only time you ever see West anywhere near Congress is if there is a photo op.West needs to go play with FOX an leave running the country to the grown ups.
