After calling for censorship of the media, and criticizing President Obama for visiting the troops at night, one might think Rep. Allen West would want to take a day off.  Now he wants Congress to focus on the infiltration of Sharia Law into the United States. (via Think Progress)

West said that, although he has not spoken with all of the new members, he hoped that Congress would focus on the “infiltration of the Sharia practice into all of our operating systems in our country as well as across Western civilization.” He explained that targeting Sharia should be part of America’s “national security strategy” and that a response to Sharia would somehow include “tailor[ing]” American “security systems, our political systems, economic systems, our cultural and educational systems, so that we can thwart this”

All I know is that Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin better bring their game up a notch or two.  There’s a new candidate for the king (or queen) of crazy.
