Poor Allen West. He was the undisputed "craziest" Republican in Congress, as Lawrence O'Donnell explained in the latest Rewrite. Now he's got some competition. Practically out of no where, he got ambushed this week by little known Missouri Congressman Todd Akin.
Anxious for West to keep his reigning title, election opponent Patrick Murphy found a brilliant way to remind voters of West's antics. Murphy didn't rewrite West's words. Instead he let children read quotes from West in a brand new campaign ad.
