On Current TV's Young Turks show last night, Rolling Stone's own Tim Dickinson joined Megan Carpenter of Raw Story and host Cenk Uygur to tackle the perennial question: What the hell is it with Allen West? West, if you need catching up, is a hard-core conservative congressman from Florida with a history of making ridiculous and/or offensive comments to grab headlines. Yesterday, West breezily estimated that about 80 House Democrats are Communists. Sigh. Tim's take: "I think he’s straight trolling us" for attention. Guess it worked.
