Give Me That Damn Gavel

I know nothing whatever about Col. Allen West, apart from he's running for Congress. But seeing these videos, I want to know more.

On Islam he doesn't quite take the Pope's position, but I am astonished anyone running for office would have the guts to say such a thing.

So...what do we know about this guy?
