Monday: Allen West appears on Fox News's Power Play. Subjects include the racist rock on Rick Perry's old campground, and Herman Cain's opinions about black liberals.
Wednesday: Allen West appears on Fox News. Subject: Samuel L. Jackson's interview with New York, in which he said the animus for the Tea Party was race.
My prediction for Friday: Happy Endings star Damon Wayans, Jr. will say something quasi-controversial. What will Allen West say about it?
