I'm Allen West, and I approved the torture of a helpless prisoner
Loathsome Teapublican Allen West may have cause to regret his most recent ploy in his campaign to retain his seat in Congress. "Compare and contrast", it suggests: at the same time one guy was being arrested for a drunken brawl, the other was serving his country.
Problem is, the one who was serving his country was charged with assaulting a prisoner and only escaped a court martial because he cut a deal to be allowed to resign instead. And while everyone was being ever so nice and not mentioning the whole Allen-West-unindicted-war-criminal thing, well, since he raised his military record himself it's open season.
So yeah, let's compare and contrast. A guy fighting in a bar, against people who were fighting back: versus an armed soldier, accompanied by other armed soldiers, beating a restrained prisoner and staging a mock execution.
Let's compare and contrast. A kid who takes his lumps and goes to jail: a spoiled army officer who wheedles his way out of a court martial for his crimes by agreeing to "pay a fine" instead.
In most countries there is a name for buying your way out of criminal proceedings, and it's either bribery or corruption. You decide.
Oh, and if it's unflattering pictures you want, there's this one:
No, it isn't photoshopped. And yes, I know it isn't as bad as it looks, but who's the guy using unflattering pictures to try to con the electorate again?
