Allen West Blasts Washington, D.C. Culture
Takes the Metro home.

Republican congressman Allen West of Florida took to his Facebook page to criticize Washington, D.C. culture, after attending this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner over the weekend:
West earned a mention from the night's entertainment, late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel, who brought up a recent interview in which President Obama referred to rapper Kanye West as a "jacka--." "No offense, sir, but I think you got the wrong West," Kimmel deadpanned. "I think you meant Allen."
West's aside about taking the Metro (subway) home is likely no populist embellishment: WEEKLY STANDARD staffers have witnessed the Florida congressman on board with other Washington commuters and tourists.
