Allen West: Tea Party Is Like 'The Blob'

Allen West may be a Tea Party darling, but that won't stop him from calling it like he sees it. "When you look at the Tea Party, it's much like Steve McQueen's movie The Blob," the Florida representative suggested Friday on CNN when asked about the movement's failure to unite over one Republican candidate. "They're kind of different from each state to each state. There really is no centralized organization or structure to it, so each organization in its respective state or even North Florida to South Florida can differ."
