Palin: West, the ‘Rogue’ VP Choice

Sarah Palin said Wednesday that Rep. Allen West would be the “rogue” choice for the Republican Party’s vice-presidential nominee. “I love that he has that military experience. He is a public servant willing to serve for the right reasons. He understands the Constitution. He understands our national foreign policy issues that must be addressed,” she said of the Florida Republican. “I really like him ... And when I talk about going rogue, what I want to do is encourage the GOP nominee to not think that they have to go with somebody necessarily safe that conventional wisdom perhaps would lead somebody to believe that, if it’s somebody, quote-unquote, safe, that they’re not going to get beat up by the media, because no matter who it is.”
