My Dinner with Allen (West)

Any­one who knows me knows that if I think some­thing is over­priced I just won’t buy it. I might want it, or need it, but if the price is too high I just won’t pay it, even if I have the money.

Yes­ter­day I was look­ing for food. With my meat­less Madonna Della Cava meat­less Wednes­days and a Fri­day dur­ing lent I headed for the sports­bar, looked at the price for a burger and fig­ured the bagels for the media would do until I ran into Smitty.

Smitty had entered a con­test to win Din­ner with Col Allen West for­mer Con­gress­man from Florida.

West was a pop­u­lar speaker the day before

and I was very hun­gry so I jumped at the chance for both Access to Allen West and a good meal.

The meal included a recep­tion and we mixed with peo­ple who were to be at the Big Pres­i­den­tial din­ner. I met a woman born in Palermo who gave me her recipe for home­made Can­noli (it will be up later) but the high­light was a shared inter­view with Smitty

at least until we went inside.

I dropped off my lap­top on the stage to to upload files and found my way back to our table. Col West and his wife were already seated. Smitty left a space between us and the West’s and we waited for the rest of the peo­ple at the table to sit down…

…and after a long wait and the serv­ing of food we dis­cov­ered there weren’t any other peo­ple at our table.

We were shocked, sud­denly find­ing our­selves in a posi­tion to carry the full bur­den of con­ver­sa­tion with one of the most famous con­ser­v­a­tives in the coun­try and his wife, who is absolutely charm­ing. It’s not often I’m lost for words but I found myself totally unpre­pared, Smitty mean­while had a slight advan­tage as a man who like the Col had the expe­ri­ence of serv­ing in Afghanistan, their shared expe­ri­ence made inter­est­ing conversation.

Mean­while I engaged Mrs. West about the dif­fer­ence between a mil­i­tary wife and a congressional/​candidates wife and more. By the time the evening Emceed by Dana Loesch with Lee Green­wood pro­vid­ing the enter­tain­ment was done) I think I found more than any­thing the rea­son why Allen West is the man he is, and why he gen­er­ates so much anger from the left.

He and his wife are so damn Nor­mal.

Per­son after per­son came over for pic­tures, to shake hands and what was Mrs. West doing as so many peo­ple, includ­ing some very lovely ladies came to pose with their hero. She was tak­ing a pho­tos of her hus­band with her IPad.

Bot­tom lines the Wests are reg­u­lar peo­ple, good peo­ple and the type of peo­ple you would want liv­ing next door.

Both the Army, and Florida and the nation should be proud to have him and I am proud to have shared a table with him

Anyone who knows me knows that if I think something is overpriced I just won’t buy it. I might want it, or need it, but if the price is too high I just won’t pay it, even if I have the money.

Yesterday I was looking for food. With my meatless Madonna Della Cava meatless Wednesdays and a Friday during lent I headed for the sportsbar, looked at the price for a burger and figured the bagels for the media would do until I ran into Smitty.

Smitty had entered a contest to win Dinner with Col Allen West former Congressman from Florida.

West was a popular speaker the day before

and I was very hungry so I jumped at the chance for both Access to Allen West and a good meal.

The meal included a reception and we mixed with people who were to be at the Big Presidential dinner. I met a woman born in Palermo who gave me her recipe for homemade Cannoli (it will be up later) but the highlight was a shared interview with Smitty

at least until we went inside.

I dropped off my laptop on the stage to to upload files and found my way back to our table. Col West and his wife were already seated. Smitty left a space between us and the West’s and we waited for the rest of the people at the table to sit down…

…and after a long wait and the serving of food we discovered there weren’t any other people at our table.

We were shocked, suddenly finding ourselves in a position to carry the full burden of conversation with one of the most famous conservatives in the country and his wife, who is absolutely charming. It’s not often I’m lost for words but I found myself totally unprepared, Smitty meanwhile had a slight advantage as a man who like the Col had the experience of serving in Afghanistan, their shared experience made interesting conversation.

Meanwhile I engaged Mrs. West about the difference between a military wife and a congressional/candidates wife and more. By the time the evening Emceed by Dana Loesch with Lee Greenwood providing the entertainment was done) I think I found more than anything the reason why Allen West is the man he is, and why he generates so much anger from the left.

He and his wife are so damn Normal.

Person after person came over for pictures, to shake hands and what was Mrs. West doing as so many people, including some very lovely ladies came to pose with their hero. She was taking a photos of her husband with her IPad.

Bottom lines the Wests are regular people, good people and the type of people you would want living next door.

Both the Army, and Florida and the nation should be proud to have him and I am proud to have shared a table with him
