Former Republican Congressman, Retired Army Lt. Col. and Tea Party favorite Allen West went “On The Record” Tuesday night with Greta Van Susteren. The number one topic was his future plans after a narrow, disappointing defeat for re-election in Florida’s 18th Congressional district.
The Dylan Thomas line, “Do not go gentle into that good night” is something that applies to West in spades. He has strong opinions and has never been reticent to let them be known. Tuesday night was no exception.
He announced that he’d recently joined PJ Media as a director and co-host of shows aimed specifically toward the next generation — ages 18 to 25. The show “will look at the news — the current news through the lens of young Americans.” It’s called “Next Generation.”
“One of the programs I’ll have starting on the fourth of February,” he added, “will be ‘Next Generation Today.”
As expected, West will “not go gentle into the good night,” but will always make his presence known and his voice heard. Godspeed, Colonel.
