I wonder abut those people who see him as (vice)presidential material, what are they inhaling?

The conservative tea party icon also got in shots at Democrats and President Obama, who spoke Tuesday at Florida Atlantic University. West said Obama was "scared" to have a discussion with him. He later said "he's heard" up to 80 U.S. House Democrats are Communist Party members, but wouldn't name names.

Well, they'd have to be from states that allow you to dually register with the Democratic and Communist parties.  That'll narrow down the options quite a bit.

I'd bet the house that there are more communists in congress than functioning brain cells in Allen West.

I'll take that bet and say both numbers are equal.

A little more, but yeah they're pretty rare in the US. The President of Cyprus is a Communist.

Which means that 4% of their entire party membership is currently serving in the US House of Representatives.

That's probably the most successful level of political entryism the world has ever seen since Darth Sidious.

Connecticut For Lieberman was according to Wiki formed by 25 Lieberman(-ites? -iacs?), and presumably includes Lieberman, so 1/26, like 3.85%.

Lieberman is not a member of Connecticut for Lieberman.

Oh yes, Connecticut for Lieberman was taken over by an anti-Lieberman faction. Should have remembered.

Lieberman was never a member of CFL. He remains a registered Democrat.

Well then CFL does not have any elected officials, resolving the original question.
