Allen West Channels John Iselin

Fans of the 1962 film The Manchurian Candidate know that John Iselin was the hapless tool of his wife, a Communist plotter played by Angela Lansbury. A running joke in the film was that Iselin (modeled after Joseph McCarthy) always named a different number of Communists who had infiltrated the department of defense. His wife helped him settle on a number with the help of a bottle of Heinz 57 ketchup.

Fast forward to 2012 and truth becomes stranger than fiction. Tuesday, Florida congressman Allen West told a gathering that there were between 78 and 81 Democrats in Congress who are Communists. I desperately wanted to find  a video of the original John Iselin declaration but RightWingWatch.org did my work for me.

Now could someone just tell Allen’s wife (who by scary coincidence is named Angela) to get him a bottle of ketchup so he can settle on one number?
