From New Times:
It seems like it’s been a while, but Rep. Allen West is back on the media circuit, this time declaring President Obama a “Marxist” and saying he’d “need a bucket” when Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s name was brought up.
Yesterday, West was a guest of the Michael Berry Show on a Houston AM radio station and was asked to say the first thing that came to mind when Berry said someone’s name during a free-association game, telling him to be “undiplomatic and unscripted, which you typically are.”
After going through about a dozen names, including calling Vice President Joe Biden “nutty” and “mindless,” Berry called out Wasserman Schultz.
“I need a bucket,” West replied.

From The Washington Post:
Two key architects of the Bush administration’s controversial interrogation policies defended their legal positions today, sparring with House Democrats over whether discredited Justice Department opinions led to unlawful torture of military and CIA detainees.
The testimony from David S. Addington, chief of staff to Vice President Cheney, and John C. Yoo, a former senior Justice Department lawyer, was light on details but heavy on semantic disputes with lawmakers on a House Judiciary subcommittee.
