Compare and contrast: One man is a decorated war hero who served multiple combat tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan, the other was in the Senate for almost four decades before he became a Vice President best known for saying incredibly stupid things.

Vice President Joe Biden apparently isn’t the biggest fan of now-former Rep. Allen West.
During a rooftop party for West’s competition — newly sworn-in Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-Fla.) — the VP expressed his delight about the outcome of the 18th Congressional District race.
“I’d like to say to all of you, you did the country a favor,” Biden told the party crowd on Thursday, according to TCPalm.
Biden also joked about West’s claim that there are 80 communists in the House of Representatives — meaning the Democrats in the Congressional Progressive Caucus.
“This way, we’ll never know who the 30 communists were up here, or 80, or however the hell many there were,” Biden said at the party.
