West should be rotting in Leavenworth for warcrimes. He disgraced his uniform, and he is a disgrace to the Congress. The man is beneath contempt.

Well. That was different, although fairly predictable.

In the same speech, West compared conservative women to the women of Sparta, who he claimed were the real strength behind the men of the ancient Greek city-state.

Heh. There's an old tale of a Spartan warrior complaining to his mother that his sword was too short for battle.

She said "Step forward, and it shall be long enough", basically implying her son was acting cowardly. If that ain't a kind of neutering...

What a pig.

Also, I looked up West on Wikipedia.

It mentions the "Leavenworth Ten" who are these people, and what did they do?

Spartan women were tough chicks. Also, quite financially and operationally independent.

However, the idea that anyone would suggest that ancient Sparta was a civilization the United States might ever want to emulate is pretty unnerving.
