No. 3: Allen West
Republican U.S. Rep. Allen West has taken Congress by storm.
West is a tea party hero and a villain in the eyes of Democrats.
One thing that can't be argued is that you know where he stands. West doesn't hold back; if he thinks it, he says it. And, West makes no apologies for expressing himself, no matter whom he offends.
Democrats have their eyes on West's seat as he runs for re-election in 2012. West says bring it on.
