Former Rep. Allen West is enjoying his new role as a talk show host who can say whatever he wants, which includes trashing everyone from Michael Bloomberg to Touré. "I finally get to be a regular guy," West says. "It's great."

Chris Moody from Yahoo! News reports that West is hosting an online talk show for Pajamas Media, and in recent episodes has called NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg a "gnome," MSNBC Host Touré a "coward," and made fun of Fox News' Brit Hume for wearing a pink shirt. From Yahoo:

"Not a fan of salmon?" [co-host John] Phillips asked him after a brief rant about Hume’s clothing.

"Eating salmon," West replied. "Not watching, you know, a guy dressed in salmon."

West also described his reaction to seeing a Calvin Klein ad with a male model wearing only underwear. "I was like ewww, you know?" he said.
