Senator George Allen, Jackass Extraordinaire

I may have mentioned once or twice how much I dislike Senator George Allen and his right-wing Republican politics, and I'm sure there are a lot of people who think Virginia's a little backwards and that it stands to reason we'd have a guy like Allen for senator. But seriously, this guy?! And he wants to be president?!

Allen said he was sorry. Well, actually what he said was, "I do apologize if he was offended by that." As in, "Wow, what a silly thing to get upset about. It's too bad he's stupid enough to be offended by something so trivial." A few days later Allen explained that he meant to call the guy "mohawk," in reference to his hairdo. Yeah, because that sounds a lot like "macaca." Plus, the dude has a mullet.

I guess we shouldn't be surprised given Allen's track record. I mean, we're talking about a guy who opposed the creation of Martin Luther King Day and whose idea of tasteful office decor involves a noose dangling from a tree.

Please tell me we are not going to re-elect this guy. Please.

I've been waiting to hear from you on this!

It's so amusing when a bigot fails at the coded language of bigotry. It's like, oops! Did I just say "coon"? I totally meant "welfare queen"!

Yeah, it's not so much what he CALLED him as the overall way he TREATED him.

What I love is that it wasn't as if he caught him saying it privately, like when they caught Dubya call that one NYT reporter an asshole. Allen did it right to his face! That kind of stupidity may just get him elected!
