George "Macaca" Allen Steps in It Again

In law school former U. S. Senator George Allen - who is running again for the seat he lost six years ago to Jim Webb - wasn't a bad guy. Indeed, he hosted some pretty wild and raucous parties - one of which was where I first met my former wife. Even as Governor of Virginia at a law school class reunion he was able to charm the ultra liberal wife of one of our mutual classmates who had left the legal profession and become a screen writer in Hollywood. But as time has gone by, George is turning increasingly into an utter dolt. Worse yet, on social issues, he's sadly a total puppet of the Christofascists at The Family Foundation and other similar "family values" hate groups. George's latest blunder was whining about how "torturous" it is to speak to voters while thinking the camera and audio feed were not still running (the video is above). Here is commentary from Blue Virginia:

Yesterday evening, George Allen held an online townhall meeting via Facebook. At the peak of the event, only 35 people were watching, many of whom were probably Felix Macacawitz's political staffers, and by the end there a lot fewer. So, it's fair to say that almost nobody was watching as Allen, who thought the camera was turned off, complained about how "uh, god, torturous" the experience of speaking to voters was. Allen also jokes about "reindeers" and "elves in the servers," sarcastically says "let's do this tomorrow!," comments about the "great spontaneity" ("TAKE THREE!"), and asks "what do you reckon it was for me?" in response to a comment about how "nervewracking" the experience was.

So George, if it's so painful for you to speak to Virginia voters, if you hate campaigning so much (just like you hated being in the U.S. Senate), why on earth are you running? It's not like anybody's forcing you to do this, right? If you want to just drop out now, and go back to full-time shilling (for boatloads of cash) for the dirty energy industry, that's fine with us. Just a friendly suggestion. :)

My thoughts? Being a full time attorney sucks most of the time. The hours are terrible and one is pressed to juggle time and commitments to keep everyone happy all of the time. Why would George want to go back to being an attorney when an elected official has so much less accountability. And who am I supporting to fill Webb's soon to be vacant seat? It's not George Allen.
