From the home office in Arlington, Virginia

The number one sign that George Allen's "Macaca" comment might hurt him in November:

. . . they're now selling themed t-shirts to raise money for his opponent.

I think the article in the Post should be titled: "Redneck Politico Shows his True Colors: Closet Bigots Cheer."

Ninja, perhaps you should have been a copy editor?

I'd suggest that the subtitle be "Northern Virginians ponder secession."

I think he's soooo out of touch. He spoke at my sister's college graduation and he kept going on and on and on about how students need to study math and technology to catch up with India and China. Ummm...Hello? You're at a graduation! So basically are you saying that all of the liberal arts majors sitting before you who are finishing school today were a waste of time? It was just a really weird speech to give.

i agree with the secession idea. there's already a west VA. there might as well be a northern VA. we'll take the revenue with us.

Sweet: George Allen's dad was an NFL coach. How much more removed from reality can you get?

According to Wikipedia, his college degree was in history, but I guess he made himself competitive with India and China by getting a law degree? I can tell you how well that works.

Oh, and Wikipedia notes that his mom was a Tunesian/French/Italian Jew who hated this country.

Lizzie: It's only fair. I mean, when West Virginia left, they got to keep the whitewater rafting.
