Webb vs. Allen

Immediate reactions from this morning’s Meet the Press debate between Sen. George “Macacca” Allen and former Secretary of the Navy Jim “I’m a little weird” Webb:

a.) Allen reconfirms status as slightly dim.

b.) Allen reluctant to distance himself from role as George Bush’s bitch.

c.) Webb is odd.

d.) Webb apparently not quick enough to answer Russert’s “How are you different on Iraq” question by saying (1) I personally warned Allen that Iraq was a bad idea and (2) Allen made the wrong decision (and would make the wrong decision again!) and should consequently be punished for it. Elections aren’t just about the future–they’re also about ceremonially firing the incompetent boobs who run the show.    

d.) All going fairly well for Webb until he decided to stick with his unfortunate notion that women shouldn’t lead combat units in the military.

e.) The choice superficially appears to be between a confederate flag-waving, South-will-rise-again! jock who uses words he’s ‘never heard before’ and a slightly odd, former Republican misogynist who, at the very least, seems somewhat intelligent. 

Good luck, Virginia!  You deserve it.

It occurs to me after watching yesterday’s debate, why black folk, when given a choice, opt for black representation.

At least then, we are all on the same page with our representative. We ain’t got to ‘splain nothin’.

We all know what the deal is.

If the whole Macaca incident wasn’t a gift from the almighty, then I don’t know what is.

What does Jim do?

The functional equivalent of stepping on his own dick with that Affirmative Action is “state sponsored racism” and then flubbing a direct answer to the VMI question which was just as critical to female voters. The tenor of his past comments about female vets are sexist in the extreme. I didn’t hear a categorical disavowal.

The poor fool is tone-deaf. Why should all of the commonwealth, and the nation have to put up with six more years of an insincere bigot because Jim Webb doesn’t understand the rules of engagement to this latest battle?

Rule number one: Be pro-Israel or fake it.

Rule number two: Don’t question Affirmative Action. Pretend you “get it” and understand what the last 50 years have been about.

Rule number three: Don’t forget the first damn two.

Let’s also not forget that Allen claimed to have made up the word Macaca. That is a bold-faced lie. It is a damn ethnic slur and he knew that when he directed it toward that boy on Webb’s campaign.

He totally undermined the most powerful argument for his election which is his position on the war. The world really needs to hear this man’s rationale for opposing the Iraq War because he is the biggest threat to it’s continuation if he wins.

It’s a damn shame because Democrats coulda had this seat.
