That sound you hear?
Is the death knell for George Allen. When the story of his 'fascination' with the confederate flag came out, I was mildly disgusted. See, I have absolutely zero patience for anyone who tries to insinuate that the confederate flag represents anything but bigotry, racism and violence. It is clearly grossly offensive to huge parts of the population, not just minorities. There is literally no excuse to hold up that flag as anything of which to be proud. Well, George was fighting his way through that one and boom...he quite lazily inserts his foot in his mouth and his head up his ass.
Turns out, his mother is French Tunisian and the word he used is an ethnic slur against Africans in North Africa. He most certainly knew what it meant. Say goodbye George, thats all folks.
PS. and the video is already up at YouTube. Damn the internets and their tricksy ways.
Hat tip, TNR obviously.
