BREAKING NEWS: Hakuna Macaca, Or, George Allen Puts Foot In Mouth And Sucks, Hard

A Lenny Bruce for our times

Sen. George Allen, national comic treasure:

S.R. Sidarth, a senior at the University of Virginia, had been trailing Allen with a video camera to document his travels and speeches for the Webb campaign. During a campaign speech Friday in Breaks, Virginia, near the Kentucky border, Allen singled out Sidarth and called him a word that sounded like “Macaca….”

“Lets give a welcome to Macaca, here. Welcome to America and the real world of Virginia,” said Allen, who then began talking about the “war on terror.”

In an interview, Sidarth said he suspects Allen singled him out because he was the only non-white face in the audience, which he estimated included about 100 Republican supporters.

George Allen! He’s edgy! Like Chris Rock, or John Rocker! That’s the PC mafia for you: Always trying to muzzle dangerous political humor in the name of radical left-wing concepts like “tolerance” and “respect.” Next they’ll be saying it’s wrong for him to walk up to Sen. Daniel Inouye, bow deeply, and go “Ching chong, ching chong,” or to hum “If I Were A Rich Man” whenever he meets with members of AIPAC. Keep telling it like it is, Senator — if there’s one thing the world needs now, it’s laughter, preferably derived from cheap ethnic stereotyping.
