camera set me up!

George Allen Again Victimized by Functioning Video Camera (VIDEO)

A fitting tribute to a great statesman.Past and future failed Senate candidate George Allen held a Facebook town-hall with Virginia shut-ins and others who could not click the “X” button in time. Okay, wait. Were we not explicitly promised that the 2006 clip of Allen calling a rival campaign staffer “macaca” was THE END of his political career, which at one time included even some aroused grunting in the direction of the Presidency? Maybe not, because Allen’s still running for Senate. And, wouldn’t you know it, the camera set him up again!

In this episode of JUST STOP SAYING WORDS IT’S SO EASY, the former fluke governor/senator pulses with joy over having to actually talk to potential voters.

Of course, the campaign is blaming “technical difficulties” for Allen’s tantrum. Hmm. Can Virginia really afford a potential senator whom all technology has vowed to destroy, comically? [HuffPo]

    Why isn't he holding his football in the video?

    • http://thethingsrepublicanshate.com/ Chillwaver

      Because he is sitting on it.

    • http://www.southsidejohnny.com/ Jukesgrrl

      Why isn't he wrapped in the Stars and Bars? The least he could do is one of those Confederate doo-rags.

  • memzilla

    Oops, he did it again.

    Isn't Rep. Eric "Ratface" Cantor from the same Virginia district that Sen. George "Macaca" Allen was?

    • BaldarTFlagass

      I thought senators served "at large" rather than a certain district. Of course, Virginia; what the fuck do I know?

      • memzilla

        You're right. And further research shows they are both originally from Plutocrat Corners, Virginia.

        • Loaded_Pants

          West end Richmond, represent!

    • Terry

      Eric Cantor is from Richmond and went to college and law school in Virginia. George Allen was born in California and lived there then Chicago, then back to southern California, following his father's career as an NFL coach. Allen was in college when his father became coach of the Redskins and Allen (the son) transferred to UVa when his family moved east.

          Shit, if that was the case, they'd be sprouting up all over the place. NOBODY likes to shoot their wad all over the nation as much as the Republicans. They're a fucking walking talking bukkake performance.

      • Loaded_Pants

        And if you criticize Cantor you're labelled an "Anti-Semite" so that ends all logical criticism of him. It's the lesser-known "Jew-card" that doesn't get played as much.

    Congratulations, George. You've just earned an Academy Award™ nomination for your deft portrayal of a grinning, moronic poopsack.

    • user-of-owls

      And the cameraman is a shoo-in for Best Score.

    • Rotundo_

      George didn't merely play a role, he became a grinning, moronic poopsack. Well, actually he didn't become a grinning, moronic poopsack, he already was one. Let's just say that being a grinning, moronic poopsack is something George was born to do, developed and honed to a razor's edge. A grinning, moronic poopsack among grinning, moronic poopsacks. He has transcended grinning moronically while being a poopsack. (Sorry, I just like the term grinning moronic poopsack, particularly when applied to someone who it sums up simply and eloquently.)

    This guy has all the sincerity of a hand job.

    • prommie

      Ahh, I am overcome with nostalgia whenever I see or hear the word "handjob." The lost innocense of youth, when the world was somehow brighter, and even a lowly handjob was a thing of wonder and joy.

      • Barb

        Prommie, you have no idea the sick Country Time Lemonade commercial that is playing in my head right now. "remember the good old day, tire swings, drive-in movies and beating your man's dick like it owes you money"

        • prommie

          Some time in one's 20s, it seems to me, the handjob ceases to be a stand-alone option, replaced completely by the blowjob.

          • MissTaken

            According to Glamour Magazine the handjob is staging a comeback, some sort of Retro Revival thing. They even give tips (haha, tips!). Then again, they also talk about Kim Kardashian like she's an actual person we should pay attention to, so who knows? http://www.glamour.com/sex-love-life/blogs/smitte

          • http://Wonkette.com DemmeFatale

            My daughter attends Santacon in NYC as a "Hanukkah Bush." She wears a flesh colored body suit with masses of glued on pubic hair. (We're so proud!)
            Upon seeing her last year, this older lady told her granddaughter: "See, I told you pubic hair was coming back!"

          • finallyhappy

            So does she get the pubic hair from Borat or from some Brazilian wax place?

  • http://facethesuncastnoshadow.wordpress.com/ Mumbletypeg

    oooh I detected — is it possible? — sarcasm in that last bit, "Let's do this again tomorrow!" From a Republican that's quite something.

    Mostly though I'm disappointed Allen didn't display more diva-like qualities between takes, uttering streams of profanities in a complete reversal of the fake glib persona shown to the public. A friend of mine who shoots local ads for things like auto dealers and high-interest ("Pay NOTHING down until 2013!") furniture warehouses has compiled enough discarded footage of the local actor personalities shilling for these businesses to splice devilshly good blooper reels; he's shown them at parties sometimes and I can only say George here has nothing on the meltdowns I've seen in the name of getting some scripted message across.

    Okay, that was really boring.

    • user-of-owls

      Maybe he's running for Pawlenty's seat?

  • HedonismBot

    Allen seems to feel the same way about filming promos for voters that us unemployed schlubs feel when the job interviewer at McDonald's asks us to explain "why do you want this job?"
    Telling the truth – "I really need the money" – just doesn't fly. And every other answer is too insincere to give with a straight face. Sometimes, pretending to give a shit is just too much to ask, whether you're trying to get a minimum wage job or trying to impress those lowly voters.

  • V572 the Merciless

    Allen is just another victim of the Gotcha media, although in this case the getters were working for him.

    Just like Obstetro-Congressman Ron Paul, whose past statements, wherein he spouts insane racist bullshit to match his insane social bullshit, are getting raked over by the media. Why are the lamestream media doing this? Because they can't let him win! Plus they look like dipshits if he wins and that can't happen either.

    He's a scary, awful, heartless man, and I do so hope he wins Iowa. Or Ricky S.

    • proudgrampa
