Virginia Republicans Having an Irony Festival

Virginia Republicans have decided the time has come to reach out to minorities. In the past, when they "reached out" it meant a lynching. But this time, they actually want minorities to come around to their side. And what better way to show how much you want to reach minorities than by bringing in George Allen as a "featured speaker."

Hopefully, he doesn't call any of the three minorities who show up "Macaca" this time.

I think it's horrible the way the Democrats smeared poor Allen. He can't be racist, I mean, his Dad coached black kids.
Scimeca argued that Allen's father was a football coach who held up his players, many of whom were African-Americans, as role models for his children. "This is not a racist man," Scimeca said. "He never did anything -- this was totally out of character."
Case closed. No way anyone could be racist if their Dad was a coach. No way.
Sabato's assertion came on the heels of accusations by Dr. Ken Shelton, a radiologist who was a tight end and wide receiver for the University of Virginia in the early 1970s when Allen was quarterback. He said Allen not only used the n-word frequently but also once stuffed a severed deer head into a black family's mailbox.
Minority rally!
Separately, the Washington Post reported that Christopher Taylor, 59, an anthropologist at the University of Alabama, said that during a visit to Allen's Virginia home in 1982, Allen referred to turtles in a pond on his property and said that only "the [racial slur] eat them.
Please, come and join the Republican Party!
The Post also interviewed two former Virginia athletes who asserted Allen frequently used racial slurs during his college years. The athletes were not identified.
George Allen is now your friend!

In his 2000 campaign to unseat Senator Charles S. Robb, Democrats and civil rights groups accused Mr. Allen of racial callousness for having displayed a noose in his law office and a Confederate flag in his home.

Mr. Allen described those as parts of collections of flags and Western memorabilia. "I had all sort of Western stuff in my office," he said, characterizing what others called a noose as "more of a lasso." He said, "It has nothing to do with lynching."

That's weird. Quite a few southern blacks lost their lives while hanging from "lassos."

Keep up the good work, Republicans. You couldn't look like bigger douchebags if you tried.
