Apparently George Allen is gonna concede the Virginia senatorial race to Jim Webb any minute now. Word has it that he has been advised to do so before the FBI starts complaining about certain broken election laws....my my!!
Anyway, the title of this Huffpost post is "Senior Staffer: Allen 'Shell-Shocked,' Sequestered In His Home..."
Here's my #1 favorite comment:
Let's see, did he have his face blown off? Lose an arm or leg? Suffer permanent brain injury? Go bankrupt due to harsher regulations? Go hungry when his student loan interest rate went up? Did someone put him in a headlock and throw him into a window? Ridicule his race in a public event? Hang him out over Niagra Falls? Break his collarbone? Wiretap his phone or Internet communications? Torture him in a covert CIA prison?
Did anyone do to him what his votes and actions have done to others?
Didn't think so.
Good riddance, Hillbilly Bear. Payback is a bitch.

Senior Staffer: Allen "Shell-Shocked," Sequestered In His Home..."
This is the same GOP neo-con chicken hawk who was such an enthusiastic cheerleader for the "showk and awe" bombing of civilian men, women and children in Iraq. And now he is curled up in a fetal position in his home because he lost an election.
Good-bye Mr. Allen. We have rid ourselves of you finally. Too bad it won't be that easy to rid ourselves of the negative impacts of your actions. But you can't bring back dead soldiers or Iraqi children, nor unring the bell of an illegal invasion and occupation. We will be dealing with the effects of these issues for the rest of our lives. But for the rest of your life Mr. Allen, we will all remember your role in this tragic disaster in Iraq. While your in the fetal position crying, you might want to contemplate that also.

How comic is it that the last two concessions should be" Burns and Allen"? Awww, you younger folks won't get this!

[I got it! I got it!! but a course, I ain't younger folks, either]
Word inside the Beltway is that Georgie can have John Warner's seat when he retires in two years. Y'all hear that Virginny? Gives you a chance to reject this Christo-fascist bully-thug-boor all over again. Let's start by investigating those mysterious phone calls threatening Virginia's minorities with arrest and imprisonment if they tried to vote. I guess George didn't know that was going on in his campaign? Right. Wallow in it Sen. Macacawitz. Just try to make a comeback. You turned Northern Virginia blue. Thank You.
