George Allen Doesn't Like Black People!!!
A democratic strategist once told me that he thought that republicans don't really want to win arguments, they just want to muddy them up so much that the public doesn't really know what they are looking at. This is the case when it comes to George Allen's campaign against Jim Webb over the past few months. For example, to counter Allen's lengthy history of being a huge fucking racist, his campaign pulled a guy named Dan Cragg out of their collective asses. Cragg is a Vietnam veteran and a prolific writer who claims that during a newspaper interview he did with Jim Webb in 1983, that Webb recalled college pranks from 20 years earlier in which racial epithets were used and guns were pointed at African Americans on the streets of Watts. Now keep this in mind, said racism is missing from Cragg's own transcript of the interview and the tape recording, and Cragg says he doesn't know if he erased it or just failed to record that segment of the interview. Ok.. Keep this in mind as well, besides his bio saying that he is "an analyst for the Defense Department", he has strong ties to the Bush administration. That is the basis of Jim Webb's "racism", the words of a fucking partisan hack who claims that Webb said something even though there is no recording of him saying this, no notes, nothing. But you can bet your sweet ass that every media outlet, and a slew of silly right wing bloggers who decided to leave their conscious at the door were willing to run with something so unsubstantiated that they made Geraldo Rivera look like Edward R. Murrow. See, the argument is now muddy, and Jim Webb becomes indistinguishable with the hatemonger that is George Allen.
The Second example is how the Allen campaign has pointed to Webb's fictional writings, he is an award winning author, and not only tried to show his distaste for women through his fictional characters, but also claimed that he was a racist based on some racial epithets a character used in one of his books. Jesus, in that case, Martin Scorsese, Quinton Tarantino, and Steven Spielberg better not run for public office ever, because they will be branded as racists!! But that's what they do, they want you to think that Webb's fictional writings are the same as George Allen opposing a Martin Luther King jr. Holiday. They want you to think that the unproven words of a Bush loyalist about Webb are the same as Allen calling a young man "Macaca" at a campaign event. They want you to think that the words of fictional characters in one of Webb's books is the same as Allen posing for a picture with the Council of Conservative Citizens(CCC), a fucking White Supremacist group!!
Based on George Allen's incompetence and history of racism, the fact that Webb is only leading by one percentage point is despicable. If you know anyone in Virginia, your baby's momma, your transvestite cousin, even that dude you fucked in college once on a dare, tell them to vote for Webb come Tuesday. Oh yeah, fuck you Larry Elder, Jim Webb and George Allen aren't the same person.
