What's the worst thing you can call George Allen?

Apparently, Senator Macaca becomes extremely testy if you insult him by insinuating that he might be...gasp...a Jew! (Or even descended from Jews!)
The guy’s reaction to thie fairly innocent question is just...frightening, on several levels.
Plus, it may be that he actually is a Jew after all!
See ya on Rosh Hashanah, George.

Senitor Macaca

I'm stuck with this doofus, maybe for life. His father was a cheating bastard when he coached the Washington football team. (And stupid like his son -- he wouldn't start Sonny against Miami.) All of which is a lot more relevant than whether his mother had a Jewish father. I think he was right to lambast the questioner. And sadly, I suspect it was smart, politically. Oy.

Re: Senitor Macaca

Yeah, I was afraid that it might have been politically clever.
No one seems to be as disturbed as me about this, which is OK. I may be oversensitive or just taking it wrong or something.
The question is not relevant, but at the same time his reaction to it seems inappropriate.

Re: Senitor Macaca

Just read the write-up in the Post. I missed that he referred to the question as being an "aspersion". Of course, the post also noted that his opponent referred to "all those horny women at the Naval Academy." Did I mention that Virginia don't elect smart people to the senate.

Oh, and the Post quoted some outfit that thought that both is maternal grandfather and maternal grandmother were Jewish, or would have been if they had not been forcibly converted. So on paper, this putz could be one of us.
