The Desperation Starts Early

Well, it seems that Democrat Senate candidate Jim Webb and his minions have seen the handwriting on the wall, and are playing the race card early and often. The Washington Post has jumped on the bandwagon, too. The accusation seems to be that Allen referred to the young man in question not as a political flunkie for the Webb campaign, but using an obscure term that refers to a monkey.

This is too rich. It reminds me of the story out of the University of Pennsylvania a few years ago, where Eden Jacobowitz called noisy people outside of his dorm room "water buffaloes," and was accused of racial insensitivity.

That Webb and his media supporters are already desperate enough to trump up this charge is nothing but good news for the Allen campaign. What's really too bad is that Allen's fair-weather friends are already jumping on the band wagon. Or maybe it's good, because it simply reveals them for the opportunistic weak sisters that they really are.
