Cal Thomas asks "Will Allen's denouncers be equal-opportunity critics?" Not likely. I did not buy into the issue as racial. I still don't. One blogger is writing those who did not denounce this as racism will pay for it in the future. At the same time we see the supposedly highly offensive word used on most democratic blogs, with some actually calling Sen Allen the same (supposed)racial slur. I think in the end, most thinking people see the political bias of those who yell racism during a campaign. Cal writes
"If the mockers, bloggers and columnists who jumped on George Allen don't jump with at least equal fervor on Andrew Young, their political bias is showing. Maybe Mr. Allen (and Mr. Gibson) can send Mr. Young a sympathy card and wait to see if equal-opportunity ridicule for Mr. Young shows up on Comedy Central."
The WAPO writes that Sen Allen was in NOVA yesterday and macaca was not the subject point.
"There were no questions from the public about his remarks yesterday; voters preferred to talk about energy independence, health care and Iraq."
I think voters understand the bias of the left on this issue.
Webb was behind closed doors with Gov Kaine trying gain support from black leaders. Since when does a democrat have to work so hard to get the black vote? Very interesting indeed.
