What a bunch of macaca
We all know what it being said on the blogs and in the WAPO. I watched the video and Sen Allen said the young mans name was Macaca. He did not call him "a macaca"- He said his name was macaca. So are there people named macaca? There are many. Real Clear Politics has this and this. Here is the best analysis so far.
Watch the video for yourself. It is pretty clear, at least to me, that Allen is good naturedly ribbing a guy who is following him around and harassing him. The reason for him being singled out is not because the Webb volunteer, is non-white, but rather because the guy is following Allen around, unwanted, trying to catch him on film in an embarrassing incident. Do you honestly mean to tell me that if Sidarth was just there all alone, among a hundred people Allen would have singled him out because of his ethnicity? Gimme a break. The guy was singled out because he is there unwanted, filming. James Webb has a lot of things going for him that many Democrats do not have, but stooping to cheap racial tactics isn't helpful and it is not smart politics in Virginia. He'd be better off sticking to the issues.
