Macaca The Sequel?
The Post reports on a potential new angle to the ongoing Senator-Allen-is-a-racist storyline.
Apparently, saying your mother’s father was in a Nazi concentration camp (implying he was Jewish) is fine, but being asked by a reporter if your mother herself was Jewish – thus making you Jewish by blood if not by faith – is “casting aspersions” on your own religious views.
Either that, or being angry with the reporter and being thrilled about a crowd jeering at the notion one may be Jewish just makes you anti-Semitic.
And given Allen’s macaca-gate, and own past history with the Confederacy and the CCC (modern update of the KKK), it may be the latter.
That alone makes me cheer on Jim Webb as the Democratic nominee against Senator Allen.
