Salon.com has named its person of the year, the 21-year-old Webb campaign volunteer who captured on tape the incumbent, Virginia Senator George Allen, calling him “macaca” and welcoming him to America.
What seasoned politician with a commanding lead, fully expecting an easy victory and looking to presidential hopes for 2008, would look at a dark-skinned kid holding a camera and call him a name? Any name? Mr. Allen, you made it too easy.
Get the story, in more ways than one. And don’t leave home without your camera!
Check out my November 28 post on England, Allen and Richards. Mr. Allen is in good company.
