Only a Fakakta Politician Calls Someone Macaca

A great post at carpetbagger about the George Allen "macaca" flap. For those of you who haven't heard the news through all of the JonBenet media clutter, Senator (and Presidential hopeful) George Allen referred to a volunteer of Indian descent for his senate opponent Jim Webb as a "macaca" in front of a southwestern Virginia crowd. He then said, "Welcome to America and the real world of Virginia." Ironically, the volunteer, S.R. Sidarth, is a native of Virginia, unlike Senator Allen. And he is neither a monkey nor the racist term for a North African.
