Did George Allen repeatedly use a weird racial slur?
According to the Washington Post, Sen. George Allen (R-VA), at a rally in Virginia near the Kentucky border, repeatedly referred to a campaign volunteer for his opponent, Jim Webb, as a "macaca". Apparently the word could be referring to a monkey, or could be a racial slur against African immigrants.

The volunteer was of Indian descent, and was born and raised in America. But that didn't stop Allen from saying things like "Let's give a welcome to macaca here. Welcome to America and the real world of Virginia".

For reference, Allen is the wanna-be-President that used to affix the Confederate flag to anything he could and has a clear history of doing racist things.

    Yeah I saw this on cnn. If you havent seen it, "University of Virginia political analyst Larry Sabato said Allen's remarks could damage Allen's efforts to position himself for a possible run for president in 2008.

    'This is a comment that will be regurgitated a thousand times,' Sabato said. 'It was a clumsy, stupid gaffe, and it's this kind of thing that destroys presidential candidacies.'"

    Wouldnt that be nice
