Video of the Week: Diss Ingenuous
It's a double video feature this week, with The Daily Show on George Felix "Macaca" Allen, Jr. (I won't spoil it with a partial script, you have to watch for the punchline) and a CNN interview with S.R. Siddarth, the target of Allen's slur.
Also, George Felix Allen, Jr. looks to be suffering a setback in the polls because of his extremely dumb remarks. From Rasmussen:
Senator George Allen's alleged slur of an opposition campaign worker of Indian descent, recorded on video, has provoked a furious controversy in the state. In the wake of the controversy, support for Allen has dipped below the 50% mark for the first time this year.Couldn't have happened to a more deserving man:
Senator George Allen’s racial remark to a 20 year old Indian man last week, has re-highlighted accusations that the Senator is a bully and a bigot. Senator Allen’s sister, Jennifer Allen, documents many cases of her brother’s bullying in her book Fifth Quarter: The Scrimmage of a Football Coach's Daughter. Read the excerpts below.
