4. The "principles and ideals"
you keep referring to are probably what lost you the election. TERRIBLE concession speech, but cute kids.

5. Did you catch his kids' names?
The son is Forrest, as in Nathan Bedford Forrest, Confederate general and first grand wizard of the KKK. Probably no coincidence that daughter Tyler shares the name of the last Confederate General slain in battle and daughter Brooke shares the name of John Mercer Brooke, an officer in the Confederate Navy who designed a weapon called the Brooke Rifle, produced in Richmond and used by Confederate soldiers. She also shares the name of Richard Brooke Garnett, Confederate General from Virginia killed in the battle of Gettysburg.
I went to high school with George Allen in California. He wore a Stars and Bars pin in his senior photo and was suspended for spray painting racist graffiti on the school walls. He's a genuine piece of work.
