George "Macaca" Allen won't seek office again

ALEXANDRIA -- Defeated Republican U.S.Senate candidate George Allen said Monday he will not seek elective office again.

"I'm grateful for the support, generosity and the votes of over 1.7 million people, but I have no intention of running for office again,'' Allen said during a 45-minute interview in his Alexandria office.

In a battle of two former governors, Allen lost to Democrat Tim Kaine in last week's election to succeed retiring Sen. Jim Webb. According to the Virginia State Board of Elections, Kaine received just over 2 million votes and nearly 52.8 percent, to Allen's more than 1.78 million, just over 47 percent of the vote.

Allen said he and wife Susan made the decision not to seek any future bids for political office during a weekend trip to Southwest Virginia where they attended the funeral of retired U.S. District Judge Glen Williams. Allen clerked for Williams for a year after graduating from the University of Virginia Law School in the 1970s.

2. Now that's good news

 

I hope Charlie Summers (Maine) and a number of other serial losers opt out of politics as well.

3. Once touted as the 'next Reagan'.

It was once thought that Allen's folksy down-home manner would attract working class voters and he was being 'groomed' for a run for President.

Ah, "The best laid plans of mice and men
oft go awry."

8. I will join you. I worked for Jim Webb's campaign when he kicked Macaca's ass, and ...

helped with Tim Kaine's GOTV effort this election. As for George Allen ... consume feces and expire you aw-shucks, fake-cowboy, racist, bullshit artist, piece of shit!
