that stupid POS George Felix Allen called a 'macaca' and said 'welcome to Virginia' to had yelled. "I, unlike you, was born in Virginia, you racist POS".

That would have been sweet.

1. me too, but you know what would have happened
The media would have pounced on the POS part and ignored the rest. Better to have just said "At least I am a NATIVE Virginian, you California carpetbagger!"
But it is really hard to think when that kind of demeaning crap goes down.

leads to LTTE's to the TD (Major RW paper) about Allen's faux pas (if you can call it that. I personally think he knew what he was saying but was banking that no one else did)

As a note, the above poster is correct about what big media would have done. Although it would have felt good.

4. Alas, his Mama taught him some manners
unlike the harpy that birthed Allen. Or maybe Allen's dad taught him that women weren't worth listening to unless they had a few French-Tunisian insults to teach.

Actually, the latter is probably true.

5. So, he would get the immediate death penalty for "inciting a riot"
you know, a "lynching" ... he was the darkest person in the room ... wasn't he the only darker skinned person in the room? They don't seem to be very discriminating when it comes to discriminating against a "black" (play on words intended) ...
