So now that I've spent two posts laughing at Maryland politics, what about the Senate race in Virginia?

Recently, there have been more allegations that Senator George Allen (http://tinyurl.com/qcxmj) had used racial slurs in the past. However, and this is why I don't like to talk about local politics, nobody cares.

Unlike Macaca (http://tinyurl.com/npa7e), or whatever his name is, I was not born and raised in Virginia. However, my wife's family is from "the real world of Virginia" on the other side of the Blue Ridge Mountains, We've been there a few times and if this is George Allen's base, he's not going to lose any steam over allegations of being a racist. The most racist statement I've ever heard came out of here and it wasn't even made in a fit of drunken rage (http://tinyurl.com/rx3on).

A history of racism may keep Allen off the national stage, but in the Commonwealth of Virginia, it's not not quite enough. Maybe after another generation. In the meantime, how about coming up with another strategy for booting out this jackass?
