Because We Should, We Can, We Do

There's a bit of a flap developing over George Allen calling a follower of his opponent a "macaca". This term is apparently a North African slur against black people, comparing them to monkey's.

The Allen campaign is trying to sell his slur as a comment about the guys mohawk haircut (no, the guy doesn't have a mohawk haircut but that never stops the Republicans from just making shit up).

But consider this. Allen either meant it as a slur (likely), or he doesn't know how to say "mohawk" (possible). In the case of the latter, Allen simply demonstrates what we already know ..... that Allen is a dumb as a rock. The guy makes Bush look like a genius .... and that's really really hard to do.
