Over at The Corner, Tim Graham blogs on Senator Allen's Macaca remark. I agree with everything Graham said. The press blows up every GOP racial screw up, but Biden's Dunkin Donut remark or Hillary Clinton's gas station remark, barely a whimper.
Nevertheless, I have to add that this incident makes me question very seriously Allen's judgment. First, Allen's past on racial issues has long been fodder for the Democrats and the mainstream media (but I repeat myself.) Second, surely Allen must be aware of The New Republic's scurrilous article from earlier this year--so he should be on high alert for anything that even smacks of racial insensitivity. Finally, Allen made these remarks to a gent who was running a video camera!
