George Allen for President? NFW!

George Allen thinks his job in the Senate is boring. Poor baby. The New York Times says,
George Allen makes little secret that he is bored with life in the Senate.

"I made more decisions in half a day as governor than you can make in a whole week in the Senate," Senator Allen said earlier this month as he dashed into a recent Republican fund-raiser in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Over eggs and hash browns with a Republican crowd in Davenport, he lamented about being in the Senate, "It's too slow for me."
Unfortunately, those decisions he made as governor weren't that great. Mark Warner had to clean up his budget mess. But then Republicans love to whip out the credit card. Yep, George Allen is a credit card conservative. He also thinks he's
"a common-sense Jeffersonian conservative," which loosely translates into the Reagan credo of getting government off people's backs. "I trust free people and free enterprise," he says. "I don't like meddling, nanny or oppressive government."
Except he likes government meddling in the bedroom and gynecologist's office. The man has a record supporting the interests of the National Right to Life Committee and the Christian Coalition 100% of the time. If that doesn't convince you that he's a wingnut, check out his voting record vis-a-vis unConcerned Women of America(100%) and the John Birch Society (80%). As far as those rumors about racism, check out his record on civil rights. And he treats veterans like shit. The only thing Jeffersonian about George Allen is race relations. For some reason, Thomas "Wall between church and state" Jefferson would not have a 100% Christian Coalition voting record.
Fiscal conservatives seem to like him, but social conservatives are uneasy. "He's got a good voting record," said Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council, "but the question is how committed is he."
I am beginning think fiscal conservative means borrow and spend and has nothing to with actual fiscal sanity or responsibility. Dude have you actually checked his voting record? GEORGE ALLEN IS A FREAKING SOCIAL CONSERVATIVE!! He may run away from the label, but he belongs to the Jesus Freak crowd, they own him. Ask Tully Satre about Allen being a social moderate. George Allen is beholdened to the people who have no problem with unregulated gun ownership but think masturbation and sex toys will lead to the collapse of western civilization. I have news for them, they can have my jackrabbit when they pry it from my cold dead hands. (Hat tip: AMERICAblog) BTW, I think that Tony Perkins is helping George Allen run away from his social conservative record.

So anyhow, back to fisking:
Stuart Rothenberg, the editor of a nonpartisan political newsletter, has said that if Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush were put into a blender, you would come out with George Allen.
George Allen is the perfect combination of senility and stupidity! It's not manimals you need to be afraid of it's Reagan-Bush hybrids you need to be afraid of. Maybe that's why he's campaigning for his re-election to the Senate in Iowa, New Hampshire and anywhere but Virginia.

So who can save Virginia (and America) from George Allen? Who can save George Allen from six more boring years? James Webb! You can donate here at Act Blue.
