George Allen: African-American??

George Allen...an African-American?

That seems to be the latest Republican talking point.  It goes like this according to two callers in a row on a DC talk radio show this morning.  George Allen's mother is Tunisian, an African country.  That makes George an African-American.  So it must be that when he used the "N-word" it was just locker room banter from an African-American and should not be judged by the same standard as a regular white guy of European descent.

I laughed at first, but the second caller pushed the above reasoning too.  These folks certainly are creative.  By this standard Allen is a white, Jewish, African-American and immune from any charge except anti-Hispanic bias (until it comes out that some of his family was from Mexico

Senator Macacawitz really desperately needs to be given the boot.
