Macaca: Day 5
|Well, its friday. Friday is the day that stories traditionally die. If people want something to be forgotten they announce it on Friday afternoon (remember Porter Goss's resignation?). So, lets see if macaca will make it through everyone's booze addled weekend (I'm looking at you Russert, Stephanopoulos, and Schieffer).|
For now anyway...
Technorati top searches: #7 macaca, and "George Allen" has fallen out of the top 15. (But really, what can compete with "Snakes on a Plane"?)
Via Virginia Progressive: Op-eds in the Washington Post and the Richmond Times-Dispatch as well as a Letter to the Editor in The Free Lance-Star are not kind to the Senator.
My general sense is that people think this is going to get worse for Allen before it gets better (if it gets better). National money is starting to come in for Webb because people are seeing that he really does have a chance.
There's also an interesting article in the Christian Science Monitor about how YouTube is effecting this year's elections, and it starts with Allen.
More great press for the junior Senator here, here, and here.
