Warner/Allen Ad: Less Than Good

Well, I guess Elizabeth Taylor taught Senator Warner a thing or two about acting.

That was a hell of a balancing act. It was almost like two different commercials spliced together. Warner thinks we need a change in Iraq and Warner likes George Allen. The ad was an attempt to conflate those two things to fool people into thinking that George Allen may be open to a change in Iraq policy.

Let's be clear, on the most important issue of the day, Iraq, John Warner is closer to Jim Webb's position than he is to George Allen's. George Allen will only change his position on Iraq when George Bush does and we can't count on that.

My wife (who is Republican) had the initial impression that Warner/Allen were trying to evoke fear and that Warner was begging to keep his chairmanship. Pretty sound analysis I would say.

I think this ad was another waste of money. These things just aren't going to move people at this point. Most people have already made up their minds. It will come down to getting Webb voters to the polls.

Mark Warner is going to campaign vigorously for Jim Webb until election day, including in SWVA. This will have more impact that one canned ad from Senator Warner. I'm sure John Warner will not be out on the stump campaigning for Allen. That could also make the difference in this close race.

PS: Oh yeah, and "cut government spending"? In what parallel universe did that happen?

George Allen is a racist, misogynistic, self-hating Jew, who despises blacks, minorities, women, and gays. This can all be overwhelmingly proven by facts that are abundantly covered all over the internet, television, and in the printed media.

He is all the more dangerous because as a Jew he should know better. But then again, Adolph Hitler was exactly like him.

If the American people in Virginia elect this monster, then it is an indication that we as a nation have learned nothing from 200 years of fighting racist, misogynistic, sexist, megalomaniacs like Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Pinochet, etc in countless wars that have killed tens of millions of Americans.

A victory for George Allen in Virginia, the heartland of the United States, would officially mean the end of America as we know it, and the open beginning of a tyrannical, elitist, oppressive, despotism that our Founding Fathers ran from Europe in order to flee.

In other words, America as we know it, and what it stands for, will officially be defunct and finished.
