George Allen, Gone

One of the greatest things about this election victory is the destruction of George Allen. Allen was a huge threat--his similiarities to Bush were remarkable, from charisma to a lack of obvious intelligence. Allen is more overtly racist than Bush, but the Republican base is hardly turned off by that. Allen was clearly running for president in 2008 but his own foolishness did him in. This is a huge relief. He might have had a real shot of winning it all in '08, especially considering his close ties with the base.

Thank God the political career of George Allen is dead.
