George Allen is a seasoned politician. Many might wish for someone more dramatic:

Consider, though, how stoically Allen handled the 2006 propaganda onslaught, led by the WaPo. Long before Cleaver and Clyburn smeared the Tea Party, George Allen was on the receiving end of 107 articles prior to that election with ‘macaca’ in the title. Lest you think this is a nit-pick, Jim Webb was an ObamaCare vote. (Hopefully Webb didn’t spend all 30 pieces of silver in one place.)

And thus he returns, cheerful, to face another former governor, who was proudly the first figure outside of Illinois to endorse Barach Obama.

I look to George Allen for the sort of leadership that is going to be essential, in support of Mitt Romney’s, to help get this country through the reckoning that will follow the Barack Obama’s final official ‘Uhhhhh…’ While we have some notion of the financial wrecking ball that Obama has been, my gut is that a sober, adult review is going to show that we’ve been Quantitatively Eased farther down the road to perdition than we realize. George Allen’s exactly the sort of fellow who will offer leadership for the country, whether or not my Eeyore prediction is borne out.

George Allen for Senate

Send Timmy back to the Commie farm team with Terry McAuliffe.
