Senator Allen made a non-apology for his remarks, claiming that he was misunderstood.
That's doubtful. In some parts of Europe, the word he used to refer to the dark-skinned campaign volunteer is as bad as the "N-word" here in the states. Allen's mother is very French and proud of it. He knew exactly what he was saying.
If this doesn't sink his re-election chances, I'll be very disappointed in Virginians.
