Okay, I’ve largely sworn off politics for the blog and will see if I can keep that up through the mid term elections. But I thought the George Allen thing was so funny and revealing that I had to put it up. Maybe my perspective is warped because I am reading Philip Roth’s The Plot Against America right now, but I though t that clips was pretty damning. I mean, he responds to being asked if he has Jewish relatives by accusing the questioner of “spreading aspersions” about him.

But apparently this interpretation is not widely held. Several people have emailed me to say they think the jerk, er Senator wasn’t so off base. So what do I know? What do you think?
