Allen: I'm No Jew Boy, I Eat Pig!


George Allen is the worst politician I've ever seen.

A slightly barbed question about his grandfather's Jewish heritage could have been shot down with the easy reply, "Yes, my grandfather was Jewish. In fact he was jailed by the Nazis in North Africa. But my mother and myself were raised to believe in the divinity of Jesus, who is my personal Lord and savior." But instead, the question made Allen sputtering mad, and he egged on the crowd to boo the reporter who dared to ask.

Now, suddenly, he's trying to make peace with his past, acknowledging his Jewish ancestry, but making it clear that the Kosher buck stopped with grandpa: "I still had a ham sandwich for lunch. And my mother made great pork chops," he said.

James Webb just may be the luckiest Democrat ever to walk the earth.
