As always, the media has been largely silent from what I can tell over this issue. Nothing surprises me about that. It does make me wonder though what would happen if the tables were turned. If Allen's new media coordinator Jon Henke had said something even remotely this "offensive", it would be front page news in every major newspaper in the Commonwealth; not to mention dems from all across the state would be calling for his dismissal and a formal apology from George Allen himself.
Under our current situation, Jim Webb is silent on the issue and the dems are passing it off as sour grapes and feined offensiveness from the Republicans. Isn't it wrong no matter who says or does it? Isn't the letter from the ethnic rally's organizers enough to prove the outrage? When will dems get called out for saying racially and ethnically offensive comments? Its a double standard.
If George Allen's comment was a scandal, then a Webb staffer calling minorities monkeys should be one too.
