George Allen says people don't care about "Macaca" slur
You'll forgive me for losing track of exactly how sorry Sen. George Allen (R-Va) is for calling a young American citizen "macaca" (a racial slur that literally translates as "macaque") and "welcoming" the Virginia native to America.
Allen's contrition fluctuates day by day. Some days he's really sorry, some days, he's defiant, now he's back to it's no big deal.
Yesterday on Fox, Allen told Neil Cavuto:
That remark I made was a mistake. I have apologized for it. But people care Ã¢â‚¬â€ only the media asks about it.Actually, 67% of Virginians think that Allen's comment was inappropriate and half think he ought to say more about it.
