Politicians can be so dumb.

What was he thinking????

George Allen calls a 20-year-old volunteer for his opponent, who is of Indian descent, a "macaca," which means monkey. I've never heard the term before, but I ain't buying that he didn't know what it meant. Shame on him.

It's ironic though that we demand such polite purity from our politicians when the political landscape is awash with derogatory name calling. Maybe we in the blogosphere shouldn't be so hypocritical and try to adhere to the standard we require of the ones who lead us.

Update: RCP has the video of Allen.
