Verte and deep we sure could use y'all here in Virginia

The debate was pretty dull, but overall Allen's responses were typical Republican sound bytes, and Webb sounded much more authentic.

I agree it was dull


my concerns

Allen may appeal to a lot of Virginians


his answers were almost cliche GOP sound bites

3,000,000 got tax cuts

death tax death tax

and then on the physical appearance

Allen is taller, has darker hair,
(under his yarmulke)

I'm tired and just misread this thread as "George Allen and Jim Webb are dating."

I have a reminder notice on my day planner to go vote this week because I'll be absent during the elections. Can't wait be the first one to vote against this Allen character.

Might have been fun. Good luck, Virginia. Hoping to get rid of Santorum here.

Because Webb wrote an article that stated he believed women should not fight, go into combat in 1979, hardly makes him a misogynist, woman hater.

I'll bet many if not most women may have voted to keep women out of combat in 1979.

There may be more to justify your label, I just could not find it.


And we do have Allen calling "Macaca" now in 2006, not just in the 70s.

We had a debate in Michigan today as well - a gubernatorial one - but no one watched since our baseball team played in Oakland.

If Webb were running as a Republican - would you be giving him the same benefit of the doubt?
