    I know, what kind of jackass would just follow people around all day, every day, videotaping everything they do in order to gain a political advantage?

    Who's George Allen?

    You guys crack me up, you had to dig all the way back to 2006, to something a GOP said or did and that's evidence of what exactly.... I didn't respond to an event I knew nothing about. Congrats.

    Too much.

    What in sam hell is going on here?

    Hazlnut, there is no way you can defend what the congressmen did. Two snotty nosed brats came up to him, yeah so what? Doesn't give him Carte Blanche to do what he did, it's idiotic. I'm annoyed by every homeless person that comes up to me, asks me for change, and when I don't have it they tell me to go **** myself instead of god bless, doesn't mean I grab em in anyway way and say "who are you?".

    What the congressmen did was idiotic beyond belief, He should know better, come on guys, this is pretty much dead and gone, let the police decide if any wrongdoing has been done here.

    Not defending, just putting it in context.

    I like that he scared the piss out them, and I hope the story doesn't have legs.

    That was unclear from the video.

    And what kind of stupid ****ing question is that? "Supporting the Obama agenda." Friggin' idiots. Go back to school and learning something.
    Dumb question, followed by an even dumber response.

    Just another far-rightie partisan hit hack job sack of **** story...
    The only reason this is a story at all is because the Congressman reacted the way he did.

    Bottom line: You want to see the congressman, make a ****ing appointment, assholes.
    Having worked on Capitol Hill for a Congressman, I know firsthand that simply calling and asking for an appointment with the Congressman will not actually get you a meeting with the member. Most likely, if they got anything it would be with a junior staffer and they would get rehashed talking points. Could just as easily look those up online.

    He needs top resign, then be brought up on criminal charges.

    Yeah!! Damn those snot-nosed punks for asking questions of an elected official. Who in the hell do they think they are? American citizens, or something?

    Seriously? You never heard of the macaca incident?

    The point is that that was a situation where someone just followed a politician around all day, videotaping everything they did in order to gain a political advantage. Allen got angry and did something very stupid, sinking his presidential aspirations. I don't recall anyone defending Allen on the grounds that the staffer brought it on himself. That would have been laughable then, and it's laughable now.
