Today, he's out of work.
But on the bright side, he's found a place in the dictionary -- as a verb. From Carrie Budoff at Politico.com:
"In Republican campaign strategy sessions and conference calls, candidates and consultants are invoking Allen's name as a verb -- to be 'George Allen-ed' -- and devising tactics to avoid a fate similar to that of the former Virginia senator, taken down by a shaky, 51-second video that volleyed around the country via YouTube."Candidate classes now warn politicians to expect a recording device is always watching them.
But, remember, we're talking about politicians -- the folks who've given us budget deficits, page scandals, and that whole Iraq War.
Sit back and enjoy YouTube -- they'll forget about the cameras quickly enough. (Politico)
