Macaca TreatmentBorn fighting persona? Macaca frenzy? The beaners in the boonies will be able to relate to Webb's stupidity?
Richmond Times-Dispatch editorial
An aide to Virginia's Jim Webb recently tried to enter a U.S. Senate building with a loaded pistol. Authorities charged him with the illegal possession of an unregistered firearm.
Webb called the aide's action an "oversight." We agree. Wits called the poor fellow half-cocked. Yesterday's scuttlebut said the gun belonged to Webb. The senator denied giving the weapon to his aide, and attributed the situation to a mixup involving cars.
The incident complemented Webb's born-fighting persona. Yesterday had moments resembling a macaca frenzy.
Cynics might consider the whole thing a ploy to shore up the Democratic senator's sagging standing in Virginia's rural regions. (link)
