A Conservative's Take on Allen

The inept George Allen literary criticism campaign is a few news cycles past, but this was too good to pass up.

Being firmly on the right, my friend Scott Galupo is rarely right. But he's got a talent for a fine turn of phrase.

Take his take on the Allen-Webb literary kafuffle:

George Allen is an opportunistic philistine.
What other conclusion to draw from the senator's outrageous cherry-picking of "underage sex scenes" in his opponent James Webb's novels?
...
This latest salvo would be silly, if it weren't so demeaning -- not to women, as Allen would very much like us to believe of Webb's fiction writing, but rather to the basic idea of narrative art.
...
What I know for sure is that is I can't now vote for Allen in good conscience.

Amen, brother.
