George Allen is Out to Lunch

In all of his campaigning for the 2008 GOP presidential nomination, it seems George Allen has forgotten that he has to run for reelection to the United States Senate this fall.

There has been quite a bit of talk inside the Beltway about George Allen's strong position in the race for the Republican nomination in two years as the conservative anti-McCain candidate (of course, one must remember that the Washington press corps does not understand that McCain, himself, is a fierce conservative). And Allen has been reading his press clippings, focusing not on his reelection bid in Virginia and instead on caucus voters in Iowa and primary voters in New Hampshire. Sheryl Gay Stolberg has the story for The New York Times.

George Allen makes little secret that he is bored with life in the Senate.
"I made more decisions in half a day as governor than you can make in a whole week in the Senate," Senator Allen said earlier this month as he dashed into a recent Republican fund-raiser in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Over eggs and hash browns with a Republican crowd in Davenport, he lamented about being in the Senate, "It's too slow for me."

Virginia voters will no doubt be interested to find out that Allen is apparently not interested in serving another term in the Senate.

The Dems should pray that the Repubs run him. He has all the charisma and appeal of a post.
I agree.
