A Little Bitter

National Review's John J. Miller wasn't keen on the Allen Senate campaign. While this isn't news (I was, too), his biggest beef was Allen's attack on Webb's stance regarding women in combat. Miller thought it silly, preferring instead to slap the shop-worn "Liberal" label on Webb (as in "too Liberal for Virginia" -- catchy, if you're stuck in 1980).

But today, Miller reaches deep into his rhetorical bag of tricks and presents a real that is bitter and catty at the same time. In response to a reader's suggestion that Allen run for Senate in 2008 (assuming John Warner retires), Miller states:

If he runs for Senate in 2008, I predict that he will put on a dress and campaign as a woman.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man
