George Allen: Macaca

Rumors of George Allen’s not-so-racially-enlightened past percolated through the 2006 campaign for Virginia’s U.S. Senate seat. (Well, not exactly rumors: he kept a noose hanging from a ficus tree in his office as part of his “memorabilia” collection.) But the meme didn’t take hold until Allen was caught on tape at a campaign rally calling the cameraman—an opposition staffer named S. R. Sidarth—“macaca,” a racial slur common in Allen’s mother’s native Tunisia.
