Just to show you what a class act George Allen is:
For those of you who participated in the LiveStream open mic with Governor Allen last night, the technical difficulties were enough to make even the most average social media guy scream bloody murder. Allen kept his humor!
Of course, everyone’s favorite
socialist polemicist Lowell Feld didn’t see it that way:
Yesterday evening, George Allen held an online townhall meeting via Facebook. … Allen also jokes about “reindeers” and “elves in the servers,” sarcastically says “let’s do this tomorrow!,”
Anything to get into the Washington Post, eh?

$10 says the DSCC pushes this story… you watch. We’ll connect the dots for ya. Do I detect a scandal?
UPDATE x2: Allen staffers confirm the technical difficulties… said the server went down on three separate occasions. Ah well, gremlins. Whaddya do?
UPDATE x3: An unlikely ally… but deadly accurate.
That screaming noise you hear? Is Lowell Feld tearing out what little hair he has left on his head.
Let the blow back commence.
UPDATE x4: Meanwhile, video has been obtained of the rigorous training session Blue Virginia forces upon its contributors…
Bright, shiny objects folks. Welcome to a liberal’s worldview.
