Macaca Gang Fights in Parliament
Former Virginia government and senator George Allen was caught on tape introducing an Indian descendant stalker from his opponent (Jim Webb)'s campaign the 'Macaca', and subsequently lost his 2006 reelection campaign as well as his once hailed presidential aspiration. Allen was not the first career politician stepped on his own foot for telling the truth, but he was in the first one stabbed by the YouTube phenomena. The one seat flip also tipped the balance of the Senate and gave control to the Democrats.
Well, there could be time when (even domesticated) macacas find it hard to cover their tails. Had camera phones been allowed in Indian Parliament by 2006, Allen probably could have a chance to prove his point. Now Allen is probably rolling all over in his retiree housing.;-)
