Say Goodnight, Macaca


Has anyone else noticed that Jon Tester and Jim Webb, the golden boys of the Libertarian Democrats, are running against Burns & Allen? I'm glad to see George Allen proving himself every bit as ditzy as his namesake, but I'm disappointed in Conrad Burns, who seems intent on playing an airhead too. I thought Republicans knew the value of a good straight man.

When it comes to the comic stylings of Montana senators, give me Burton "Bert" Wheeler. When he wasn't fighting FDR's court-packing plans, he was doing a double act with Robert Woolsey.
