He apparently really loves YouTube and the internet and defends Fred Thompson's use of a negative "attack ad" at the CNN YouTube debate thusly:

Allen: Why would you say it's negative? It's their own words.

Wow! He's apparently learned well from what did him in last November. After all that I would have sworn that we had seen the last of George Allen, but I would have been so wrong. Apparently Fred of Hollywood doesn't think Allen's macaca moment, the severed deer head story, his white supremicist buddies nor his widely reported proclivity for using the "N" word will become a noose around his campaign's neck, and unfortunately in the GOP primaries he's probably right. That's not all though. Allen even hints that may try to make a political comeback at some point in the future. In the meantime he'll apparently be dividing his time between stumping for Thompson and his duties as the presidential scholar for the Reagan Ranch (that figures).
