"Jew" Defeated for Senate? George Allen -- aka Macacawitz -- Behind Webb in Virginia

We ordinarily consider the loss of a senate seat by a Jew a setback. I'm not sure how to score this one.

"Jew" George Allen aka Macacawitz lags at this time behind Jim Webb in the Virginia senate vote. Chances are good that the state will certify the election on the 11/27 for Webb and that Allen will demand a recount.

The ambivalence for the Jewish community in this case stems from Allen, who was raised Christian, admitting to his Jewish roots during the race after it was revealed by others.

PS: It's a good bet that several Jewish lawyers will be involved in the post certification appeals processes.
