George Allen just conceded.
The Democrats officially control both houses of Congress.
Addendum: Put the !@#$ football away, George. This is a PRESS CONFERENCE at which you are conceding in a race for US SENATE. Have a little dignity.
1) From an email from Mater-Eater Lad: "To which I say, Welcome to the real American and the real Virginia, you racist sack of shit.'"
2) From further emails between the two of us:
SWMBO: "God, I hate football. Can you imagine any other sport (soccer, baseball, basketball, hockey, tennis, hunting, bowling) where a former player would think that it was OK to have a catch at a major news conference?"
MEL: "It'd be pretty funny if a candidate started throwing a bowling ball into the crowd.
Or if he was an archer, and just started winging arrows at people."
