Don't count him out

Senator George Allen hisself.

I find it interesting that many people are thinking this is the end of George Allen's political career. I wouldn't be so swift to judgment.

The AP's lead to the story about the Senator's concession speach is a bit over the top:
Republican Sen. George Allen conceded defeat Thursday to Democrat Jim Webb, sealing the Democrats' control of Congress and the political downfall of a man once considered a White House contender.
Political downfall? The man lost one race; he didn't try and sleep with a male page.

I think Matthew Barakat, Associated Press Writer, ought to leave the over-the-top prose and punditing to us bloggers. He'd be better off sticking to documented facts and let us live in hyperbole, irony, and sarcasm.
