George Felix Allen, Jr. No 2 on the Worst Person in the World List!

No-shame Senator George Allen Embarrassed Virginians Again. But in one sphere, at least, George Felix Allen Jr. got his just desserts. He made No. 2 on Keith Olbermann's "Worst Person in the World weekly list tonight.

The latest chapter in the remorseless life of George Felix Allen, Jr, is that he can't earn recognition for bills or any other real accomplishments. He's too busy wishing he'd been born in Iowa and could leapfrog into the presidency without actually earning it. So he sets up dummy accomplishments, perfect for a hollow man. Just this week, Allen stole an amendment and took credit for it. That's right. George Felix Allen Jr., got a copy of an already printed and distributed amendment Democrat Dick Durbin (D-IL) had circulated last week! Allen pushed ahead in the lineup of speakers and tried to claim the amendment as his own. Is this high school? Oh, Yeh. It's real like and our nation's business is too important for his imbecile hijinks. But I digress.

Asking to speak before Senator Durbin, Allen introduced an amendment to the Department of Defense appropriations bill that would provide $19 million in additional funding for the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center program, which provides treatment care and research for veterans suffering from traumatic brain injuries.

Allen's amendment was identical in language to one that Senator Durbin was going to introduce immediately after Allen spoke with the exception of one word -- the word "will" was changed in Allen's amendment and replaced with the word "shall." Other than that, the amendments were identical -- Durbin's amendment had been printed and set to be formally introduced, Allen's bill had not been written or been placed on the docket to be introduced on the Senate floor.

George Allen has been AWOL in his useless search for the presidency. He'll never be president. Do nothing that he is, he even has to cheat to have a real record in the US Senate. On the other hand, Allen was all to happy to vote "No" on two veterans bills.

As noted on Allen voted against a motion “to ensure that future funding for health care for former members of the Armed Forces takes into account changes in population and inflation.” Refer to 10/6/05, Vote Number 251.

Allen voted against an amendment to increase funding for the Veterans Affairs Department by $1.98 billion. It would stipulate that $840 million be used for veterans regional health networks; $610 million be used to address the needs of servicemembers deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan; and $525 million be used to provide mental health care and treatment. Refer to 4/12/05, Vote Number 89.

He rubber stamps Bush's misleading Americans, warmongering, crony capitalism, and plundering of America's resources and finances. Allen is known for having a lynch noose in his office and his association with the white supremicist CCC. And now he can't even do his job in the Senate. How did anyone ever vote for the guy?
