Sen. George Allen (R-Va.) has been out of the public eye for two years, and I’d forgotten how he can reduce everything to a football metaphor. An example, from his pitch for Republicans to be more tolerant of immigration:
I grew up in a football family. In sports, what you have is a level playing field… you don’t care about race, all you care about is who can help you win. Team America has to have that same competitive spirit!
Allen asks the room to think about what Americans are “saying around the kitchen table”–shades of Joe Biden. Unlike Biden, he suggests Republicans push “the energy issue, even though it might be number three” in polls of their priorities. “There is no single silver bullet. We need silver buckshot!”
