Hurt Feelings

Karol Sheinin has a post on MM's blog about a new kerfuffle involving George Allen having called some malaka a "macaca". Or do I mean he called some macaca a "malaka"? Now I'm not sure. But "malaka" is a sorta crude term of endearment, meaning, sort of meaning, in a sense: "wanker". I suppose, because it's a little crude, you won't get anyone to admit one way or the other which word the senator was looking for.

Anyway, the wanker that was called the name is an Indian. I'm not sure if that's an India Indian or American Indian, but the pertinent organizations promptly grabbed their chests and collapsed to the floor in howling pain. Gasping, "white... man .... words..hurt ... getting dim... can't see..." (bunch of malakas)

When one of the wailing aggrieved was asked for specifics though (via Rich Lowry):

Asked what macaca means, Mukherjee said: "What it means, I don't know. But it's going to cause him some grief."


***Update: Forgot the wiki link: Malakas


Macaca said...

Oh, it's definitely causing his some grief. Because "macaca" is either a monkey or it's a racial slur used in Europe. You'd think Allen's tunisian roots and french fluency would have kept him from muttering the slur.

Watch the video! Sen. Allen's comments were unbelievable. Reminded me of being a "Jungle Bunny" in third grade.

In any case, I made up some funny t-shirts and other stuff to celebrate the end of Allen's campaign. Thought you might want to check it out.

I'm donating 30% of the profit to Allen's competitor, Democratic candidate Jim Webb.

Yassu malaka!!

Sheesh, that is such a load of crap.

But I am so impressed with your enterprising (and republican, btw) spirit that I'll let the being-a-load-of-crapiness slide. You took the name, set up the merchandise, searched out forums to post on, and got your advertising up in a darned impressive time.

Good luck with it.
