On December 20, 2011, Republican U.S. Senate candidate George Allen held an online townhall meeting over Facebook. At the peak, only 35 people were watching, many of whom were probably Allen's political staffers, and by the end there a lot fewer. So, almost nobody was watching as Allen, who thought the camera was turned off, complains about how "torturous" the experience of speaking to voters was, jokes about "reindeers" and "elves in the servers," sarcastically says "let's do this tomorrow!," comments about the "great spontaneity" ("TAKE THREE!"), and asks, "what do you reckon it was for me?" in response to a comment about how "nervewracking" the experience was. So George, if it's so painful for you to speak to Virginia voters, if you hate it so much (just like you hated the U.S. Senate), why on earth are you running for U.S. Senate again? Nobody's forcing you to, right?
