George Allen's 11th Annual Hoe Down

Ho, hoe, ‘ho. Blender Rob in Richmond passed along this bit of business. Foot-in-mouth, confederacy-lovin’ Virginia Senator George “Macaca” Allen wants to rake in some buxxx with a Hoe Down featuring winger comic relief, Laura Ingraham.

The country shindig is coming up on Saturday, October 7th, in Maidens, Virginia. Hopefully that’s outside any city limits in case any crosses are burned at the festivities.

You can sign up for the Hoe Down as:

* El Ranchero Grande – $10,000
Special Recognition at the Hoe Down
6 guests to the Hoe Down and Private Reception

* Ranch Boss – $5,000
Special Recognition at the Hoe Down
5 guests to the Hoe Down and Private Reception

4 guests to the Hoe Down and Private Reception

* Buckaroo – $1,000

Remember, this is the man who displayed a Confederate flag in his living room while campaigning for governor in 1993. He also kept a noose hanging on a ficus tree in his law office, according to an article in TNR. Allen’s explanation was that it was “part of a Western memorabilia collection.”
