Every time I see George Allen, I think of Bob Roberts:

"Take Three!" It's all about him. Oh the torture. You'd think he'd been waterboarded. Yeah Merry Christmas you peons. Are all politicians narcissists? Ugh.

There's really nothing untoward in that video. He didn't flip the bird to the camera or anything, he just expressed frustration with having to record the same message numerous times. I find that kind of thing annoying as well.

Based on what you wrote, I expected him to say something incredibly stupid. The camera just rolled on after he finished, and he sounded just...like...a guy who'd finished a spot. There was nothing.

I don't Allen or his politics, and the "macaca" moment came none too soon, IMO. but I've no idea what you're saying here that's so harmful to his career.
