He said his grandfather's incarceration by the Germans had a profound effect on his mother; that because it was a painful memory, it was almost never discussed. "Some may find it odd that I have not probed deeply into the details of my family history, but it's a fact," Allen said in his statement. Speaking with The Times-Dispatch, Allen said the disclosure is "just an interesting nuance to my background." He added, "I still had a ham sandwich for lunch. And my mother made great pork chops."

His comments are quite bizarre, to see the least. Why does he need to use 'ham sandwich and port chops' as metaphor to distance himself from his Jewish heritage? This is gettint really weird.
The MSM is setting up the trap for Allen, his response yesterday was terrific, but he is just unable to stop this 'foot-in-mouth' disease.
Thanks God, we know sooner rather than later, he is not ready for prime time.
This isn't the correct title.
Why is this foot-in-mouth? it was a stupid no win question he handled it fine and my guess is there will be a backlash for him.
If you're going to quote an article at least use the correct title, with YOUR comment in parenthesis.
I don't get it, where is the offensive part?
Here's an idea...why not go to conservative websites and post articles that make it appear that you're a conservative and questioning your own candidate for the sake of the party or the nation or all humanity? Wouldn;t that be really snarky?
Hey, I didn't post it.
You stink junior...

Why do you guys hate the JOOOOS?
I don't understand why anybody would get upset over what he said. It's just a case of the media trying to make a story.
However, the whole purpose of exercises like this are establishing how the candidate works under pressure.
Welcome to FreeRepublic.
Not so cute, troll.
dude he lives in Virginia for god's sake
they eat lots of pork chops and make a damn good Virginia ham
that statement will pick up votes
Welcome to FR newby
does indeed look like a media hit. Allen's comment was equally stupid though. running from his heritage? nah. he claims not to have known. my question is if his mother knew this, and knew he had political aspirations, why didn't she tell him eariier?
Here's a thought - there's a lot of fear over George Allen as a potential presidential candidate so it's important to convince conservatives that he can't win. Here's another thought - you ain't that clever.
Go back to Raising Kaine, Lowell.
