Values Voter Summit: George Allen as Media Victim

Virginia Senator, Senate candidate and presidential wannabe George Allen also got a warm ovation after being introduced as the victim of relentless attacks by the liberal media. He made an odd reference to the leaders of the main groups behind the conference as “The Four Horsemen” — he didn’t say Horsemen of what — and slipped into what sounded like a standard stump speech about protecting freedom, lowering taxes, restricting litigation, and preserving “foundational values” that are under attack by “unelected appointed-for-life federal judges.” He made the obligatory reference to marriage being between one man and one woman, and in what may have been a hint about his presidential ambitions, drew applause with a pitch for more Supreme Court justices like John Roberts and Samuel Alito.
