Mel Gibson To Campaign With George Allen

After hearing that Republican Senator George Allen of Virginia disparaged a Democratic operative of Asian descent by calling him "macaca" at a campaign event, Hollywood actor and bigotry poster boy Mel Gibson this week promised to campaign with him.
"I'm not an anti-Semite just because I slur the Jews," said Gibson in a statement released by his publicist, Sy Goldberg. "And by the same token, Sen. Allen isn't a racist just because he calls a guy with dark skin an epithet used by French colonials in Africa to deride the natives.'
Gibson said it was "time for people to lighten up and get a sense of humor. Or do the Jews own that, too."
In other Gibson news, Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad -- who has sworn to eliminate Israel with nuclear bombs -- has reportedly banned the actor from visiting his country, saying that hosting Gibson might make him look bad.
