Here’s an, um, unique response to the allegation that the young Sen. George Allen stuck a severed deer’s head in the mailbox of a black family. “George Allen hates the U.S. Mail,” according to Letter Carriers for Truth, which is proposing that the postal service go after Allen for vandalizing federal property, i.e., a mailbox. Or as LCT puts it, “This mailbox belonged to you and me … the federal taxpayer … and frankly I don’t like it when people go around sticking severed heads in my slot.”
