Sen. George Allen
“ This fellow here, over here with the yellow shirt, macaca, or whatever his name is. He’s with my opponent. He’s following us around everywhere. And it’s just great. ...Let’s give a welcome to macaca,
here. Welcome to America and the real world of Virginia.” –Republican Senator George Allen, R-Va., ridiculing a Virginia native of Indian descent, by using an ethnic slur referring to an Asian monkey.

And when you try to run away from that terrorist, you will trip over an illegal immigrant.’” —Former President Bill Clinton, on the 2006 Republican campaign.
