Vance McAllister’s Dalliance With the English Language
Sure, he’s canoodler-in-chief NOW. But just a few short months ago, Rep. Vance McAllister was just another tongue-tied candidate spewing out muddled policy positions on social media.
Just days before the special election that would help bring the lip-locking Louisiana Republican to Washington, McAllister hit his Facebook flock with this doozy of a diatribe (mis)spelling out his positions on family, the Affordable Care Act, immigration and the federal budget.
Somewhere in the middle of that 340-odd word, run-on sentence (Grammar police, ho!) McAllister demands that the undocumented get with the program already and learn to “read, write, and speak English.”
Eschewing punctuation, however, does not appear to be a deal breaker in McAllisterland.

Confidence is low any of these critiques will reach McAllister anytime soon, given that the embattled pol has effectively ducked out on everyone .
