Jimmy Webb Running for Senate in Taiwan?

The Washington Post reports on their favorite Republicrat trying to get past his embarrasing lack of knowledge about both Virginia and the U.S. Navy, by playing with maps:
Allen, who stumped Webb this summer during the first debate with a question about a port project on Craney Island in the Hampton Roads area, was left almost speechless Monday when Webb queried him about the Senkaku Islands off the coast of Taiwan. "I'll have to study it," a clearly baffled Allen said. Webb then lectured him about the island's strategic importance to Southeast Asia.
Webb seems to think that looking up some uninhabited islands on the other side of the world makes up for him (a former Navy secretary) not knowing about the Navy's largest refueling station.

It might work if he was running for office in Taiwan.
