Political campaigns in the future are going to have to have massive vetting processes to get the exhibitionists out.

McCain's eyes are going to roll.

Extrapolating from that, we know Obama isn't going to leave the campaign at this juncture to help nurse her over the sniffles, it must be VERY serious. People are generally at their worst when they're in the hospital, so why didn't he visit her then, why wait till she's sent home? About the only case where people are sent home and they're not better than before they were admitted is when there's nothing more that can be done, and they're essentially sent home to die, with their family around them. Especially common in the elderly.

Anyone with critical thinking skills should have been able to figure that out from the initial report. I guess the conspiracy theorists needed it spelled out for them, though.

The VP of Faux News himself said that this thing could end up being the nail in the coffin for McRage. Now, obviously, this isn't his fault, but when undecided voters who aren't psycho, far-right wing nuts see what his supporters are willing to do in order to incite fear and possibly, even violence, towards Obama and his supporters, well, I think they might be pushed even further from him. It might not be fair, but that's the way the cookie crumbles.

CNN still has the story up, with no retraction.

Woman says attack on her linked to McCain bumper sticker - CNN.com

When McCain wants to talk about other issues he will be forced to make a statement. You would have to be one psycho to put a knife to yourself and bash your eye. Is this person partially suicidal?

From the cnn story:

Quote:
McCain spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker told CNN that McCain and running mate Sarah Palin "spoke to the victim and her family after learning about the incident earlier this afternoon."
I'm speechless.

Well, I don't think any mentally stable person would do that to themselves. Then again, as we've all seen there seems to be quite a few McCain supporters who are a few fries short of a Happy Meal.

From what I'd heard they spoke to her before we found out she made the the thing up, right? That's understandable. Is there a story that says they spoke to her after the truth came out too?

Jeez, I didn't think this story had actually been more than a blip on the radar, but I guess it's even made it to the candidates themselves:

Quote:
The report of the attack Thursday prompted the Republican presidential candidate and his running mate, Sarah Palin, to call Todd expressing their concern. Barack Obama's campaign also issued a statement wishing Todd well and hoping the attacker would be swiftly brought to justice.


Here I am thinking that it's something that would be forgotten by day's end. I guess it still could be, but it seems to be picking up a little steam.

Guess I didn't watch enough tv today.
