No. I'm just...I don't know. I had some immediate skepticism yesterday. It just seems that they'll latch on to any negative thing they can relate to Obama, regardless of the veracity of the claim. You'd think that before they'd associate themselves with something this inflammatory (or, something that could backfire so soundly if it wasn't true), they'd make sure it was true before associating themselves with it. I guess I continue to give them too much credit, which believe me, is very little.

And really, what robber is going to stand there and carefully scratch something into someone's skin without cutting? Um, none. They'd be in too much of a hurry to get away, especially when it was in a public place.

Developing ...

Police sources tell KDKA television in Pittsburgh that 20-year-old John McCain campaign volunteer Ashley Todd has admitted to lying to them about being mugged and attacked by a man who carved a "B" into her cheek after seeing a McCain bumper sticker on her car. Todd is expected to face charges for the false report, according to KDKA.


From foxnews.

Not only was the fictional attacker a "black man," but he was a "dark-skinned" "black man." Man, that's the worst kind!

True, but she managed to take a picture of it after the fact AND upload it to the internet. At the very least:

Start> Programs> Accessories> Paint> Image...> Flip Horizontal

Come on now. She wasted the police department's time, McCain's time in putting out a statement and the entire country's time in her little stunt to make Obama supporters look bad. And if Matt Drudge wants a smidgen of credibility he should denounce this on his website as fast as he put it up.

I'm about ready to call this chick a terrorist for inciting fear of black people in the Pittsburgh area. Complete racist bullshit. This kind of garbage really pisses me off.
Do you know that my boss had this horrible macro up on his wall of Obama shining Palin's shoes? Yeah, everyone had a good laugh about it in the office until my boss' gun went missing and he had to call the cops to report it. I've never seen my boss run faster than when he ran into the office to yank that poster down because it was a black police officer coming in to file the report for him.
I wish his racist ass would have been caught, honestly.

^I normally don't check the SludgeReport, as I like to call it, but I did after the story broke, and he has it on his front page.

Ah okay, I didn't see it a little while ago. Now I give him some credibility.

That is fucked up. Isn't there any workers' rights place he can be reported to?

"She was upset with the media for blowing this into a political firestorm."

This doesn't even make sense.

This story has more detail.

I've had several people tell me that I have a lawsuit if I want it, but I think frivolous lawsuits do more harm than good and seeing as how I will be quitting next week anyway (not related) I'm not going to bother even saying anything.

That's too bad. I'm upset that she's a delusional, racist asshole. We all have our pet peeves.
