Batshit. That is really all I have left to say.
I believe I've already talked to everyone about dropping the subject as oscar has agreed to drop it himself. He has already been warned. Do I now need to start warning others about calling people batshit insane?

Funny thing though is were enslaved to them now that we've been being propped up by them for so long, for helping the US fund all of her social programs.

So what are we supposed to infer from this? That the attack was politically motivated? The theft of money was secondary to the political message?

Assuming the whole scratching the B on her face thing did indeed happen (I'm prone to be skeptical about that, unless I see evidence), does this mean that Obama's campaign was somehow to blame? Was Obama standing outside and failed to intervene, or to denounce the robber?

Uh, no. It was a robbery, perpetrated by an idiot. No more, no less.


Eta - just saw the picture above. But the rest of my post stands.

Just because the GOP holds onto stuff like Brawley for years and years, doesn't mean the rest of us do. I don't blame the Republicans for the shit crazy people do in their name.

Or are you thinking the GOP will be treated just like they treat others?

BUt in the picture, the B is backwards. It therefore may not even be a B, let alone have relation to Barack Obama. Where is the proof, or even any tiny shred of evidence that could possibly be proof?

And why "B" instead of "O"? Don't you think "Obama" would be the obvious choice over "Barack"?

I guess this idiot has already shown he doesn't have the best judgement in the world, so I suppose questioning his choice of initials is the least of our worries.

Good point. Either the assailant is dyslexic, or he had her on the ground and was situated near the top of her head when he did it. :csi:

The fact that it's backwards and she declined medical attention makes me think it's a hoax... Who has time to carve a 'B' while robbing someone? Why would they do a B and not an O? And why backwards? Unless you did it yourself in the mirror.

cuz u can interchange b with other words like b*tch and so on and so forth.

and o would look like a birthmark or whatever-if this story is true.

she should come out and do an interview, otherwise idiots like us will speculate.

Ken Jennings, a fine, upstanding member of the Mormon community, just voted for Obama! Imagine, a Mormon who's also a democrat.

Ken Jennings - Blog

Quote:
I just voted! Most counties in Washington have fled to the sanity of a mail-in ballot only system. Our ballots got here when we were on vacation last week, and last night I finally filled it out and sealed up the envelope. Five minutes, no three-hour wait in line.

Now I can either stick it in the mail, or drop it off at a nearby collection spot beginning next week. Last night we had my grandpa over for dinner, and he offered to drop it off for me. (During election weeks, he works at one of the few local polling places set aside for those who can’t/won’t vote by mail.) But then he found out I’d voted for Obama and joked that he might have to light my ballot on fire instead. Um, I think I’ll just handle this one myself, Grandpa…

Maybe she wanted evidence first before getting medical treatment. She didn't want it to heal too quickly like Kramer in Seinfeld.

when you get medical treatment for an assault, they record before and after pictures and details for evidence.

That poll is total garbage. I feel sorry that it gives false hope to Republicans.

In that poll, McCain leads Obama among 18-24 year olds by a split of 74-22.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
