This is Ashley Todd, a McCain campaign volunteer from Pittsburgh. She made the national news Thursday night/Friday morning because a "big black man" robbed her, and then, seeing the McCain - Palin bumper sticker on her car, beat her up and carved a "B" onto her face. The "B" of course, was for Barack. That big black Barack supporter was going to show her, by god.
Except it didn't happen. It was a hoax. It was a lie. She is now under police custody.
I'm no detective, but I knew it was bullshit when I saw the backwards "B". Either she was attacked by one of the Little Rascals, I thought to myself, or she carved it into her own face while looking in a mirror.
How fucking stupid is this bitch? And how stupid was McCain's Pennsylvania Communications Director for calling every media outlet on Earth, telling the scary tale before he knew all of the facts? Even right wing blogger Michelle Malkin knew this was horseshit, but that didn't stop Matt Drudge, Sean Hannity, and other sleaze merchants from treating this as absolute fact.
Yeah, sorry about your luck Mr. Pennsylvania Communications Director, Matt Drudge, Sean Hannity, and assorted far right wingnuts. Your scare tactics didn't work this time.
