Pants on Fire!

Beginning last night the blogosphere has been aflutter with the story of Ashley Todd, a 20-year-old from Texas, who is volunteering in Pittsburgh for McCain. Ashley Todd reported to local officials last night that she was mugged by a "tall black man," presumably named Barack Obama. According to Todd, she gave the mugger roughly $60 in cash. But, when the assailant noticed the McCain bumper sticker on her car, he proceeded to knock her to the ground and carve a "B" in her face.

Only one problem: She made the whole thing up.

The police, presumably secret Muslims themselves, found inconsistencies in Miss Todd's story. Namely, the ATM she claimed to be at showed no video footage of her there at the time in question. Eventually, the elitist Pittsburgh Police force requested Miss Todd to submit to a polygraph test. And while the results of that test have not yet been revealed, Miss Todd herself confessed to fabricating the story shortly thereafter.

What could possibly be gained from a fair white girl getting accosted by a tall black man becoming a national story? Why would anyone make such a story up? And furthermore, how could a story like that possibly alter the current political climate?

She should have carved a C.

I cannot believe that you failed to mention:

(1) How this whole story got started, i.e. the McCain campaign leaking it to the press because they heard about it from some nitwit College Republican.

(2) How I TOTALLY FUCKING CALLED IT! I was light years ahead on this story.

The backwards "Fail" made me laugh really hard, though.

I'd like the record to show that Haplo called bullshit on this story, before most people had even heard of this story.
