BREAKING: McCAIN CUT-NUT MADE IT UP!

by Ken Layne

So many Blingees to be made!KDKA in Pittsburgh reports this BREAKING NEWS item: “A Pittsburgh police commander says a volunteer for the McCain campaign who reported being robbed and attacked near a bank ATM in Bloomfield has confessed to making up the story. Police say charges will be filed.” Ah HA HA HA HAH HAH. Do not try to bullshit Wonkette, people! It might work on old Gullible McDrudge, but not here. Good work, cut-nut! [KDKA]

Ha!! This is great, although I really wish it happened later in the day so Palin could bring this asshat up 50 times at her rally, talking about what a tragedy it is.

Rodney Badger October 24, 2008 at 1:31 pm

*ahem* “If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain’s quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting.”

So let it be written, so let it be done.

We love you Ashley, and still support your cause. Don’t let the anti-christ followers get you down.

NOOOOO! I love this story! I don’t want it to end. Sad.

mdotsota October 24, 2008 at 1:32 pm

And so ends Ashley Todd’s moment in the sun. Let us reflect.

Oooooooohh chiiiiild, things are gonna get easy-uuuurrrrrr

Okay, now let’s laugh.

WonderWomyn October 24, 2008 at 1:32 pm

The story you linked doesn’t say she made it up or confessed. I need to verify that this story is a total hoax before I start making fun of her IRL.

edgydrifter October 24, 2008 at 1:33 pm

SHOCKING. I am literally in shock, litearally. What is up? What is down? Reality is spinning and crumbling all around me.

“B” is for BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Serolf Divad October 24, 2008 at 1:33 pm

I don’t understand it… her story was no less believable than the McCain campaign, in general.

Miller October 24, 2008 at 1:34 pm

Who could have foreseen this, it was all so credible. The backwards B, the black eye doctors called fake, the fact that her story continually changed, her remembering nothing except for all those details that made it politically motivated, and how nothing she said matched security footage or eyewitness accounts. It’s just so amazing and plausible and I can’t believe she was a liar.

You can put lipstick on a pig, but if you do it in the shape of a backwards B, everyone will know the pig did it to herself.

Iggy Plop October 24, 2008 at 1:35 pm

this is still not going to dent the wingnuts maddening denial of basic reality. i’m sure the story will have some kind of racist half-life in on-line commentary for weeks to come.

Neon Trotsky October 24, 2008 at 1:35 pm

Now she personally has DOOMED the McCain campaign for good! As libtards blamed Nader in 2000, let Republicans blame Ashley “B” Todd n 2008…

GreatLakesNation October 24, 2008 at 1:35 pm

HAHA! You are an evil evil woman. May God have mercy on your soul, Ashley.

By the way, where is Ms. Noonan today – did I miss her??

totoro October 24, 2008 at 1:37 pm

If she doen’t flag her *ss back to Texass in a hurry she’s won’t have to make up a story about being smacked up in Pittsburgh. Unfortunately for her, she might be spending some time in a Pittsburgh pokey explaining herself to some actual muggers. Lets hope they do thorough pat-downs at the PPD lock-up. The great irony here is that she’ll likely be in jail on election day instead of the polls. And, the irony, in line with the nice little Reconstruction compromise allowing Southern states to disenfranchise blacks by arresting them, she cant vote anymore.

Dr. Zoidberg October 24, 2008 at 1:38 pm

God bless the librul media! I mean, Wonkette!

Wow, how pathetic is this poor thing. I kinda wish, too, that this story had had longer play, so the McFailin campaign and FauxNews would have had more time to bring it up.

Ah, well.

Tommy Says Soooo October 24, 2008 at 1:38 pm

I’m surprised Drudge didn’t run Hopey kissing a white woman beside this story.

Mara47 October 24, 2008 at 1:42 pm

I wrote to Moody at Fox News and got a reply. Heres what I wrote: “Sir, with all due respect to your position (and I wish you respected it more), I think your comments about that pitiful Ashley Todd were unncessarily inflammatory and devisive. What does the alleged incident in Pittsburg have to do with how much voters do or don’t know about Barack Obama? How can you possibly justify your reasoning for such a statement without admitting to race-baiting? I hope you and Fox News will make your apology for this assault on reason as prominent as you’ve made the assault itself.”

Whomever answers his mail wrote back: “As soon as you apologize for misspelling Pittsburgh.”

So I did. And now, I’m holding him to his promise. Everybody hold your breath now.

LuxMentis October 24, 2008 at 1:43 pm

I almost feel sorry for her. Almost. Yet I feel nothing but contempt.

She is a, intentionally or otherwise, a race-baiting liar and deserves to be prosecuted for these spurious claims.

Hamster October 24, 2008 at 1:43 pm

I think it’s believable, yea, and Karl Rove promised to take her to the RNC halo ween parta. He’s gonna stick his head up her ass and wear her like a hat.

HuskyMescan October 24, 2008 at 1:43 pm

I can’t find it, but someone a few weeks ago posted a youtube of Porky pig laughing his ass off. I think that would appropriate at this time.

Actually, this election has done some good. The right wing bloggers are so sick and tired of covering for McCain everytime he reverses field that they’re starting to approach all of this nonsense with extreme caution. Michelle Malkin was one of the first to say ATodd didn’t pass the smell test.

This better blow up on a national scale. Drudge kicked this shit in to the national media stratosphere and I want to shit to hit the fan on a national level. Mother fuckers all of them. When will this damned election be over? You’ve LOST WALNUTS! Give it up.

Good. Now that everyone has figured out what occurred, the wingnuts can get on with the difficult work of figuring out what really happened. After all, the “B” was backwards – what could the large black man have meant when he carve the first initial of his islamoverlord on her? What don’t the libruls want to know the answers to such troubling questions? Who gains from this cover-up?

Filing a false report is a 2nd degree misdemeanor and carries a penalty of up to two years in prison. But she’ll probably get much less than that. A fine, some community service, maybe a short stint in jail. She will carry the shame and humiliation with her forever, though.

[re=147088]Gopherit[/re]: I couldn’t find the “victim” reference at Drudge, but two items there bothered me enough to comment on. One is a poll with some past success showing Obama and McCain a point apart; not likely, but still disconcerting to see.
Much more disconcerting was a Gallup poll that showed 75 percent of 18-24 voters are waiting until election day, while a much higher percentage of seniors will vote early. That gives the weatherman a huge sway over results in battleground states, with advantage to McCain’t, who should do best with seniors. An election day ice storm in Pennsylvania and Ohio, and things could get uncomfortable.
Young people need to learn the old Chicago saying about elections: vote early, vote often. I’m sure that many a fine Chicago ancestor will punch a card for Barry, but we need the kids, too.

I wonder if she specifically wanted to make campaign news, or whether this is somebody with a richly developed case of Munchausen’s Syndrome who thought making it political might get her a bit more attention. I suppose, either way, it’s all come to pass.

I blogged last night on some off the wall rightie sitey I stumbled on like a lying sociopath looking for a Pittsburgh ATM (wasting way too much time on this hobby). I joked to this hostile room that the Ashley story probably wasn’t exactly precisely true and laughed at the racists on the site who bought it without hesitation and tweaked them about “hey, Obama is about to be your president so you better get used to it.” Some Klannish lady responded to my post that “you obviously don’t know what it’s like to have a large man who’s 5x stronger than you hold you down and carve your face.” And I was thinking, Scarlett, girlfriend, you have one active fantasy life.

And it suddenly hit me: the story was widely believed because all those Scarletts out there WANTED to believe it, because something about the fantasy made them go, like, all wiggly. I learned something about righty Klangirls last night: a lot of them are going to secretly vote for Barack. So don’t be surprised if his victory in Real America is even more virile and potent than expected.
