Fox News: Race-Baiting Finished McCain

by Ken Layne

Surrender!Not that we’re going to start believing everything Fox News reports/decides, but you know that Ashley Todd cut-nut ghost-negro racist fantasy that thrilled America for a single night? According to the executive editor of Fox News, America’s White/Poor Family News Channel, “Senator McCain’s quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting.”

But there is still time to take it all back, as Fox News executive vice president John Moody wrote his gloomy prognosis this morning, when gullible people (Drudge, wingnuts, etc.) still believed Ashley Todd’s pathetic bullshit:

If Ms. Todd’s allegations are proven accurate, some voters may revisit their support for Senator Obama, not because they are racists (with due respect to Rep. John Murtha), but because they suddenly feel they do not know enough about the Democratic nominee.

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

There we go, then. Ashley Todd, an official representative of the Republican Party and a campaign worker in the critical battleground state of Pennsylvania, made a massive game-changing gamble for her candidate, John McCain — it was a perfect Willie Horton moment, but it was really a Tawana Brawley/Morton Downey Jr. moment, and it finished the life of this miserable racist Texas twat, Ashley Todd, who hoped to end the winning campaign of Barack Obama before he became America’s first (half) black president.

And instead of keeping a sane distance from this fishy fucking story until the facts were established, the McCain campaign jumped on this, with both McCain and Sarah Palin personally calling Ashley Todd and/or her family. They bought in.

The hypocrisy of the wingnuts is what kills me. The utter raging hypocrisy. They’re always screaming about Obama supporters being nuts who play the race card. Only nuts are see are wing nuts. Only race cards I see are played by wing nuts. Only screams of “kill him” are screamed by wing nuts. Fuck you, morans. Please leave the country when you lose in 2 weeks.

I’m glad that when I picked out an Obama yard sign, I chose “Texans for Obama.” In the back of my mind was the fear that another Texan would do something shameful, maybe even newsworthy. I never could have imagined someone doing something this sick and stupid though. I’m naive enough to hope that McCain and Palin called to ask “really?” Regardless, they both need to spend a hell of a lot of time condemning this now. The rest of their lives would be a good start.

Here’s what Moody really said, and I quote:

“If Obama’s baby mama story about Palin dumping a dead moose on her lawn with ‘niger lover’ written in lipstick on its butt turns out to be a hoax, the race-issue is forever tainted by bear-baiting and the Phillies–who are SO in the tank for Thomas the Tank Engine–will carry Tampa Bay.”

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

Yes. It was not in any way, shape, or form the fault of the network that spent the entire campaign screaming “terrorist,” called Michelle Obama a “baby mama,” and asked whether Colin Powell dancing meant he was getting ready to support Obama. Not even partially.

It was all the fault of a 20-year-old nutjob. That is all.

I am just waiting for some pyschotic tramp in Michele Bachman’s Minnesota district to carve a backwards “E” into her cheek (for Elwyn) and say that she was mugged by a wood nymph. I forsee self inflicted facial carvings all across the land.

I can’t wait for Keith Olbermann’s special comments here. I am not sure what segments fits: Worst Person in the World or Best Dumb Crimminal – because the backwards “B” is the funniest/stupidest thing ever and a clear giveaway that the dumb twat stood in front of a mirror and did it herself.

However, this whole incident has left the GOP floundering, as their next move was to have Sarah Palin carve an “O” into her forehead, and claim that she too had been attacked by a black man at the ATM at Saks.
