Happy Halloween!Ashley Todd, the 20-year-old McCain volunteer who bravely attempted to incite a New American Race War with her fake story about getting mutilated by an angry black man and instead spawned a cheap Halloween costume trend, will not be sent to torture-prison for five and a half years. After a mere week in jail, she reached a plea agreement with the Authorities: no hard time, only mental health treatment. She will also have to check in with those Authorities every now and again to let them know of her whereabouts, like a common criminal, so there’s that. By next week she will have a country music recording contract and her own show on Fox, after “Huckabee.” [MSNBC]

    I am Ashley the Nut Job.

  • shortsshortsshorts

    Who is Ashley Todd? As an American my attention span is limited to this comment and my memory is limited to the last time I had sex.

  • Fly-over Correspondent

    And a book deal, which could sell more copies than “The Turner Diaries”

  • cal

    I see her big comeback as a talk show host on Fox:

    “Coming up next, it’s Ashley!”

  • Neon Trotsky

    How many cut-nuts could fill a nut-hut, if their gut and butt did jut?

  • Doglessliberal

    Damn, I was hoping they would do some creative sentencing like: you must give poor, Black women foot massages and pedicures 8 hours a day for a month.

    Golly, how could this girl be so fucked up at such a young age? I’m gonna say inbreeding since she’s from College Station. ICE BURN!

    Don’t her carving skills make her more suited to the Food Channel?

    I’m perplexed by this. She seems to have so much self esteem and awareness…

    [re=156176]Doglessliberal[/re]: or large, mean, black janitors.

    I was hoping for regular prison. That way she could be a cut-nut butt slut.

    I am going as Ashley Todd Palin for Halloween.

  • problemwithcaring

    [re=156176]Doglessliberal[/re]: Her probation shouldn’t allow for her to wield a nail file ever again.

  • Rush

    As a convict, she probably can’t vote. HAHAHAHA

  • NoWireHangers

    She totally needs to stop by Dr. Phil or Montel and share her story.

  • NoWireHangers

    Also, I love the “cut nut” thing, Wonkette. Well done.

  • dano

    …when reached for comment Ms. Todd claimed to have been contacted by the Palin 2012 campaign for a possible honorary position as “Race Baiter Emeritus”.

  • NotUrEvryDayWEzl

    [re=156163]StripesAndPlaids[/re]: I’ll gladly take that nut job if your offering.


    Will she dance on Ellen? Maybe she’ll do a Dancing With The Stars and waltz with Joe The Plumber.

    By the way, speaking of Joe The Plumber… HOW MUCH $$$ IS JOE THE PLUMBER BEING PAID BY THE PALIN CAMPAIGN? My guess is he gets $1000 every time they mention his name (and his offspring – Manny the Mechanic, Susie the Seamstress, Wilma the Waitress). Quite a business he launched. On O’Reilly just now he said he doesn’t like the media attention! He’s on the air more than Obama for shucks sakes!

  • Not_So_Much

    I would totes watch her show! Mostly just to try and divine what secret symbols she would carve into her cheek each week…

    [re=156196]problemwithcaring[/re]: How ’bout a nail gun? That’d be awesome!

  • american mutt

    Actually, now I’m scared she will be beat up by a big black man this time around.

  • AnnieGetYourFun

    God, in that photo of her, she looks even younger. I ALMOST feel bad for her. If I had feelings, I would definitely experience something called “sympathy”.

  • Advocatus_Diaboli

    Maybe she should be sentenced to learn the alphabet, and about the way things look “different” in the mirror.

  • ManchuCandidate

    I hope that when she gets her C&W recording contract that her first song is “Ash the Knife.”

  • bonghitsforjesus

    If there’s one thing you learn in the nuthouse it’s how to carve a really deep gash that you can be proud of. So she’ll have a skill when she gets out.

    [re=156204]MISTAHCOUGHDROP[/re]: Let me define it for you, Mr. Coughdrop:

    “bull·shit (blsht) Vulgar Slang
    1. Foolish, deceitful, or boastful language.
    2. Something worthless, deceptive, or insincere.
    3. Insolent talk or behavior.”

  • Doglessliberal

    [re=156189]hockeymom[/re]: ok, yes, much better.

  • wildeoats

    Not even Levi would hit it.

  • Paterlanger

    Since Joe the Plumber is being offered entertainment contracts too maybe they could do a project together. I’m thinking a reality show where Joe swears to help Ashley avenge her despoiled whiteness by tracking down the (very real) negro who mutilated her jowells. The first installment would begin with Ashley explaining that since all the cops interviewing her were black she had no choice but to change her story and claim that it was all a hoax otherwise the black cops would have killed her. Now, with the help of an unlicensed plumber/neophyte media whore, she can take justice into her own pudgy hands. Of course there would be some romantic tension between Ashley and Joe.

  • Rush


    Good morning, the worm, your honour,
    The crown will plainly show,
    The prisoner who now stands before you,
    Was caught red-handed showing feelings.
    Showing feelings of an almost human nature.
    This will not do

    Don’t worry about Ashely Todd. Miss “Girl Interrupted” will always be welcome on any white supremacist compound. They can pass her around like a bong in a dorm room.

  • Kinbote

    I hope the janitors are nicer to her from now on.

  • obamaslamma

    “cheap Halloween costume trend”? To all ‘slutty nurses’ and ‘naughty teachers’ — please pay no attention.

  • Serolf Divad

    It’s just a shame we can’t put away her anablers also, and yes, I’m speaking of Drudge and the Right-wing media that hyped this absurd story without taking the time to ask some very basic questions. I mean seriously, when you’re even less skeptical and objective a journalist than Michelle Malkin you’ve got some problems.

  • Anonymous Office Zombie

    Is it too early to add her to the list of contenders to be America’s Next Top Republican Leader yet?

  • Czn939

    “Her own show on Fox” ROFLMAO!
    Isn’t that too true, though?
    Oliver North, Geraldo Rivera, Mike Huckabee…
    They even had Mark Furman on as a legal consultant once.
    Fox’s vetting process is almost as irresponsible as McCain’s.

  • slappypaddy

    “When the snark

    A week in jail huh? I bet she has a whole new outlook on life and good and evil and all that stuff now.

  • Kinbote

    [re=156224]lenorecutie[/re]: Yes, Sara has gotten in touch with her inner NY Post. Bravo for life’s little ironies, indeed. Well played, madam.

  • problemwithcaring

    [re=156211]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: She sorta looks young, but consider: if she was a black girl from her part of rural Texas, she probably would have been sentenced to life or/and dragged behind several pickup trucks by now.

    World-class medical treatment and an expunged record without any admission of guilt is what you get when you win on a reality TV show, not for trying to incite your neighbors into mob violence. Perhaps we will get to drag her behind a truck at some later time.

  • Gopherit

    We should send her some truck nutz as a thank you.

    Goddamn it. My halloween costume is already obsolete. Damn justice system.

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    I hope this sets a precedent for all other Republicans.

  • springfield_meltdown

    [re=156241]Czn939[/re]: She can’t get her own show on Fox. She isn’t tall or blonde or pretty. If they make an exception to the blonde rule it would probably be for Palin. At best she could be a liberal pundit on Fox since we all know how they like to ug them up.

  • Kwame&#39

    [re=156173]Neon Trotsky[/re]: Win.

  • Constitutional Riots

    [re=156244]larz[/re]: I have high hopes for Ashley. She’ll destress and slim down doing yoga and pilates, bulk up in lock down and then give Caribou Barbie a smackdown challenge for who can field dress a moose the fastest. Winner takes all. So, I’ll have to go with Todd*Palin 2012.

  • fuckinredneck

    It’s a good thing for Ash RETodd’s reputation that this ugly incident will also be expunged from Google and the internet forever.

    Oh wait, no it won’t!


  • Liverspots

    At the very least, the police should have actually carved a backwards B into her cheek with a five-inch knife. Or dropped her off in the real wrong side of Pittsburgh.

    Great, a Tennessee shirt. Like one of the guys who conspired to attack Obama was from TN, the “Obama Waffles” assholes are in TN, the douche who named his kid “Sarah McCain Palin” is in TN, and the home of the KKK is in Pulaski, TN.
