Certainly not Obama's fault but I think we all know how this will play out.

Big black man mugged white woman, then beat her and mutilated her because she is a McCain supporter. Don't think this won't hurt Obama.

http://kdka.com/politics/McCain.Campaign.W...r.2.847449.html

Pittsburgh police are investigating after a volunteer for the Republican campaign says she was attacked by a mugger who became enraged after seeing a John McCain bumper sticker on her car last night.

According to police, the 20-year-old woman said she was robbed at an ATM at the corner of Liberty Avenue and Pearl Street in the Bloomfield area around 9pm Wednesday after leaving a Republican phone bank.

The woman told police that the suspect, described only as a dark-skinned African-American man about 6'4", stole $60 from her and became enraged after seeing a bumper sticker supporting Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain on her car.

The woman said the suspect punched and kicked her before knocking her the ground.

another Charles Stuart type case, no doubt

He just wanted her to spread the wealth.

Terrible story if true and so far there's no reason to not believe it, but the name Tawana Brawley keeps coming to mind. You youngsters can Google that one.

"refused medical treatment after the assault, which happened outside the view of the bank's surveillance cameras."

Sounds like I was saying about the dead Obama bear could be true on this one as well. Do you really believe a guy that is mugging you is going to hang around to carve a B or stop to note her support of mccain? Why not just punch her or stab and run?

Chuck Stewart yep.

Lots of that going around.

This was my first thought. Republicans are getting desperate.

She volunteers for his campaign. Not too suspicious.

I feel awful for her if that's true, but her twitters make it a little suspect, no?

he became 'enraged after seeing her mccain sticker?'

FAIL.

More plausible version: She's a partisan operative who got mugged and decided to exploit it to try and make hay for McCain. Where's the 'mutilated' bit, too? One would think that if one was "mutilated" that they wouldn't refuse hospital care.

Just saw a picture of her on the web. It looks like she carved that "B" while looking in a mirror. Girl's got some 'splainin' to do as we say here on the board and the mugger sure had some good penmanship.

I would like to see McCain fans jump all over it for a few days before proven a fabrication.

ooof. I take back my original assessment.

Not so sure she was robbed at all now.

I know that area like the back of my hand. It's my boyhood home. Liberty Avenue is very well-lit, and plenty of traffic. I'd be hard-pressed to imagine how she could have been mugged. By a black guy, no less.

Sorry, I'd only care about this if she were cute and blonde.

Not if he was behind her head while she was lying prone. But.... 99.99999% chance he was on top of her.

Because it's more plausible that she just laid still with her arms and legs unrestrained while a crazy guy carves up her face?

Anyway, the police don't buy it either and they are making her submit to a polygraph. My bet is that she breaks down during the set up and admits it or that she lawyers up which also points to a hoax.

Correct. That was my saying it is bullshit because that is the only plausible explanation for the lettering other than she Morton Downey Jr.'ed herself. Plausible only in execution of the letter being carved that way by another person and not by yourself in front of a mirror. Thus... not plausible in a real world rage scenerio as she would have had to have been lying still.

I just saw this in another article:

Ms. Todd told police during at least five hours of questioning last night that her attacker said to her, "You are going to be a Barack supporter." She told police the man then sat on her chest, pinning both her hands down with his knees and used what she believed was a dull knife with a roughly 5-inch blade to carve the B.

you know who is going to look REALLY foolish? McCain and Palin who BOTH personally called this liar to support her.

It's not like the campaign just 'issued a statement'. McCain and Palin look REALLY foolish for having fallen for this hoax.
