Am I the last person to know????


So, the whole thing was a hoax?

Police say a campaign volunteer confessed to making up a story that a mugger attacked her and cut the letter B in her face after seeing her McCain bumper sticker.

What kind of fucking world is this? ...making up a story about a 6 foot 4 black dude pinning you down and carving a 'B' into your face for being a McCain supporter?

Is this the most disgusting form of rascism we've seen this campaign or what?




Dear Ashley Todd,

You fucking asshole. It's understandable that you are upset about the fact that your candidate sucks. You are frustrated that your political party put forward such a pathetic character to represent your beliefs, of which you clearly care deeply about... apparently, to the point of insanity.

But did you have to fulfill every non-Texan's stereotype about the horrific rascism, ignorance, and apparent lunacy of the average Texan (Austin residents excluded)?

Furthermore, are you even aware of the hatefullness that your actions imply? That you'd fictionalize such a horrific act despite having to endure self-mutilation to accomplish your ruse?

This is futile... I don't have the ability to craft a letter that could possibly express my frustration.

I hope that you have plenty of time in jail with plenty of nice incarcirated African-American women that can explain the folly of your actions to you.

Best of luck douchebag.

That's nuts Puddy. I did not know that it was hoax. I believe she earned Turd of the Week.

You're right. Normally that's Sal's shtick... but I think I'll take the liberty of updating the TOTW this time...

I was actually thinking turd of the month. Notice how the last few turds have all been racist scum? What a campaign McCain is running...

On the bright side, someone did get to punch her in the face. And here I defended this dumb twat.

don't sweat it dick - apparently michelle malkin was among the first to call bullshit leaving believers like you and me in good company...

HelenWheels said...

Ahem. I called bullshit immediately. IT was so silly and stupid on so many levels. And how fucking racist and irresponsible. (You can see my revelations & how we figured it out on the Tweety/Pfotenhauer thread at my blog, not that you want to bother, but it's kinda fun).

I think the bruises are make-up on top of it. And WTF ... when she knew they were figuring out she lied, she added a sexual assault accusation?

What a psychotic asshole. And so is McCain's campaign for using it to what they THOUGHT was their advantage BEFORE it was investigated. They're paying for it now.

puddy said...

helen - aw crap... now i feel like a shitheel. i was totally following that thread too... i even have a comment in it! just forgot about it in my ashley todd-induced rage.

well, i'm glad to realize that michelle malkin wasn't the only one to call that asshole out. nice work helen - as always, we're reading - keep up the good work!

I hope this sick little bitch gets the help she needs.


Oh, and LOVED the Opie and Andy stuff. Awesome job Ron and Andy.
Hey, why wasn't Opie named "Ron" in the TV show? Why did only Andy get to use his real name? Huh? Huh? Why?

Okay, look, the gal is mentally ill. That doesn't make her an asshole, it makes her mentally ill. She needs help.

That the campaign and right wing media pushed it as real is the issue - I think they took advantage of her, and one more time played the fear card.

puddy said...

diva - good points. sheesh, what a stressful campaign season, eh? 11 days til sanity...

HelenWheels said...

TEN DAYS!!! NOT ELEVEN!!!

puddy said...

true... 10 days til the election. 11 days til the results are in and this madness is over.

HelenWheels said...

I'll probably have a nervous breakdown before then.

HelenWheels said...

DivaJood, you're right, she's probably more mentally ill than asshole. BUT if she's lying about being mentally ill, THEN she's an asshole :)

puddy said...

ok - clearly my post is "a bit" reactionary. i guess i'm just struggling with the intersection between "mentally ill" and bigot. this girl is a "cutter" and self-mutilation is clearly a sign of mental instability. i hope she gets the help she needs - but on the other hand, we've seen people do crazy things in the name of bigotry before. to dismiss hate and treat it with pity instead of disdain may make us feel good about ourselves but at some point we have to hold our noses and take the trash out.
