You all heard the story of the poor pitiful McCain campaign volunteer who was mugged by an angry Obama supporter, who cut a letter 'B' on her face? Yeah, she made it up.
You understand this comes from, of course... here's all these news stories out there of crazed Palin supporters race-baiting reporters and so on. One might expect the campaign to try to rein in their more neanderthal supporters, but no... they need them. So we need a little Obama-on-McCain violence to 'balance' out the storyline. Then the MSM can do their usual 'everybody does it' false equivalencing.
Only problem is, you can't expect a twenty-year-old apparent-moron to do a very good job at setting up the scene.
I could have told them that.
