I am just SO surprised, I don't think
Today's big foofaraw is over, and I don't mean the stock market:
(CNN) -- A Republican campaign worker who told police she was assaulted by a man angered by a John McCain sticker on her car admitted she made up the report, the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, assistant police chief said Friday.
Ashley Todd, 20, of College Station, Texas, has been charged with filing a false police report, a misdemeanor, and may face more charges, said Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Diane Richard at a news conference.
Color me amazingly shocked at this revelation.
And on top of it, we had the McCain campaign in Pennsylvania talking it up to the press:
The McCain spokesperson's claims -- which came in the midst of extraordinary and heated conversations late yesterday between the McCain campaign, local TV stations, and the Obama camp, as the early version of the story rocketed around the political world -- is significant because it reveals a McCain official pushing a version of the story that was far more explosive than the available or confirmed facts permitted at the time.
Aaaaaaaand on top of that, FAUX brought the stupid with not only speculation that the "attack" was a mere taste of what we can expect on Election Day, but this informative headline:
Clicketh and thou wilst embiggen
"Why" indeed. Like the man said - "if you gotta ask, you ain't never gonna know".
