Ashley Todd is the little Republican field organizer who told police that she was attacked and brutalized because she has a McCain sticker on her bumper.
Such a terrible thing! McCain and Palin both phoned her to commiserate. Biden and Obama expressed the hope the attacker would swiftly be brought to justice.
The only problem is, it turns out that Ashley is a liar.
Ashley cooked up a nasty little scheme to mislead the voters, and then she blamed a Black man.
Does this sound familiar? Why, yes it does!
This is the long-standing strategy of the national GOP! First it comes up with a self-aggrandizing, destructive plan that swindles the public, then executes it, hurts itself and many others in the process, and then blames it all on people of color.
Here. Plug it in yourself. Whether the script is Iraq, or Katrina, or the home foreclosure crisis, it works! Yecht. It's uncanny when you think about it.
So here's my thought for the day. Give the poor elephant a break. Make Ashley's photo the official Republican Party logo. Now that would be Truth in Advertising.
