Ashley Todd: Truth in Advertising!

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.

I'm probably being dense, but what is the significance of the "B" and why is it backwards?

It will be interesting to see who, if anyone, put Ashley up to this.

The McCain campaign quickly pushed it to local media, claiming that the "B" stood for Barack.
See: (which is the same as the following:

Wishful thinking on the McCain part. Probably a sad story on the part of a McCain worker who may have been becoming more and more distraught. The back story should be interesting.

I hope the right wing dingbats inform their mis-informed listeners on the radio that they were lied to again. Fat chance of that ever happening. I happened to catch a bit of one of them talking about it today while driving back from Wickenburg. I nearly had to pull over and throw up. I cannot believe that there are people in this country that believe all of this bulls**t. Heaven help them because it seems that they cannot help themselves.
