Pathetic

Did y’all see that story that caused Matt Drudge’s latest scandalgasm? The one where the white campaign worker in Pittsburgh claimed she was attacked by a black man who became enraged when he saw a McCain sticker on her car, and pounced on her, beat the crap out of her, then carved a B into her cheek? Yeah. That story, didja see it?

Well, guess what. She made it up!

HT: Sully, who also calls our attention to what John Moody, the executive VP of Fox News, said regarding the alleged incident:

If Ms. Todd’s allegations are proven accurate, some voters may revisit their support for Senator Obama, not because they are racists (with due respect to Rep. John Murtha), but because they suddenly feel they do not know enough about the Democratic nominee.

As Andrew points out, this is a hugely racist statement in itself, and YES, it would absolutely be racist if people reconsidered their support for Obama specifically over this incident. Oy.

Update: Oh, lol:

fail
