The Associated Press informs us this day that Ashley Todd, a McCain volunteer from Texas reported to police in Pittsburgh that she was attacked, robbed and beaten by a black man who proceeded to whup her like Knee-grows do and carve a B in her face telling her that she was gonna be Barack's bitch or something like that.
There was only one problem with this story, and that is that it was a falsehood, a fabrication, a damned lie and a piece of atrocity propaganda that, had it proved to have legs, might well have ignited a firestorm in swing state Pennsylvania. It's the kind of putup job that Josef Goebbels might have admired.
She'd made the whole thing up, and has been charged with misdemeanor filing of a false police report.
You gotta love the GOP. They've really come off the rails.
