UPDATE: WE’VE BEEN HOAXED!
KDKA is reporting that Ms. Todd made the whole thing up. One does wonder what would drive her to do it – since hoaxes rarely work (with the notable exception of global warming…)
The other examples I cite below remain intact, however…
Study this face.
Look at it closely.
This could be you.
This is the face of Ashley Todd, a McCain/Palin volunteer (not even a paid staffer) who was viciously attacked and mugged in Pittsburgh on Wednesday night.
Pittsburgh police say the 6-foot-4-inch thug punched, kicked and then literally lashed out at the woman after glancing at her McCain for president bumper sticker.
A photo of Todd shows a crimson scar of the letter “B” etched backwards on her right cheek. She also has a black eye and her face is puffy.
Let me see if I can get this straight.

…and we’re supposed to ignore this candidate’s ties to an unrepentant domestic terrorist?
