Moment of Truth
It had to happen.
Less than two weeks before we vote for a new president, a white woman says a black man attacked her, then scarred her face, and says there was a political motive for it.
Ashley Todd, a 20-year-old white volunteer for John McCain’s presidential campaign, says she was mugged at an ATM machine in Pittsburgh (my hometown) by a big black man. She further says he threw her down, then disfigured her by carving the letter “B” into her face with a sharp implement when he saw that she supported McCain, not Barack Obama.
Part of the appeal of, and the unspoken tension behind, Senator Obama’s campaign is his transformational status as the first African-American to win a major party’s presidential nomination.
That does not mean that he has erased the mutual distrust between black and white Americans, and this incident could become a watershed event in the 11 days before the election.
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.
If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain’s quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting.
For Pittsburgh, a city that has done so much to shape American history over the centuries, another moment of truth is at hand. (Author Note: reprinted from Fox News Blog Board w/o permission)
AMERICA WE DO NOT NEED THIS KIND OF CRAP. THE STORY WAS A LIE!!
McCain Campaign Volunteer Admits Alleged Attack Was a Hoax
A woman who lied about being attacked because of the McCain bumper sticker on her car will face charges of filing a false report.
America We are EMPOWERED. We can stop this hate from spreading by doing exactly what FOX News did to Pepsi, Ludacris and Jay Zee. http://dir.salon.com/story/ent/feature/2003/02/08/ludacris/
Boycott Fox News!
Sean Hannity has been spewing this type of discord, discontent, distrust and misinformation since the primaries. Sean Hannity is an uneducated, wimp in comparison to Karl Rove. Yet week after week, and night after night Hannity implies that there is something wrong with the Democratic nominee for President because he is black, or he has had a brief association with Professor William Ayers, whom most people don’t know or care about, or attacking Senator Obama’s former minister. STOP WATCHING, STOP LISTENING TO THE SPREAD OF FEAR!!!
This fear mongering has lead to a young woman doing something as foolish as to maim her own face and for what to falsely claim that a Black Man had attacked her because she was a McCain Supporter. Give me a f****ing break. REAL AMERICA will not buy the BS anymore Sean. REAL AMERICA, We are DONE with you and your ilk. REAL AMERICA will need every REAL AMERICAN WORKING TOGETHER to positively progress through the next decade.
B O Y C O T T F O X N E W S !! NOW!!!
V O T E ! V O T E ! V O T E ! V O T E ! V O T E !
But why should a $150,000.00 price tag surprise anyone, after all, Ms. McCain was wearing a $350,00.00 haute couture outfit (bet Cindy paid for her own outfit) during the final night of the RNC Convention and let us not forget the $1800.00 Ferragamo Nour 2 Loafers that John McCain wears every day (I bet Cindy paid for those too). As we know and respect, Cindy and John McCain can afford expensive designer stuff, after all Cindy reported she earned $4.2 million in income in 2007 http://www.johnmccain.com/mccainfinancial/default.htm. According to Todd and Sarah Palin’s 2007 income tax return http://www.johnmccain.com/downloads/2007TaxForms_Palin.pdf the two of the together grossed $166,000 including $3300 in per diem paid by the state of Alaska. No way she can afford a $150,000.00 shopping spree. So who paid? No wonder Senator McCain looked so stressed sitting next to Governor Palin during their recent interview. But the comments McCain made some years ago that really bring this wholly Real-American form of socialism, as my favorite radio talk show host Randi Rhodes http://www.novamradio.com is fond of saying, “privatize profits and socialize losses; In good times, the profits remain private, making the rich even richer. In dark hours, after years of bad loans and choices, the losses become everyone's problem.” http://www.therandirhodesshow.com/index.php?/archives/83-Monday,-Septemeber-15,-2008.html
Thank you Keith Olbermann
How many of you can go on any shopping spree? How many of you can plan you Christmas shopping now? Have you figured out how to tell your children they will not be receiving that Wii console they have been waiting for three years to have under the tree?
Tell John McCain and Sarah Palin that you are paying attention to what they do as well as what they are saying by casting your VOTE!!!
Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachman wants mainstream media to investigate her accusations of Senator Barack Obama’s Anti Americanism along with other unnamed members of Congress.
Retired Five Star General Colin Powell on “Meet the Press” with Tom Brokaw announces his support and endorsement for Senator Barack Obama for President, for all the multiple legitimate reasons he identified. Tom Brokaw wanted to know if General Powell was making this endorsement simply because Senator Obama was black. General Powell’s answer reflected honesty, deep thought, dignity, resounding succinctly and without hesitation.
Rush Limbaugh and Pat Buchanan each attempted to denigrate General Powell and his decision to endorse Senator Obama.
Please, Don't Forget to VOTE!

I listened as the reporters and media discussed how the McCain Palin campaign was not allowing the press present during Governor Palin’s meetings with world leaders during the UN General Assembly. The campaign had originally decided to have a pool reporter present until at the last minute, the Palin forces decided they only wanted a still photographer present. The media had been shut out by the McCain/Palin campaign. The media’s response…
The media carried the story of the “shut out,” along with the still photographs that the McCain/Palin campaign wanted the public to see in the first place. So what was the point? Having Sarah Palin’s name in the news (if this can be considered news), and to have photos of Sarah Palin conversing with multiple world leaders; shaking hands with various world leaders. And the fell right into step and did exactly what they were supposed to do, following the direction of the McCain/Palin campaign while appearing to be kicking and screaming as the media continues to do what it is told.
NOW WE KNOW WHY!!! SARAH PALIN CAN’T BE TRUSTED! She lied about her own abuse of power. That’s why she didn’t want to talk to reporters. Sarah Palin has had the audacity to question Senator Barack Obama’s credibility, judgment and character; “Guilt By Accusation”…watch out for those who throw stones. Who do you want to trust now for the White House for the next four years?????
Tonight, it is very strange that only MS-NBC, AP and Reuters are the only news covering this tonight.

Sarah Palin discussed Senator Barack Obama’s association with William Ayers as – …pals with a known terrorist who attacks
As law breakers go, Governor Palin, you have obstructed justice in an investigation into your own behavior as a Governor concerning abuse of power. You encouraged your subordinates to defy a court ordered subpoenas and your own husband has refused to acknowledge a subpoena issued to him to appear to testify under oath. Sarah Palin, Who Exactly is the LAW BREAKER HERE?
Let us not fall for the bull puckey
Sarah Palin and John McCain this country needs a true and honest discussion about our economy and where you intend to take us should you become Vice President and President. Not the bull that you intend to divert our attention toward. If you truly want the positions, your auditions are not making the grade.
And now… Keith Olbermann’s “Special Comment”...
Wednesday, October 1, 2008
Over the past several weeks since the end of the Republican Convention, there has been a lot of news about Governor Sarah Palin…Senator John McCain's choice for Vice President. I have watched and listened to learn what I could about the Governor. I listened to her acceptance speech; I did my own homework on the Governor including her time as Mayor of Wasilla,
Governor Sarah Palin instantly reminds you of the type of American woman you know (from the neighborhood, the play ground, the church or meet in the grocery store, on occasion), who knows what is best for everyone and has no problem letting everyone know exactly what is best for everyone…everyone, except herself. Governor Palin is the kind of woman that you really don’t like very much right from the beginning. Including that very phony accent, which didn't exist during her time as a sportscaster or as a beauty contestant. Let us not forget that annoying WHINNNE in her voice.
Remember the bridge to nowhere, the jet on eBay and the personal cook that was fired. Didn’t happen! That’s right those were lies once stated by Governor Palin, were then repeated over and over by the media. There was also the bomb shell that the Governors sixteen year old daughter was pregnant but would soon be marrying the father of the baby; however, this fact should not be a dynamic in deciding who to vote for in November.
As stated in the past, it would be very nice to have the right, competent female as President or Vice President, but women have standards, Hillary Clinton did not make the cut and neither does Sarah Palin. Do some of your own homework and you will find, as mayor, Sarah Palin began office with a balanced budget and no deficit for a town of less than ten thousand people. Upon leaving office, the town was some 23 million dollars or more in debt. This after receiving some 50 million dollars in government ear marks.
Similarly, Hillary Clinton mismanaged her campaign and financing; everyone thought she was the logical choice for Democratic nominee. Loosing to Senator Obama, Senator Clinton found herself over 11 million dollars in debt; proving that neither of these females has the ability to successfully manage a budget.
However unlike Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin and her husband (The First Dude) are already ducking for cover, employing the current administrations favorite line “executive privilege”, when confronted with their wrong doing; and yes, just flat refusing to honor subpoenas issued by the Alaska State Legislation; Bill Clinton was President when Hillary Clinton was subpoenaed to appear before Congress and the Special Prosecutor. (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/19/us/politics/19trooper.html?ref=politics)
Governor Palin refuses to comply with subpoenas for freedom of information or co-operate with investigations. According to the Republican Campaign Committee, “The coverage last week was ``not what I would call objective journalism,''
Deference and respect…two words that are never applied when Republicans are referring to the American people; we have been reduced to a nation of whiners (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HU36YAucSk) and more recently Americans have become the fundamentals of the economy.
“At the same time, in Sarah Palin news, Sarah Palin tells Sean Hannity that when John McCain says the "Fundamentals of the economy are strong," he's talking about American workers and their strength.
Poor Sarah Palin. McCain himself, after repeating his "fundamentals" comment, knew he was in trouble, so he tried to lie his way out of it and say that, by "fundamentals," he meant the strength of the American worker.” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/matt-littman/are-you-a-fundamental_b_127533.html
Governor Palin appears very proud of her time as Mayor of Wasilla even though Wasilla is known to be the meth capital of
Governor Palin, have you listened to yourself speak? My questions to you are; does the Gnome of the North Pole bring that accent to you every two years? After attending, what, five or was it six different colleges you finally graduated with a degree in journalism; did they teach you English? Are you attempting to manipulate the American people into believing you are something you are not? Are you attempting to portray women as inept, ill informed, and unintelligent? If so, you are doing a great job, just watch this clip from CBS News with Katie Couric as she spends time with the Governor.
That should hold us until after the debate on Thursday, but there is more
