If it were true, it should not have affected anyone's vote and if it is not true it shouldn't either. In either case, it is a sick person acting on their own and not part of the McCain or Obama campaigns. This whole election has gotten so downright stupid on both sides and is being furthered by people like some of those on this site.

Most posters here just report links from the mainstream media and then discuss them. Sorta like after dinner conversation at the university. Would anyone like a mint?

YouTube - McCain Supporter Robbed and Maimed!

This is a FoxNews clip from when the story wasn't a hoax yet-- they go into to the details of the story and then say it all comes on the heels of reports that there will be rioting if Obama loses! Do they have any shame??

(sorry if this is hijacking your thread Tuborg)
Oh please, even O'Reilly said last night that he was skeptical of the whole story. I'm a McCain supporter but I will admit that woman is the lunatic fringe. There are crazies on both sides.

No thanks.

I'd take a shot of Maker's Mark if it was offered, though.

I think she was a volunteer, not a paid worker.

She lied. It was on CNN just a few minutes ago.

The McCain campaign did not direct her to do this attention seeking dramatic action. She worked a phone bank. This is how this crap gets distorted and proves my point.

(a) I agree that what did or did not happen has nothing to do with either candidate.

(b) What bothered me so much is the way Fox and others reported the story. Some of the original articles about her attack are very racist and mention the possibility of riots.

(c) I like to think out loud which is why I often post on boards. Sharing ideas is healthy as long as there are no personal attacks.

So, although any logical, reasonable person would tend to agree with you that it shouldn't have any effect on the election, unfortunately it does.

If that were only true, that would be nice. You are one of the world's worse at trying to stir up propaganda to suit your agenda.
