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."

It was false and in the words of the Fox VP race the McCain campaign is forever linked to race-baiting.

This whole thing seems like a tempest in a teapot to me.

A desperate attempt by a poorly managed campaign gasping for breath and falling further behind each day as the finish line approaches. This will be buried and forgotten in the post-election euphoria. It serves only as another reminder of the twisted emotional state of the far-right hangers-on.

Are you angry, at all?

Are they still hanging on or are some slipping off the edge?

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.

I heard Fox's report and nothing was metioned about riots...period. They were somewhat skeptical when reporting it and even O'reilly said he found the story iffy.

Oh, there are definitely some slippers-over-the-edge, to be certain.

I'll see if I can find a video. There is Fox News and also Fox Local News.

Edit: Well, I can't find anything on YouTube, but I'm sure I saw something on the news and it was Fox or maybe it was on our local Fox4 station. (Lee & Collier Counties are very Republican.)

Did she carve that "B" backwards in the mirror, or are these photos reversed?

Not at all, just tired of the two faced bs that goes on here. When this story was possibly true, Obama supporters were saying, so what does that have to do with Obama and now that is is not, it's a big deal for McCain. You can't have it both ways.

I think it is backward. When I saw it I thought to myself, what a dummy.
