Even if we don't have a clue to where Obama is taking the country we endorse him. What blatant ignorance!

Bryan College has become nuts all the way around. I would wonder if the girl is really a McCain worker after all of this.
I had the same thought. Why would she concoct this stupid story and then take it back quite so quickly. Very fishy indeed, but still just a lone goofball and there are many out there.

Two things I wonder:

1. Will she have a scar to remind her the rest of her life that a backwards B stands for what a backwards Bad idea this was?

2. Is Fox News still saying the McCain campaign is over??? When even Fox admits it, that's when you really know it's over...

Earlier today, John Moody, executive vice president at Fox News, commented on his blog there that "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."

It was false and in the words of the Fox VP race the McCain campaign is forever linked to race-baiting.
what a freaky skank she is! go figure that she's an "aggie".

It is a mute issue either way. Should not have impactred anyone's vote. This person is an idiot. there I said it, an idiot! Now if this story were fliped, Obama supporters would come back with their emotionally charged diatribe defending this person's actions.

She's been drinking too much Aggie water indeed. Even if she's at Blinn, she's probably an Aggie wannabe.

My sister graduated from A&M. When we were in town for graduation, we were turning on to the road where the Bush Library is. There's a wide median that has a "Keep Right" sign so people don't turn the wrong way. My sister said that sign pretty much summed up what she experienced during her time there...everyone keeps right and she didn't mean to avoid wrecks.

Now she has a B scar on her face. What an idiot!!

I agree there are many nuts out there. However, I also believe John McCain and Sarah Palin are partly responsible for making them crawl out from under their rocks.

I don't think Congressman Lewis should have apologized after he said the McCain & Palin rallies reminded him of the hostility created by George Wallace and his followers. Nobody can convince me that they didn't realize saying someone is dangerous and a terrorist might upset & frighten some people.

I'm White, platinum blonde with green eyes, so people somehow figure they can say anything to me, including very sick, racial slurs. I know how easy it is to incite an angry crowd and to spread hatred.

Yep, a fine GOP tradition of always-reliable race-baiting.
