McCain supporter charged in hoax incident - The bottom line is she lied

(CNN) -- Bail was set at $50,000 Friday night for a GOP campaign worker who made up a story about being attacked by a man angered by a John McCain bumper sticker on her car.

CNN refused to run the story about 20 year old Ashley Todd, a volunteer for or a John McCain phone bank in Pittsburgh who told investigators a man approached her Wednesday night at an ATM in Pittsburgh's East End, put a blade to her neck and demanded money.

Todd originally told police a man "punched her in the back of the head, knocking her to the ground, and he continued to punch and kick her while threatening to teach her a lesson for being a McCain supporter."

November 4th can't come soon enough so that the country isn't having to waste attention on nutcases like Ashley Todd. Let's get the election done with so that Obama and his administration can get on with the enormous task of restoring America to its former self.

FactCheck.org: (September 17, 2008)

Is McCain unable to use a computer because of war injuries?

He can type. But using a keyboard for long periods is uncomfortable for him. He says he's been an "illiterate" on a computer. But he says now he's learning to use the Internet.

The right wing media just POUNCED on this.  What a dumb thing to do....Beyond the obvious race baiting - it also perpetuates the questions regarding the JUDGEMENT of McCain and his campaign.  Not unlike the selection of Sarah Palin, the embrace of "Joe the Plumber," and the comment that our "economy is sound."  One gaffe after another after another and another.......

   Sorry Stewart, after reading factcheck.org and the article by ABC News' Jake Tupper:

He can type, he occasionally does type, but in general, the injuries he sustained as a POW - ones that make it impossible for him to raise his arms high enough to comb his hair - mean that small tasks make his shoulders ache, so he tries to avoid any repetitive exercise. 

 I choose to stand by what I said.  ""I have to rely on my wife for all of the assistance I can get"".  Given where I volunteer, the choice to ask for assistance is up to the participant: not me or the staff.""

 I think your thesis requires that Mccain endure the pain to learn to use the computer: it appears Mccain chooses not to.

This story is really frightening.  I can't believe that people care so much that they would permanently disfigure themselves in order to advance their candidate.  The psychologist in me can't wait for this to be all over.
