You would think poor Ashley Todd would know better. Susan Smith tried it,it didn't work. Charles Stuart tried it; it didn't work. Hell even Lindsey Lohan tried it, but it didn't work. Still, I can't say that I totally blame home girl. It used to be always safe to blame the black man in A-merry-ca. But now in the age of 24 hour surveillance cameras, and polygraph tests, it just might not be so easy anymore. Still, Ashley gave it the old college try.
Ashley Todd said that a big 6 four 4 black man put a five inch knife to her neck, took her money, and when he saw a McCain Palin bumper sticker on her car; he carved a "B" on her cheeks, just for good measure. Well, your first mistake, Ashley, was thinking a black man would rob your ass with a knife. Ain't happening. The weapon of choice to rob poor innocent white women at the ATM machine, is a hand gun. Or, as we call them in the hood; an "Air Mike Tyson". And another thing, no self respecting black robber would see you at the ATM, and just take the $60 you just took out. No Ashley, he would tell your ass to take your card and clean out whatever you had in that bitch. And you being a little white girl, a long way from your Texas home, I am sure there would be a nice piece of change in that old Texas Savings & Loan account....
Folks, I am trying to write this story, but it's so hard. It's hard to type when you are rolling with laughter. This morning the conservative press was all over this story. Drudge led with it, the conservative websites were salivating all over themselves, and FAKE NEWS was about to go wall to wall with Ashley coverage. ("This presidential election campaign will, undoubtedly, go down in history of one of the worst. John McCain supporter, Ashley Todd, 20, was robbed by a knife-wielding man, who etched a “B” into her face, after he saw a McCain bumper sticker on the woman’s car. According to the police, Ms. Todd was using an ATM at Liberty Avenue and Pearl Street in Bloomfield just before 9 p.m. Wednesday when a man approached her, put a knife to her throat and demanded $60. What a scumbag." That, from the conservative blog, "Black Political Thought". Yes, you are right; "what a scum"? But the scum is Ashley Todd and her cohorts in the McCain campaign, who pushed this story to the national press. And this presidential campaign will go down in history as "one of the worst". Why? Because of the desperate race baiting, and politics of fear being practiced by republicans, not because of anything the Obama camp is doing) But a funny thing happened on the way to the town square with the pitch forks, and the rope. Seems Ashley was lying. Back in the day that wouldn't have mattered, they would have found a black man, any black man, and his ass would have become one of those "strange fruit" that Billie Holiday used to sing about.
Now the only strange person in this entire episode is Mr. Morton. Because he has yet to apologize to the nation for the behavior of his campaign worker, and his campaign. A campaign that pushed a story knowing that even if it were true, it would have played on the worst racial fears of the A-merry-can people, and would have contributed to division and even more anger among the masses. Shame on you John McCain. Shame on you republicans.
Now everyone is saying that poor Ashley needs help, that she might have a mental problem, that she might have been under a lot of pressure, and blah blah blah. Listen, Ashley Todd is no different than quite a few people in this country. She is an ignorant racist piece of shit. The fact that she acted out her sick demented delusions, only means that she actually thought that she could get away with it.
Ashley Todd worked for the College Republican National Committee, and her job was to recruit other young people to her cause. Gee, I wonder how successful she has been so far?
