blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Drudge Fear Mongering Again

Drudge Fear Mongering Again

He quickly toned down the headline and linked to the story. And that story indicates: - She was robbed at a bank - She had a McCain bumper sticker on her car but no where does it say she was a volunteer - She refused medical attention. (Edit: This new story calls her a McCain "staffer" but she's also a 20 year old Texan.) "Developing" indeed. I want to see a picture of the "mutilated" girl. Edit: Thanks to wordkyle, I found her picture which mysteriously is on some blog and not on some news web site. The comments there are interesting. Something isn't right. Edit #2: Thanks to bagofnothing.com, here's her Twitter feed. Edit #3: And a right wing columnist smells a rat. Edit #4: After 12 hours of thinking about it, I'm betting this girl is lying.

Drudge is a douchebag.

Drudge won't have to "monger" any "fear" on 5 Nov 2008 when the website runs the following headline:

"Obama wins election"

That'll scare the $hit out of any American.

Well maybe not any American. Maybe some Americans but probably not the ones who probably vote for him Mr. Jarhead.

Drudge has always been to the right but has always had a good mix of stories. For the last couple of weeks all the stories are slanted way right. He must look all night to find a poll where Obama is only ahead by a couple of points.

Barry, here's the picture you requested. Here is where the McCain spokesman verified that she's a volunteer for the campaign.

If the victim's story is accurate, the man assaulted her because she was a McCain supporter. Makes ACORN's tactics look tame in comparison. There's your October surprise -- threats of physical violence if you don't vote for Obama.

Not a lot of sympathy for the victim of an attack there, BG. ("Mutilate" in quotes?) Is that because you're a defense lawyer or because you're a Liberal?

IF Obama IS elected, the best thing we can hope for is a vote recount...in Florida....in 2012

The worse part about the reports of the race being run so close is that when McCain wins all the morons will scream "cheaters"......voting fraud.

That will be like old times. Speaking of....I saw where Gore is introducing himself as "Former presdent Al Gore".

He's a sore loser.

wordkyle said...

Barry, all the questions raised about the evidence on that blog (not the opinions) are worth asking. There's always the chance of someone doing something stupid (which is why I phrased my previous comment the way I did.) If she did the damage herself, she's an idiot, and honest debate is the victim. If the damage came as a result of a genuine attack, she's a victim, along with the rest of us. Not much room for a middle POV.

Jarhead said...

Stupid Obama supporters. They can't even "mutilate" a girl correctly.

Um, excuse me, Mr. Mutilator? You, um, carved the "B" backwards.

And you want these individuals running the country?

Learn how to mutilate first, then work on the business of America.

I lke to see a pic as well.

I might offer her a position on my staff.

If Obama wins or loses, our towns will burn by riots in the streets. Sore losers like the monkey group mentality thugs when the Rodney King verdict came down. Happy celebration winners like they just won the Super Bowl. We can't win either way. I hope you liberal weenies are proud of your party.

Hey BG, still waiting on your answer as to what you would do if you worked in outside sales on commision and you had to share your commissions with other salesmen? I had a feeling I wouldn't get a response on that one. Kind of makes you think twice about your candidate wanting to redistibute the wealth doesn't it?

Looks like the Repubs will do anything to try and sway the votes!!!

7:00 and Prawn, You must live in bizzaro world. Drudge only links to other newstories. He DOES NOT write them. And he is definetly not slanted when he chooses which stories to link. You're just pissed because someone exposes newstories that expose your weenie party while the mainstream won't.

A vote for McCain is just as wasted as a vote for any candidate if you look at the chance to win. McCain has alienated his own party and supporters, and has run a terrible campaign. Now is the chance to voice your opinion and vote for principle, not party! Chuck Baldwin '08!

Anonymous said...

Wasn't it Hitlary that planted protesters in her audience with signs that read "Iron My Shirt"? And the Secret Service could not find any witnesses at McCain rallies that shouted "Off with his head" and "Kill him"? All brought to you by the liberal weenie party and the mainstream media that carries their water.

Looks like a Karl Rove stunt. Drudge loves Karl Rove stunts. All Republican/Conservatives love Karl Rove Stunts. Barnum and Bailey love Stunts by Karl Rove. They are in the same type of business. Stunts by Rove are so daring and dangerous, and most of the time deceiving. Joe the phony plumber was probably a Karl Rove stunt and Republican Plant. The whole thing was phony. It caused the entire $2500 to $65000 per year wage earners of Conservative Values to decry ever wanting to get to $250,000 because they did not want to pay those high Obama taxes. Ha Ha. Like conservatives I have actually heard say: "I would never want to win the Texas Lottery. I would have to "Pay all those taxes!"" This just shows how the Republicans make low income earners think that Republicans are really thinking of their haha "Middle Class" status. Hell, I wish I could pay tax on $250,000 a year this income tax season. Before, Now, or After Obama. Now I can understand why dumbass Conservatives would rather not make that much, because they can save so much money on taxes....... All Patriotic Americans would rather make minimum wage under Bush or Palin, than make a quarter mil under Obama. Oh, the stupidity, I mean, the Humanity.........

i put this warning out any terrorist who tries this type of attack simply shows what kinda of a man osama is he told his followers to get into people faces and now we see what he meant. god have mercy on any that try that with me for they will find them selves staring down the barrel of a gun i hope that this guy tries this agian and is caught and his voting rights taking away

thefirstmorning said...

I see Drudge's current headline (11:20 p.m.) is: "No Signs of Qaeda Election Threat."

Oh my.

He could have said there are "No Signs of Imminent Asteroid Hit" with as much validity.

9:47, What's stopping you from paying taxes on 250 thousand? Just write the IRS a check. I'm sure they would take it. It would be highly patriotic of you to do according to the brilliant Joe Biden. Even Clinton thinks he should pay more because he claims and loves to tell how rich he is but yet he can't seem to write a check for more than the amount he owes. But before you wrap your pea brain around that, just remember that it's all about that three letter word, JOBS.

Sounds like a so-called "hate crime" to me. Everyone knows (especially wordkyle) that "hate crimes" are "special rights". It doesn't matter what her political views are or why she was attacked. She is not entitled to "special rights". Just another random mugging.

12:08 three letter word J-O-B-S ??
gee that's wise county if i ever saw it.

How long would CBS, CNN, ABC, etc. wait to post pictures and report the story if the victim had been a black Obama supporter/worker and the criminal been white? About five minutes? Come on Barry, show us a picture. Why the link?

Amazing how she gets hit in the back of the head and she has a black eye. With no swelling what so ever.

And she was assaulted at a Citizens Bank, not a BoA like she was looking for on her Twitter.

7:14, Keep up with current events. The three letter words was a jab at your brilliant VP candidate Joe Biden. He use that in a speech last week.

No way could someone hold me down long enough or still enough to carve a perfect backward 'B'.

Why didn't the girl carved an "O" in her face - No backwards to it.
