Hoax

Turns out the McCain staffer attack was a hoax.

I'm absolutely sure the McPalin campaign had nothing at all to do with this -- and yet -- their continuous attempts to rouse the lowest part of our humanity (fear, prejudice) probably helped spawn the strange, made-up story of the 6' 4" black man taking out his rage on a defenseless white woman. Isn't that what it's been insinuated we should fear, that 4 years of Obama will include revenge on whitey?

Karma has a way of finding you and kicking your ass when it's due and I have no doubt that this story -- which spread like wildfire after the pied piper of the right, Matt Drudge, posted it on his site -- will be unhelpful to McCain in the end.
