I'd love to say it's something new to see a story move from outrage to suspicion in the space of a single working day, but I'd be lying. Today we were presented with the story of Ashley Todd. This morning she was the victim of a brutal assault that seemed politically motivated. This afternoon we learn that the Pittsburgh police believe she made the whole thing up.
So, she goes from being the victim of a robbery and political attack to the perpetrator of a race-baiting hoax. Wow. Way to drum up sympathy for your guy, Ashley. And to add insult to injury, she's from Texas. Good news is, she's an Aggie. ; )
The best part is that the VP of Fox News put in his two cents and proclaimed this would be the end of John McCain's campaign if it was proven false. We can only hope.
