The Locker Room

Another hoaxed political assault

Posted by Jon Sanders at 11:47 AM

Maybe it's only during an election year that Republicans do this sort of thing (generally the purview of the hyperpolitical Left), I don't know, but that woman who faked being mugged and then, when her supposed mugger (a black guy!) saw her McCain bumper sticker, carved "B" in her face well, she made the same elementary mistake that other carving hoaxers have made: wrote the letter backwards.

One advantage of when Republicans fake a political crime is the media are more inclined to follow up and report that it was a hoax. Otherwise, they'll just let the story die away (remember the cross burnings in Durham?).
