Political Bullshit

You may have heard about the woman who recently got her story all over the place, saying that she'd been mugged at an ATM, and when the attacker saw she had a McCain bumper sticker he beat her and carved a "B" in her face. The story did not sit well with me, just too many oddities in the story:

- at an ATM, but out of range of the cameras
- refused any sort of medical treatment
- pictures show that the B is backwards, and doesn't look all that "carved" to me
- her description of the attacker boiled down to " average black man in black clothes"
- and, really, you're robbing someone at an ATM, why you gonna stick around and get political?

Sorry, I didn't buy it at all. Apparently, neither did the cops. They gave her a lie-detector test, and started looking at some inconsistencies in her story...and she changed her tune. Now, she claims she was knocked unconscious, doesn't remember being cut, and only discovered the wound later. If that's true, where did this description come from, and how would you have known that this was due to your McCain sticker?

This keeps slipping closer and closer to the "Lying Bitch" category. Seriously, you aren't helping anyone's campaign with this stupidity. It's this kind of crap (this is an extreme example, but still...) that makes me LOATHE politics and the whole political hype season that takes over this country. People don't think, they don't try to be even halfway intelligent, they just leap on it and go apeshit. Too many people voting one party or the other, simply because they always have and their family has. Too many people ignoring basic issues and instead choosing based on skin color, religion, and emotion.

I hate it all, and I refuse to be part of it...and by that, I mean the fighting, the politics, and the general asinine brouhaha that hits this place like a tsunami of hate and continues to fuck this country over.

EDIT: Yep, she lied.
