A woman gets a black eye – without damage to the eyeballs themselves – that looks suspiciously like smeared mascara. The letter ‘B’ is carved into her face – backwards – in a knife attack where the attacker’s touch was so delicate that he didn’t even break the skin. Incredible. Quite literally, as it turns out:

For those who already know what this about, I invite you to experience the satisfaction of watching Ashley Todd do a classic perp-walk:

Ashley Todd has left a long and varied vapour-trail behind, but the most revealing content so far is this carefully-laid trail of bullshit that she left via her Twitter account [more] [more]. Keep in mind that the story that Todd eventually gave to police (just before her arrest) was that she was driving around and “came up with a plan” to manufacture a story about being attacked at a Bloomfield ATM by a black man who was enraged by her John McCain bumper sticker. It’s at this stage that the twittering begins:

atodd: Stubbornly searching for a bank of america to avoid ATM fees.

atodd: Pretty sure I’m on the wrong side of pittsburgh

[Dun-dun-dahhhh! “Gawrsh, it sure is spooky in here this baaaaad neighbourhood. I hope nothing happens to me. Oooh, look – a ‘vote Obama’ poster! I hope I don’t get raped or something! Oh my goodness, I’m about to be cut off mid senten*….”]
[dramatic sting]
[commercial break]

atodd: Oh the blog I will be making soon… Its been a rough night #litf08

[Ashley Todd then makes her false claims of an attack. Later she returns to thank the more gullible members of her audience.]

atodd: Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and prayers- I’m phonebanking so let’s all work together and get John McCain elected #litf08

Also worth a mention is her MySpace profile that (before it suddenly went private) shared this munged song title with the world::

“Lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her cloths off, but its better if you do.” – Ashley Todd

Mat Bowles notes that John Moody, Executive Vice-President of Fox news, said: “If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain’s quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting.” [more] (So they’re calling the election a little bit early. Again.)

Wonkette notes the helpful contribution of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, a local right-wing newspaper, while Barry Green and note the essential role played by Matt Drudge. [more] (Psst! Drudge is often cited by our cheap carbon-copy, Paul Staines as his primary role model.)

Michelle Malkin has dutifully repeated some outright bulldust in her time, but even she wasn’t going for this. (So it’s her fault that Tinkerbell is dead!)

It cannot be stressed enough that a McCain campaign Communications Director pushed this story, and both John McCain and Sarah Palin called Ashley Todd on Thursday 23rd “to express their concern”. There should be at least one resignation over this, and it should happen today.

Finally, it needs to be highlighted that Ashley Todd is annoyed with the media for publicising her sick publicity stunt! (Ahahahahahahaha! F**king hellski; she could give lessons in projection and sheer bloody cheek to Iain Dale; “I would’ve got away with it, if it weren’t for those meddling kids the peddling I did!”)

    This so reminds me of the dickhead ex-skinhead I ran across years ago who decided to put a DIY tattoo of the word 'SKINS' right across his forehead and, unfortunately, forgot the slight problem that using a mirror can create for the unwary.And yes, the guy was desperately saving up to pay for laser surgery to remove the tattoo at the time, having had to grow a fringe to hide that fact that the word 'SNIKS' appeared in large friendly blue letters across his brow.

    Hahahahaha!I've been meaning to have a chat with you local lads about that; over the decades Viz has all but guaranteed that one day I would meet a man in a pub who had 'ACAB' (or perhaps 'BACA') tattooed to his forehead, but I have yet to encounter such a beast.Is this a northern thing, or am I just hanging out at the wrong pubs?

  3. Sim-O says

    I once met a bloke in a pub and wondered what the blue stuff was on the outside of his bottom lip.He showed me. He had 'ACAB' tattoo'd on the inside of his bottom lip.Surprisingly it read correctly when he pulled his lip down.Once you knew it was there you could make it out on the outside, as the ink had 'seeped through'.

  4. Manic says

    Ouch. I did that by writing onto the inside of a rubber mask once, so I'm only 160 miles away from understanding how he feels.
