The pitiful sociopath who faked a mugging with political overtones that would reflect badly on Obama, represents, you guessed it: pitiful sociopaths. Super stalker Todd Palin might have done something like this but he no more represents the conservative right than his fellow nut case Alaska Independence Party members. Bizarre zealotry knows no political boundaries. Nut cases attach themselves to the corpus of a cause like leeches. Nothing McCain or Palin have said or represented has ever given the slightest encouragement to behavior like this. I'm trying to find out if she really carved a mirror image "B" on her face. For years my favorite piece of graffiti on I-88 was "I love you adniL." The vandal almost made it, but hanging upside down from an overpass sent too much blood to his meth-addled brain and and he screwed up the most important part of the message. From the video, it appears Ashley Todd had a similar problem with perspective. This is not a political story unless the wingnut blogosphere begins talking about the elitist, left wing bias of the Pittsburgh Police Department.
