Another High Tech Mugging

You knew something didn't seem right, didn't you? Someone said last night that these sort of crimes always have the same outcome – they we're made up by the alleged victim. And Republicans now have their Susan Smith – a big black guy attacked her and stole her kids.

In this case, the big black guy must have been a dyslexic known as Borro, which explains why he carved a reverse "B" in her face. And why, unlike the Zorro character, he put a mask on her.

Just kidding about the mask… and he apparently didn't have a paper bag… James Taranto picks up the story…

Todd described her "attacker" as "a dark-skinned black man, 6 feet 4 inches tall," an obvious appeal to invidious stereotypes of extremely tall men. The Smoking Gun has an image of Todd's Twitter page, in which she seems to give a play-by-play account of the putative mugging (quoting verbatim; each line is a separate entry; the first three an hour apart, the last one three hours after the penultimate one):

This traffic in pittsburgh needs to go away!!!! #litf08

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

Pretty sure I'm on the wrong side of pittsburgh.

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

This seems like very odd behavior–though for all we know, it's what Twitterers (Twits?) do.

Exactly. And what this demonstrates the basic difference between liberals and conservatives, at least some of them: conservatives are nuts.. liberals are evil.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.
