(no subject)

So some 20 year old Rethuglican campaign worker from College Station fakes her own mugging at the hands of the all-too-conveniently-stereotypical 6'4" 200 lb faceless scary black man, who, outraged at her McCain sticker carved a "B" into her face with a dull knife.

Of course, since she did it in a mirror, the B was backwards.  Also, she couldn't keep her story straight for five minutes.

I swear, the ensuing Aggie jokes are just gonna write themselves.

On one hand, I'm filled with schadenfreude over this after the way the right wing hate machine was creaming itself over the story yesterday.

On the other hand, I'm disgusted, because it just shows how deeply seated racism still is in my home state.  I hope the girl is prosecuted for wasting the time of the police, and then gets help.
