Fox News Columnist John Moody:

It had to happen.

Less than two weeks before we vote for a new president, a white woman says a black man attacked her, then scarred her face, and says there was a political motive for it.

Ashley Todd, a 20-year-old white volunteer for John McCain’s presidential campaign, says she was mugged at an ATM machine in Pittsburgh (my hometown) by a big black man. She further says he threw her down, then disfigured her by carving the letter “B” into her face with a sharp implement when he saw that she supported McCain, not Barack Obama.
"It had to happen?" Translation: "Let a nigger run for President, the niggers will get violent." Isn't that what "It had to happen" means?

John's column also said this:
If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain’s quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting.
He said this because the McCain campaign had been pushing this story to the press so fervently. Moody has been oddly silent since the story broke that this was a hoax.

I guess it didn't have to happen after all.


One of the beautiful side effects of Barack Obama running for president is that if you weren't really clear on which of your friends are racists, it's trivially easy to smoke them out now.

Over a year ago I made a $50 wager with a co-worker that the next president of the US would be either a black person, a woman or a person of Mormon faith. I wanted Catholic too but he insisted that since there had been one Catholic president before it wouldn't be a first, so I couldn't have that one. Bye Bye Rudy.

Last week he came into the office and said with a smirk "If Obama wins, do I only have to pay you $25?"

I responded "Let me ask you this: If your daughter married him, would you only be half as angry?"

"I see your point," he replied.
