Meet Nancy Takehara: An Obama campaign worker who was *actually* attacked.

It broke earlier this week that Nancy Takehara, 58, was canvassing for the Obama campaign in Wisconsin, when a man, now identified as 71 year-old Ronald Goetsch, accused her of working for ACORN, grabbed her hair, and struck her.  

At first glance it may sound similar to the Todd case, but in this instance we have an actual confession from the attacker.

Obama spoke directly to Nancy to check on her health, although the campaign has not released any official statement, other than to say that they take the safety of their campaign staff very seriously.

Details coming in about McCain campaign pushing Ashley’s bogus story

This epic post at talkingpointsmemo.com details how the Mccain camp was pushing this obviously false Ashley Todd attack, in an effort to incite race-based fear in Pennsylvania.  

According to the post, Mccain communications director Peter Feldman was providing a very inflated and incendiary version of Ashley’s story, citing facts far beyond  what police had been able to concern.

It is clear that the campaign pounced on this opportunity to stoke racial fears in hopes of stealing this election.  Besides pushing this false story prematurely, they released an incendiary press release, and managed to have both candidates call Ashley Todd and her family.  That sort of stuff does not happen without the blessing of campaign managers.

So much for the “honorable” campaign John McCain promised to run.

John Moody, FOX News VP predicts “McCain’s quest for presidency is over”

When there was still some doubt (in the minds of some), Moody predicted that McCain’s campaign would be irretreivably tied to race-baiting if this turned out to be a hoax.  

Well, it’s a hoax.

BREAKING NEWS: ASHLEY TODD HAS CONFESSED TO HER LIES!!!

Update: Link to full confession story

Thanks to all the tipsters who sent me information, including “c” for the news that she confessed.

The job isn’t done yet.   I want to see how early the Mccain campaign was involved in this mess.  I’m hearing reports that Todd called the Mccain campaign BEFORE calling the police.  Still looking for a source on that – any help?

In about 16 hours – this blog got well over 10,000 views and dozens of comments from fellow thinkers around the web.  Together, the blogosphere did what the mainstream media refuses to do, and debunked this story before it got too far.  

Thanks again – I’ll continue posting for a little while as this fizzles out.
