What becomes of College Republican idiots when they grow up?

They become right wing blogger idiots, obviously. 

In case you hadn’t caught the tale, a College Republican named Ashley Todd claimed that she was assualted by a 6’4” 200 lb. black male.   She alleged the event occured after she withdrew $60 from an ATM in the “wrong” part of Pittsburgh, as she Twittered to her friends.  She said the thief became so enraged when he saw her McCain bumper sticker that he punched her and then proceeded to hold her down and carve a “B” in her face. 

That there were holes in that account big enough to drive Todd Palin’s snowmachine through was not enough to deter Matt Drudge from issuing a breaking news alert complete with the flashing siren.  Eager rightie bloggers, including a local site that shall remain nameless (the one with the manly western-y cowboy themed banner) were salivating over this tale that involved a nubile flower of white womanhood being ravaged (oh yes, she claimed he sexually assaulted her) by a big scary….you know.   They were wetting themselves in excited anticipation.  McCain and Palin didn’t waste any time either, both called the victim personally to console her.

They might have wanted to take a good look at the photo of the “victim” before they jumped on the story.

And they might wish they’d recalled a man by the name of Morton Downey Jr., who pulled a similar stunt in 1989. He also didn’t figure that mirror thing out.  Only Mort was doing it to save his sagging TV show and he blamed skinheads.  Despicable, but far less dangerous than what that nasty little College Republican did. It’s been reported that she’s had past mental problems, but she was clearly functional enough to make up a vicious racebaiting lie. I hope they throw the book at her.

And I sincerely hope that Matt Drudge is ruined over this.

Here’s a little fun fact for my readers: Back when I was a Divakateer, growing up in Silver Spring, Maryland I attended high school with Matt Drudge. I didn’t go to classes or socialize with him but I remember that he wasn’t very well liked. As I recall, his unpopularity stemmed mostly from his smug, disagreeable nature. Not that it has anything to do with it, nor that there’s anything wrong with it, but everyone knew he was gay. That’s right GOPers, yet another hero of yours is a bitter, closeted gay man. As Republicans, you must be getting accustomed to these revelations by now, but we Democrats are getting more than a little tired of you moralizing at us while your hypocrites take their self-loathing out on the rest of the country.  Drudge was the hateful little turd who brought us the Lewinsky scandal and who rose to undue prominence because of it. He’s a moron and his website looks like it was designed by an eight year old with a crayon. His 15 minutes were up 10 years ago.

Speaking of College Republicans and local right wing pundits, conservative AZ blogs are currently having a collective case of the vapors over alleged instances of gasp! sign stealing by Young Democrats. So much angst and handwringing about those horrible leftist rapscallions and how they are hastening the decline of humanity with their shocking incivility. Yeah right. Here are some things the little darlings of the College Republicans have gotten up to in recent years: “Catch the illegal immigrant” games and ripping off the elderly with fundraising scams. Those apples don’t fall far from the tree, do they?

    Of course, it’s an open question as to whether Ms. Todd has grown up, by all appearances.

    Sign stealing? Is that they best they’ve got? May I suggest a little bit of cheese to go with that fine whine?

    Righteous rant, Donna.
