I posted this with the original OP Title


SERIOUSLY, PEOPLE: THIS COULD MEAN A REAL PROBLEM FOR OBAMA'S CHANCES IN THE ELECTION!!!!!!!

(Because we're not doomed and no this email or that FOX News meme or donald trumps revelation of what he found in his ass hair combover or any of this other bargle isn't going to change the fundamentals of this election the last week in October. You heard it here, first. Now Get out and vote.)

But I'm not a sadist, so I've toned it down. Still, that's a point worth remembering, especially when you read garment-rending, hair-tearing panic and doom threads.

6. This was from the 2008 campaign...

A McCain volunteer claimed she had been attacked by Obama supporters. It later turned out that she staged the "attack" herself.

15. Don't you remember Miss Backwards B from the last campaign?

She did that to herself and pretended it was some awful Dems that did it to her!

She had a bit of trouble with the mirror, though--hence the reversed letter!

I'm guessing the OP is talking about "The Donald's" claim that he has an October surprise.

4. Wasn't this from the 2008 election?

IF I remember correctly, this story broke in 2008, the woman claimed Obama supporters beat her up and scarred her~

Again, IF I remember correctly, it was also a hoax.

Any responses?

17. Don't remember all of the details, but she did it to herself.

Note that the "B" cut into her face is from her using a mirror.

However, my intent is not to upset anyone. Really. I'll change the OP.

18. Don't feel badly--I remembered.

I laughed at that dumb fool then, and I laughed again just now.

Someone with photoshop skills should try putting a backwards B and a black eye on "the Donald."

How could that punk know that? Has the Benghazi attack been planned this long? Incredible!

The claim now is that Obama never went to Harvard at all; he was a classmate of...







Billy Bob's!
