"B" is for bullshit

If you read the Drudge Report, you saw this face posted prominently on the site - a young Texas woman and McCain volunteer allegedly the victim of an ATM robbery-turned-political assault with a backwards "B" scratched into her cheek. "B" for Barack, it's to be assumed.

The McCain camp released a statement after the initial report: "We're shaken by this. It's disgusting."

Maybe it was the fact that the "B" was backwards, or the idea that a knife-wielding robber would take the time to make such a crude political statement, but the story sounded made up to me. And it was. She's now confessed to cops.

Drudge, to his credit, linked to the story about the confession.

I think the "B" stands for something else (clue: it rhymes with "itch")
