The unhappy young woman who claimed a big black man carved a 'B' on her face has admitted she made everything up.
She'll face charges from the Pittsburgh police, who were neither deceived nor amused.
We learned a few things however.
Matt Drudge was very keen on the story, he believed it immediately and deeply. Matt Drudge is a racist idiot.
Michelle Malkin is less stupid that Matt Drudge. Who knew? She wasn't fooled.
McCain and Palin both personally called Todd. They are desperate ... and credulous.
A Fox news exec said proof the story was false would doom McCain's bid -- because it would show he was so desperate he'd resort to race baiting.
He was right about playing into race baiting. In a rational nation this would indeed doom Palin/McCain, but that's not our world.
