[Update: Surprise! It's a hoax!] A woman in Pittsburgh was mugged and beaten near an ATM last night by "a dark-skinned black man, 6 feet 4 inches tall, 200 pounds with a medium build, short black hair and brown eyes." She was robbed of $60. This wouldn't be news except that, according to the woman's testimony, the mugger "became angry when he saw a McCain bumper sticker on the victim's car. The attacker then punched and kicked the victim, before using the knife to scratch the letter 'B' into her face." Even then this wouldn't be news beyond the Pittsburgh Metro Area except that Matt Drudge has broken out the 72-point red font. Because he wishes to press the narrative he's been trying against the odds to push all month: that Democrats are becoming violent. So there you go. Do with this information what you will. File it right next to the person whose house was shot at because (or maybe not because!) they had a McCain sign up. According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the woman refused medical treatment after the Liberal Mugger attacked her. Update: Ok. Uh. We're just going to report this without comment: the 'B' appears to be backwards. (Drudge is currently leading with the same image, we have no idea where it came from.)
