Police say she was very polite and very cooperative, however they have discovered she has a history of mental problems.

It's really a shame that in 2008 we have two really divided sides whether it be political or social. Both the Republicans and the Democrats should be appalled at their respective parties. This young lady inciting division and ACORN doing the same. You know racism still exists but it is perpetrated by blacks just as much by whites and I know some will read this and say, "Oh he must be white". Well I am and my wife is Black and she feels the same way. Pulling the race card when it's convenient to someone just means they're to lazy to handle adversity like a civil, responsible hard working American. Apparently I'm racist, according to some, because I've chosen to point out someone's lack of executive experience. Lack of leadership and political knowledge. How sad. Can't we just debate the issues like adults, based on facts, voting records and political affiliations, personal or otherwise. This is a Democracy after all. We all have loved ones we need to look after. Let's all try and reach the middle all the while pulling ourselves up from the muck and mire. We live in the best Country in the world. We need to protect that. God bless you all, even the ones who may not like me.

I just knew it would be fake! This story wasn't believable from the start! I'm no McCain supporter but come on guys, McCain didn't make her do this, she did this herself because she's delusional and wanted her 15 minutes of fame. We don't need people like that in Pittsburgh, whether you're a Republican or Democrat. She needs to go back to Texas.

Party 'till you die!    

It's about time the truth came out! This Evil Piece of Crap should be prosecuted to the full extent! She blatantly lied about politics and race and then topped it off with a false police report! And what are all the idiot McCainiacs going to do now? They screamed and cried some horrible horrible conspiracies about Obama and people voting for him and now they look like complete fools and have shown what nasty, vile people they are! But seeing as some of them are as screwed up as this lady, it will be interesting to see the attempts they will make at trying to twist this around! To these people, it doesn't matter if it's true, only if there is something negative they can scream about in a vain attempt to get some of it to stick in the minds of the soft of brained! Well too bad! You are now eating your foul words! Enjoy the bitter taste!

Let's get one thing straight.

This stupid bitch does not represent McCain supporters. Don't pin her on us.

I have always doubted this story and I am glad that the bitch was called out. Now thanks to her, all McCain supporters will be perceived as nuts (as though there aren't any liberal nutjobs out there).

Send the bitch to jail!

Is she so stupid that she doesn't even know that when you look in a mirror that things are reversed? She is so stupid she would drown in a lake trying to save herself if she saw her own reflection.
