WTF, over? Fox news editor John Moody:
If Ms. Todd’s allegations are proven accurate, some voters may revisit their support for Senator Obama, not because they are racists (with due respect to Rep. John Murtha), but because they suddenly feel they do not know enough about the Democratic nominee.
If the incident turns out to be a hoax, Senator McCain’s quest for the presidency is over, forever linked to race-baiting.
This is as dumb as attempting to blame Obama for what some jackass mugger allegedly did- how in the hell is it John McCain’s fault that some crazy-ass volunteer faked a crime? How could this possibly be pinned on McCain? Why should it hurt him at all?
If this story had been true, it would not have been Obama’s fault and anyone trying to score political points would be wrong. Likewise, this is not McCain’s fault, and it should have no impact on his campaign.
Please stop all the damned stupid.

Am I wrong? Did I miss the McCain team pushing this story? Because I do not remember anything from them on it.
