Of course it's 99.9% likely a hoax, and 99.8% likely domestic and by an idiot who's not even organized enough to be decent at crude criminality, but there you go.

Rewrote... to clear up badly misleading wording that suggested that McCain himself "received" the letter. He didn't. It was opened by a poor staffer.


UPDATE: Timing Successfully Questioned by DKos.

On a day when McCain shows his true elitist reality, not knowing how many houses he owns, the Republican has two personal attack adds and an Anthrax scare as a response.

Think about that. Squelch. This is straight up Psy-Ops. But I think the white powder story is to obvious to be viewed as a coincidence. I believe there will be a backlash.

C'mon, McFailure is finally getting hammered "emotionally" by Obama and "Oh, shit, break out the Anthrax." Man they are transparent. It's clearly some wag the dog bullshit.

So, uhhhh.... The mailer knew McCain would make the number-of-homes gaffe two days ago when he placed the letters in the mail?

Is he suggesting McCain's gaffe was pre-planned? If that was the plan, to cover the gaffe with the fake anthrax... um, why not just avoid the gaffe in the first place?

Reaity-based. Layers.


Thanks to Hollowpoint.
