Bullet Shatters Window on McCain's Straight Talk Express

It looks like Obama supporters have escalated beyond beating women with their own McCain signs:

(Sunday, October 19 — Filed by Mark Williams in Raton, New Mexico with the Stop Obama Tour) We learned at this morning’s Stop Obama Rally here that the McCain/Palin Straight Talk Express came through town yesterday. It arrived with a window shattered by a .22 caliber weapon.

The bus had also been hit with "an unknown number of paint balls from a paint ball gun or guns." Neither candidate was on board, not that the attackers would know that. Sarah Palin has been stumping in New Mexico.

Things are going to get scary if the media is able to put Obamunists in control of the country.

On a tip from J.


This story lacks confirmation. See the Weekly Standard for more details (on a tip from Lyle). If only the mainstream media were ethical enough to do its job objectively, it would be much easier to determine what stories are true.

Never happened. Yet another Republican Myth. America is so bored of this stuff. With tons of reporters traveling with each campaign there would be pictures and lots of facts. Sorry but the odor on this one is too much to handle.

Then go and gather facts to disprove this claim, muffler, instead flapping your 'e-gums'.

Further, muffler, if this had been a story (factual or not factual) about the same thing happening to a Nobama bus, you and your fellow Moonbats (as well as the lib media) would be in hysterics.

muffer you assert the shooting never happened. Prove it!

According to Mark Williams who was a passenger on the bus, he gave an account of shots fired at the McCain-Palin Straight Talk Express.

The fact that it's NOT reported by the msm is proof that it is real. If it were faked, they'd have a field day with that.

This conversation is doing nothing towards getting Obama in the Whitehouse.

If it happened to Obama's bus we would be inundated with news bulletins about the "assasination attempt" on Obama's life.

But since it's just McCain's bus, no biggy.

It's a good thing it happened to the McCain bus and not the Hope-Mobile...The Obama Camp would pull a Sarah Brady and be insulted that their messiah was shot at with a cheap, low-powered weapon.

All politics aside, at least no one was injured or killed.

"muffer you assert the shooting never happened. Prove it!"

Lee Ann
The burden of proof is on the person who made the accusation, not the accused. Familiar with science and the criminal justice system. Mark Williams was NOT on the bus...he says as much in the article you posted. He was on a Stop Obama campaign that arrived the NEXT DAY. Get you facts straight.

Responsible people learn the facts before posting this type of information. Its very easy to do - call the authorities. You don’t have to rely on MSM, you don’t have to believe my word:

Raton city police (575) 445-2704
Colfax County sheriff dept (575) 445-5561
NM State police in Raton (575) 445-5571

IT NEVER HAPPENED. But Mark Williams wants you to believe it did. He removed every post made with these telephone numbers on his website, specifically to hide the truth from you and exacerbate his lie.

Hatred is not the answer. People like Williams who promote hatred, division, name calling and stovepiping 50% of the country are serving the very terrorists they accuse liberals of being by causing division. Does this make him better than any of them - or for that matter, better than a terrorist himself? That is exactly what he has done - incite terror.

We are one country, one America, and we all want what is best for ourselves and our families. Mark Williams is not one of those people. He has deliberately lied, and has done everything so far to hide the truth.

This is just a disgrace, and Mark Williams is about as disgraceful as it gets for perpetrating his self-serving lie.

Yep, I think it has been soundly debunked.
