Ken Layne on Ashley Todd-Gate

We caught up with Wonkette‘s Ken Layne and asked him if he feels vindicated that Ashley Todd has now admitted to lying.

“Oh hell yes.” He told FBLA. “This isn’t the sad tale of some tragic loser who makes up a story to get attention or whatever. This evil little troll made a cold, calculated effort to give Pennsylvania to her candidate and her party leader, John McCain, with a foul racist fantasy deliberately constructed to horrify white people who had slowly been won over by Barack Obama. I hope she lives a hundred years and that nobody ever forgets her hideous stunt.”

Joe the Plumber, Sarah the Dink, John the Desperate and Ashley the Fabricator. Grand Old Party indeed.
