That Alleged Political Mugging Incident

Michelle Malkin is skeptical about the woman's claims.

So am I. She's got the black eye and the facial marking, but the story doesn't add up. I tossed out some random thoughts at Transterrestiral Musings:

I have a hard time that she would keep her head still enough for the perp to carve that "B" on her face.

Note this detail:

"She told police the man then sat on her chest, pinning both her hands down with his knees and used what she believed was a dull knife with a roughly 5-inch blade to carve the B"

(Link via a skeptical Michelle Malkin.)

That means that her head was right side up when the mugger carved it (if that's what happened).

Maybe it's an underlined M instead of a B?

Actually, it looks like two thirds of the EIB logo

Look at her pic in the Malkin post. The skin isn't even broken. What kind of a mugger carries a knife that dull? I've seen butter knives sharper than that.

If it weren't for the letter carving allegation, this would be dog-bites-man. Of course muggers are offended by the party that's tougher on law enforcement.
