Shot Fired at McCain/Palin Straight Talk Express Bus?

Could you imagine the media hysteria if a shot was taken at an Obama campaign bus? Forget saturation coverage. Every show on every network would be interrupted and we'd be undergoing a media orgy over the climate of hate.

A McCain bus fired on? It's ignored.
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. It had also been hit by an unknown number of paint balls from a paint ball gun or guns. There were reportedly no injuries and neither candidate was on board.

One local man who saw the damage and spoke with the McCain/Palin staffers said the attack(s) had occured in southern New Mexico that same day. The Express is traveling the country independent of the candidates, handing out campaign materials.

Thanks to Hot Air for the link.

Update: Mary Katharine Ham notes the story seems pretty flimsy. It will be interesting to see if Williams has any furtehr updates or evidence to back this up. Otherwise, file under rumors.
