Lieberman Lies Again: Crashed His Own Website, Blamed Lefty Bloggers

They created a media frenzy at the time.
I started transcribing this video [Ed: In the window to your right] from Lamont/Lieberman primary day 2006 but frankly I'm just too pissed to do it. Although the FBI investigation in to the incident was concluded in 2006, due to the perseverance of the Stamford Advocate the results were revealed today, and found what we all know to be true at the time -- no blogger hacked into Joe's website.

Joe Lieberman crashed his own website.

But that didn't matter. Joe needed a way to own the news cycle, and gave it to himself by flapping his lying weasel lips all day long for the benefit of the cameras. And they let him. Over and over again. Watch the clip of Matthews talking to LieberLiar Sean Smith (who went on to teach at Yale about how to run a campaign). Matthews then made Ned Lamont come on and distance himself from blogger terrorists who would do such a thing. Which Ned did.
