Say It Ain't So, Joe!

Lieberman’s campaign website has been the target of a vicious (vicious I say!) denial of service attack. So, if you couldn’t access it this morning, that’s the reason.

The Web site, http://www.joe2006.com, has been unavailable since Monday afternoon, and Lieberman campaign manager Sean Smith suggested that the campaign of senator’s primary opponent, Ned Lamont, or his supporters were responsible for the disruption.

“This type of dirty politics has been a staple of the Lamont campaign from the beginning, from the nonstop personal attacks to the intimidation tactics and offensive displays to these coordinated efforts to disable our Web site,” said Smith in a statement e-mailed to reporters Monday evening.

“There is no place for these Rovian tactics in Democratic politics, and we demand that our opponent calls off his supporters and their online attack dogs.”

This can only hurt America’s healthcare, as I’m sure it is costing Lieberman the primary as we speak.

“I think I’ll brush up on the two candidates before I head to the polls…hmm…Lieberman’s website doesn’t work. He must not care about informing the voters of his opinion. Ned Lamont it is then.”

At least we got a new word out of it – Rovian.
