As I write this, about 84% of the precincts in Connecticut have reported, and Ned Lamont holds a 4% lead in the Senate primary there. So I’m not sure what happened in Connecticut, for sure, yet. But I do have some idea of what happened in Connecticut. Sort of.
The Leiberman campaign, for the last two months or so, has claimed as its sworn enemy the crazy liberal blogosphere. They kept this line of attack open to the very last day, when they claimed that they had been of the victim of what, in the blogosphere, would constitute some kind of capital offense: a denial of service attack against their server. (By the way, speaking as a web professional, that claim is the stupidest thing I ever heard. If the campaign had called our office yesterday at 3 pm, we would have had their website back up by the close of business yesterday.)
Tell you what though: Leiberman was right, the liberal blogosphere is behind this. Sort of. What’s really happening?
