Al Qaeda R IN UR httpd.conf files!

Where's Rita Katz when you need her to save us!? My god, Al Qaeda were able to misconfigure Liebermans httpd.conf's file! If only Chertoff had been in control sooner, he could recruit engineers to defend against such cyber attacks.

(P.S. Is Wikipedia correct and Michael Chertoff the son of a Mossad agent?, or do we blame terrorists for that too? )

Lamont was a douche, so if this "honest mistake" had any effect in the outcome of the election, it was clearly a positive one.

"honest mistake"?

Classic.

"clear evidence" when an investigation found none = sysadmin w/no shame

Clearly the sysadmin (probably jobless, by now) was the most savvy of the bunch ... and apparently that's none too savvy.

Can a politician of Likudman's "quality" make an "honest mistake"?

Didn't think so. And I'm not hiding behind an AC.

Mine's the one with the "No Fox News Guarding the Henhouse" button.
