Cheap prick smears smart guy

WASHINGTON, D.C. (CNN)--Overpaid tools working for Joe Lieberman's "Fuck you, I know God" campaign say that "dirty politics" and "Rovian tactics" are to blame for what they call an "online attack" on their shitty, shared-host $15-dollar-a-month campaign Web site, as Connecticut voters headed to the polls Tuesday in record numbers.

The former Democratic vice presidential candidate and sanctimonious windbag is seeking his party's nomination for a fourth term to the Senate, and doesn't feel he should have to.

"Rovian" is a reference to White House ratfucker Karl Rove, whose strategy always involves playing as many lying, filthy tricks as possible, no matter how stupid they may seem, on the theory that one or two of them might work.

The Web site and its low-rent server crashed Monday afternoon as traffic increased on the eve of the election, and Lieberman campaign manager Sean Smith instantly began shrieking that they were under attack by the Lamont campaign, or that "bloggers" had somehow "hacked in," or something.

"This type of dirty politics has been a staple of the Lamont campaign from the beginning, from the nonstop personal attacks on the Senator's record to the intimidation tactics, like having a lot of Democrats show up at their events instead of a couple, and other offensive displays of popularity, to these coordinated efforts to disable our Web site," said Smith in a statement e-mailed from a Starbucks 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. And print this in your morning editions or I'll have you killed."

The Lamont campaign has denied any involvement. In fact, they offered to send their technicians over to help. The offer was refused.

When asked by reporters at a campaign stop Tuesday if he or his campaign was responsible for the incident, Lamont said, "No, it's that cheap bastard Lieberman. He should've ponied up for the bandwidth."
