As The Ends Justify Those Pesky Means

It appears that somebody decided to launch a DoS attack against Senator Lieberman's campaign website and e-mail service on the eve of Election Day. Now, as Brendan Loy -- who I discovered because he is also interested in hurricanes -- points out, using an inexpensive shared server for a critical campaign resource isn't necessarily the best choice, since it is more vulnerable.

But this sort of shit just pisses me off. And before you ask, it would piss me off if somebody did it to Lamont too. Or some other candidate that I didn't care for, because we don't need this sort of shit in our electoral process.

Maybe I'm just reading the wrong websites, but I don't see reports of this happening to candidates that I don't approve of.

Or maybe the ends do justify the means and I'm just an old fogey.

But I don't think so.
