Everyone who has paid any attention at all to Joe Lieberman's political career knows he is one of the slimiest and low down dirty players in American politics... always has been. But posting fake blogs in the name of Barack Obama and Harry Reid is downright bizarre. According to today JOURNAL INQUIRER from north-central Connecticut, the FBI has been brought in on the case. "A Hartford lawyer says the FBI has agreed to investigate postings promoting Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman's re-election on a popular Connecticut-based Internet 'blog' in the names of Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill. Bruce D. Rubenstein, a former finance chairman for the Democratic State Central Committee and a Lieberman critic, said Wednesday that an agent in the FBI's Meriden office told him the agency would probe the postings on the 'Connecticut Local Politics' Web log run by an Enfield man, Chris Bigelow."

Obama confirms that Lieberman's postings were fake and that he never authorized Lieberman to use his name for anything and an Obama spokesman pointed that whoever in Lieberman's camp posted the fake comments spelled Obama's name wrong. A Reid spokesman also told the press that Reid had never posted the Lieberman nonsense either. The fake May 4 Harry Reid message that the Lieberman camp posted said that the Minority Leader is urging "you to support my friend, Joe Lieberman, when you convene with your fellow delegates" and "then when you cast your vote in the Aug. 8 primary."

And 3 days later the Lieberman camp struck again with a forged Obama post claming he was urging "progressives and moderates alike" to join him "and Harry Reid in support of Joe Lieberman at your convention and again on Aug. 8." Other fake Lieberman posts viciously attacked Lamont backers in Reid's name. Like Republicans caught in the act always do, Lieberman's campaign denies knowing anything about this.

Looks like Joe hired Karl Rove to be his campaign manager afterall.

This is wonderful. And note that it represents yet another applicaion of my old principle of "reality-substitute," the man-made synthetic that's more real, or at any rate more pleasant, than the real thing.

Here's how it works:

(1) By now everyone will concede Jivin' Joe the base premise: Youse didn't do nuttin' wrong if youse dint get caught.

(2) "But that's just the thing," you say. "Our Joe, poor Joe, he did get caught! Who do you think is responsible for those bogus webpages?" Which is where reality-substitute comes in.

"Caught," after all, is such a vague, subjective concept. And in the 21st century, it appears that you're not caught unless you say you're caught. Like "Duke" Cunningham—like all that time, when there was the same amount of evidence, he wasn't caught, and then suddenly he was blubbering his guts out. That was his way of saying, "OK, I'm caught."

(3) And besides, Senator Joe's henchmorons did spell Harry Reid's name right on "his" webpage, didn't they? That's one out of two. And in baseball if you batted .500 you'd get elected to the Hall of Fame so fast, you wouldn't know what hit you. They'd not only waive the five-year-wait rule, they'd probably feed you cookies and lemonade.

I think the FBI should also be investigating this so called Attorney Bruce D. Rubenstein. He should be disbarred from practicing law, as well as being involved in any Political doings.

Not a very moral, ethical attorney by no means.
