Never Ends Well

Ooo boy. You know it’s going to be good when one campaign has some big website meltdown and accuses the other campaign of website sabotage. Today it’s incumbent Texas Gov. Rick Perry accusing his political opponents (he doesn’t say Kay Bailey Hutchison directly, but certainly seems to be implying it) of being responsible for making his website crash during a live video webcast.

The eventual denouement is almost always a few weeks later when the police find it was some server configuration error or simple overload. It happened memorably and humiliatingly to Joe Lieberman back in 2006. Though he’s still in the senate, so I guess he had the last laugh.
