Posted by on August 8 at 13:45 PM

Get your pre-poll-closing fix here, here, here, here, here, and here and, with news of a Connecticut Attorney General investigation into last-minute allegations of Lieberman web site hacking, here.

HIGHlarious:

Joe's site shares one server with 73 other sites. They pay $15/month for an overcrowded server, and then they blame others when it goes down?
what a gem.

Funny politician name definitions are the way to show these politico's what the people really think. Santorum was a good start. Let's all do what we can to get new definitions out there. Please add this Lieberman definition to your dictionary. -


Lieberman - noun - A clot of blood than forms on an infant's penis if the Rabbi doesn't suck the blood away quick enough. -- The Rabbi used his tongue to dislodge the Lieberman that had formed on the penis. (There are three stages required for the performance of a ritually correct circumcision in Jewish law: the removal of the foreskin; the tearing of the underlying membraene so as to expose the glans completely; and the sucking away of the blood, m'tsitsah)see- http://www.sexuallymutilatedchild.org/mohel.htm

Hey Stranger Staff, is this blood sucking allowed in Washington State. You want to rake muck? Here's muck--


The state of New York now requires that all cases of newborn herpes be reported. The mandate took effect May 12.
The decision to develop guidelines on oral-suction circumcision came after Monsey-based mohel Yitzchok Fischer — a rabbi trained in religious circumcision — was suspected of infecting three New York City babies with herpes in 2004. One died and another suffered brain damage. He was not charged in the cases.
Two additional cases of infant herpes through the oral-suction method were reported by physicians in 2005 in New York City. The identity of that mohel or mohels was not revealed.
The centuries-old practice, called metzizah bi peh or metzitzah b'peh, involves a mohel using his mouth to suction blood from the wound after the foreskin is removed. The ritual is performed by Hasidic and ultra-Orthodox Jews.
Most other Jewish mohels wear surgical gloves and use sterilized instruments to perform the circumcision rite. Many other mohels who perform the oral part of the ritual use a medical tube to suction the blood, several rabbis have said.
Fischer's attorney, Mark J. Kurzmann of Pearl River, has said there was no conclusive medical evidence that the infants contracted the virus from the rabbi. The rabbi took a herpes test, but the results have not been released by the state or the city.


Do anti-religion Seattle liberals know that The United States allows infant boys penis' getting sucked because the bible says so? If any other religious cult did this, people would go to jail.

The sacred practice of metzitzah b'peh is required in the Torah. It is central to Jewish Faith and America's constitution requires freedom to practice religion. The ritual is about much more than simply sucking the blood off the baby's penis. It is a profound opening to god. Washington State must allow this Constitutionally protected practice.

Hey all you super religious Seattle people. God tells some Jews to suck the blood of the mutilated genitles of baby boys. Christians don't want our kids to learn evolution, and Jews don't want our kids to have foreskins. Isn't religion great?

Check out the wikipedia posting-

Come on Eli. It's pretty clear that it's worth investigating whether the Lieberman campaign either sabotaged it's own website to galvanize Lieberman supporters with tales of out-of-control internet sabotage or used the fact that it's website was experiencing difficulties (due to shitty hosting, etc.) as an excuse to blame out-of-control internet crazies. I'm not paranoid. If you look at iunfo put out by the Lieberman campaign they claim that their website was under assault since yesterday morning. But their squeals of pain were only issued today. In either case the idea that the real facts can come out before the polls close is minimal.

This stinks. And the smell seems to be emanating most strongly from the Lieberman camp.

Has anybody else noticed that the trolls appear to be breeding?

a bunch of hooey - i've witnessed circumcisions before, get a frickin life.

yeah, wish we could send trolls to live in iraq.

Not to mention, what kind of morons can't get their site back up in 24 hours?

It's 99% certain they're making up the "haxx0rs".

If it's hooey, why is it in the New York Times?
