I could comment on this article as being another repudiation of the CW that a monolithic group of Clinton insiders — and thus somehow Clinton himself — is dead set against Howard Dean, but I want to focus instead on the very last thing in the article. Check out the e-mail address Sidney Blumenthal gave to the Guardian. Yes, that’s right: Sidney_Blumenthal@yahoo.com.
Do you mean to tell me that the right-hand man of the former American president and current Godfather of the Democratic party can not find an e-mail address more fitting his station than a ghetto free Yahoo account? I mean, Sid. Come on. SBlumenthal.com is totally not taken. And it looks like SidneyBlumenthal.com has been registered by a D.C. consultant (with, I might add, an only slightly less ghetto AOL address… dodgy!), whose kneecaps I’m sure you can have broken if he’s not authorized to use your name or likeness or whatever.
I mean, I’m pretty certain that any e-mail addressed to Sidney_Blumenthal@yahoo.com would receive a reply from Mailer-Daemon@LeadersOfTheFreeWorld.net entitled “Hapless Peon, Your Request for Communication Has Been Denied; Prepare to Die,” but still, that is like the lamest calling card ever.
