Didn’t Joe Lieberman Run for the White House with the Man who Invented the Internet?

(Updated Wednedsay morning): There’s this priceless bit of politics being played out in Connecticut: Sen. Joe Lieberman, once Al Gore’s running mate, was up against it in the Democratic primary–and then his campaign’s website goes down?  Look for yourself: http://www.joe2006.com/.  As you’ve probably already read, he lost by four points to Ned Lamont, who made his millions in cable TV.  Lieberman’s campaign manager, Sean Smith, accused Lamont supporters of hacking the site.  Smith, quoted by AP: "If Ned Lamont has a backbone in his body, he will call on these people to cease and desist." But The Daily Kos has a different take on what happened: "I have the definitive answer as to why Lieberman’s site went down. "They are paying $15/month for hosting at a place called MyHostCamp, with a bandwidth limit of 10GB. MyHostCamp is currently down, along with all their clients. "Here’s the deal — you get what you pay for. My hosting bill is now over $7K per month. A smaller site doesn’t need that much bandwidth, but if you’re paying $15 because your $12 million campaign is too freakin’ cheap to pay for quality hosting, then don’t go blaming your opponent when your [insert mild curse word here] service goes out."We have a piece on Kos’ power HERE.    Meanwhile, my fellow ABC blogger, Jake Tapper, has a take on bloggers’ role in the race HERE.
