Holy CRAP. We always suspected as much, but this is just astonishing...and not in a good way. New court filing reveals how the 2004 Ohio presidential election was hacked:

All right, y'all - if anyone else is as depressed about the "Gang of Six" horseshit currently floating around DC, here's a little antidote for ya, in the form of the Gang of Four...complete with scratchy vinyl transfer for that authentic, early '80s feeling. Enjoy!

Most people I know from Twitter will have already seen this, but it's too important not to risk re-sharing for those who haven't. People who used to talk about a vast right-wing conspiracy were sometimes viewed with skepticism or even dismissed as kooks. Read this and you'll never have that reaction again:

Story
Introduction
I am currently a stay-at-home-dad (for those of you who don't understand the shorthand SAHD), CIO for the Olsson family (as well as lead repair technician, LOL), iPhone junkie, PTA booster, amateur epicurean and raconteur, gracelessly aging punk rocker and all-around fan of odd music. 

I am also the editor of the economics feed of Progressive Congress News (on Twitter @PCNEconomy). My idea of a good time is hanging around the blogs of conservative professional economists and razzing them about the industry wisdom regarding valuation of credit default swaps. I know, I know....what a party animal. ;o)
