Son of Democratic politician indited for being a haxx0r

October 8, 2008

You may have heard that Sarah Palin’s email was hacked into about a month back.  On a scale from one to ten, I’d say the repsonsible party is doomed.

David C. Kernell, 20, was indicted by a federal grand jury in Knoxville, Tenn., for “intentionally accessing without authorization the e-mail account of Alaska governor Sarah Palin,” the Justice Department says.

Kernell’s father is Tennessee State Rep. Mike Kernell.

How doomed could you be if your dad is in Congress?  This doomed.

Kernell, if convicted, faces five years in prison, a $250,000 fine and a three year term of supervised release.


NY Post vs. Joe Biden

October 4, 2008

If you’re going to lie/make stuff up in a (vice-)presidential, you should probably try to be sneaky about it.  If a newspaper makes a comment like this about you:

That’s where Joe Biden, speaking with the pompus self-importance befitting his 36 years in the Senate, told one baffling fib after another.

…that’s when you know you didn’t get away with crap.  It starts out with an admirably snide comment,

Some, of course, were just Biden being Biden. He smeared Dick Cheney as “the most dangerous vice president we’ve had probably in American history.”

To which we must take specific offense: After all, the founder of this newspaper, Alexander Hamilton, was killed in a duel by then-Vice President Aaron Burr. (Certainly Burr was a better shot than Cheney.)

Our friends at RedState would like to remind us that Burr was also involved with a treasonous conspiricy which was supposed to culminate in secession.  The post goes on to list several of Biden’s untruities and finish off with this:

Then there was what might have been the biggest head-scratcher of the night. Said Biden of the Bush administration’s supposed Middle East follies:

“When . . . along with France, we kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon, I said and Barack said, ‘Move NATO forces in there. Fill the vacuum, because if you don’t, Hezbollah will control it.”

Huh?

Assuming that Biden was referring to when, in 2005, American and French pressure helped the Lebanese people kick Syrian troops out of Lebanon, who ever thought NATO occupation of that deeply divided country was a good idea?

Hmm… yeah, Hezbollah is still a big deal in Lebanon.  We never kicked them out, Israel never kicked them out, and France never kicked them out.

The NY Post’s question, though, is apparently Joe Biden.  He wants to be co-leader of the free world, yo.


Sex offender pwn3d by intended victim’s father

September 30, 2008

A one David Meyers broke into a one Robert McNally’s house, looking to rape his daughter.  He didn’t count on getting pwn3d to death:

Police responding to a call from the city’s northwest side about 3:20 a.m. found 64-year-old Robert McNally on the hallway floor with his arm around the neck of 52-year-old David T. Meyers, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police spokesman Sgt. Matthew Mount said Meyers had a heart condition and may have had a heart attack. An autopsy was planned.

I guess the autopsy is to figure out if Meyers was strangled by McNally or if he gave himself a heart attack trying to travel back in time and warn himself that he was about to make a horrible error.  The police won’t say whether or not he brought a flux capacitor with him.

Police said Meyers was naked except for a mask and latex gloves and had entered the home through a window near the girl’s bedroom with rope, condoms and a knife. He was familiar with the home’s layout because it belonged to a relative, police said.

The girl awoke and screamed when she saw the man in her room, police said. The father responded and struggled with the intruder while the girl’s mother phoned 911.

I would like to point out two things here.  1) The mother did the right thing in calling the police.  2) The father is a champion of all that is man, not only because he protected his family, but read that part again and count how many weapons are mentioned.  McNally, unarmed, attacked Meyers, armed with a knife, and came out victorious.  Note also that while Meyers went to the morgue, there’s no mention of McNally’s wounds, so either he wasn’t hurt badly enough to mention or he wasn’t hurt at all.

Also:

Police did not anticipate any charges against McNally.

I should hope not.
