The Lieberman blog has turned off comments, although they have thoughtfully archived all the old comments.
Admittedly, the comments over there were seriously raunchy, and most of them weren't particularly favorable towards Lieberman.
But what did the Lieberman campaign expect? I mean, really. A Lieberman blog with comments enabled and absolutely no moderation or registration was just begging every angry jerk in the country with an internet connection to post something obscene about Lieberman.
But they knew that already. They went and sought out trouble. Why? Maybe so they could get this out of it... or maybe they thought it would actually help them in some other way.
Whatever the reason, that's probably the end of the Lieberman blog, at least for now.
One thing that's worth noting is that opinion leaders like Kos, Atrios and Tim Tagaris from the Lamont campaign warned readers to be civil or not to go to the Lieberman blog at all.
No one listened to them.
