Wanker of the Day
It had to happen. A minor Vermont blog asserts via "Justice Department sources... that documents pertaining to "BlierWatch"... have been turned over to the Criminal Investigation Division for possible Telecommunication Act violations by the Federal Communications Commission."
The reporting blog, which has stolen the name of a man dead for 178 years as its own, is irked by anonymous blogging and "long(s) for the days of John Jay and James Madison." Perhaps being dead for so long has dulled the blogger's memory. The blogger can refresh his or her memory by reading a more recent report on the period for which she/he longs.
This nascent blog claims "sources" in the Justice Department that would make Bob Woodward jealous. Maybe the Vermont blogosphere is about to be shocked and awed by this insiders blog's future breaking news. Or maybe not. The long recitation about information that could not be obtained or confirmed wasn't terribly convincing. The line that read "(t)he Vermont AG's office would not confirm our request for information" is as confused as the blogger is with the webservices Blogger and eBlogger or which investigative branch of the Justice Department investigates various purported crimes.
Meanwhile, Blier Watch will continue to a source for indisputable facts, in particular those made publicly available by the hate site Vermont Renewal/Center for American Cultural Renewal and its Director/Director of Communications, Kevin Blier. The re-born blogger, as well as Kevin Blier, would do well to remember what Calvin Coolidge (who our sources confirm actually is dead) once said, "I found out early in life that you don't have to explain something you haven't said."

UPDATE (3/18): Cathy Resmer's kerfuffle report.
Green Mountain Daily's take on the to-do.
What do fellow GOP conservatives say about The Center for American Cultural Renewal? "...(A)n organization with no Washington presence and little clout with social conservatives outside Vermont where it is based."
