Israel Discovers A "Small Amount" Of Oil | Main | Update: IP of StopSexualPredators Admin ID'd As Coming From Royal Oak, Michigan

Dem Dirty Trick Watch

Still perhaps too much to hope for, but what if the Miracle Solution is real?

1) Bloggers have identified the fake blog that started publicizing this, StopSexualPredators, as being posted from a Royal Oak, MI, address.

2) Royal Oak, MI, neighbors John Conyers' district. Correction: I wrote it was "part of" John Conyers' district. It's not. It's nearby, but it's Sander Levin's (D) district.

3) CREW picked up the story and ran with it.

4) Melanie Sloan, the head of CREW, worked for John Conyers on the Judiciary Committee.

A "dirty trick" hardly mitigates the disgracefulness of Foley's conduct, or absolves the GOP House leadership from its passivity on the issue.

However, if high-ranking Democrats knew more about this than Republicans did, as is beginning to look like the case, how can they claim that Republicans failed to act on information only they had?

Could get very interesting.

Bonus: Just on the Gibson show-- an email says that Nancy Pelosi is insisting that Republicans testify about what they knew, and when, under oath, but she herself refuses to testify under oath abut what she knew, and when.

Why?

I think the question strongly suggests its answer.

Bonus Fact: Bruce Campbell lives there. How he figures into this, I cannot say.

How Tommy/MikeZ Got A Royal Oak IP Address: In his own words--

What I did was set up two new blogs and a new email address. I attached site meters to each of the blogs to record incoming IPs. I then sent an email containing links to both blogs to SSP along with a claim to SSP that other sites were making outrageous claims about SSP. Neither blog contained anything but nonsense. Of course, the blogs are so obscure that it is likely that any IP that hit both blogs (without any sort of a referrer between the two, of course) would be the IP of the SSP admin.

The IP in question was the second visit on one blog and the fourth visit on the other blog. Both came in with a minute or so of each other. There was no referrer between the two blogs which means it is likely they just opened up links in their email.

Unfortunately, I only found out later that site meter apparently only records the range, not the exact IP (it doesn't pick up my exact IP when I visit the site).

Clever. Sitemeter in its free form blocks out the last two digits of an IP address, but if you pay the $6.95 or so for the cheapest paid version, you get the whole deal.

Maybe try it?

It may be that if Tommy pays for the thing now, the full IP's will be immediately revealed.

I'll shoot ya the seven bucks myself if you want.
