SeattleBikeBlog slashdotted
 
The recent hubbub surrounding WA Rep. Ed Orcutt was also carried on SeattleBikeBlog.com (SBB), among many other channels. Well, SBB's was the one that got linked on the SlashDot post:

I was able to load pages at SBB sporadically this morning, sometimes connecting and others timing out. Now even the homepage is all "403 Prohibited." It looks like Dreamhost (SBB's ISP) has locked down the server until the storm passes. It's not fun to have your server knocked down like that, but I hope blog-owner Tom Fucorolo will take it as a badge of honor. Good work, Tom!

Where is that "vote of no confidence" when you need it :)

Yeah, I could see someone winning an election with just the right name:

[_] John Doe
[_] Sally Smith
[X] None Of The Above

That's it: a new constitutional amendment that is an "automatic mass eject button" that voters can use to "get the bums out of Congress". When activated all congressional and senatorial members are banned from ever serving again and are replaced as soon as local elections in their home states occur.

We can impeach a president, why not congress?

I was thinking just putting a dunce cap on them and making them sit in the corner for a time-out for the duration of the session... but okay, I like your suggestion too :)

We'd run out of corners.
