Mark Udall spokesman and staffer Absurdicus must have taken offense at the essay aimed at him. He left a comment:
You can't handle the truth.
Pithy, eh? The problem is that it was signed "truthteller" and a Colorado Pols URL was left. Truthteller was a Republican commenter on Colorado Pols for two months in 2006.
How did we figure out who it really was? It turns out that Absurdicus has left us two love notes with his own URL from the same IP. We don't publish love notes from anon authors.
Mark Udall is a liar. His spokesmen, paid and unpaid, are liars. Why wouldn't we expect that this spokesman would be a liar? We were surprised, though, that a Mark Udall spokesman and staffer would stoop to pure impersonation.
No, Maybe we weren't.
*We have no proof that this guy is a Udall campaign staffer, but he is acting like a staffer when he hides his identity behind multiple pseudonymns. That we can prove. Henceforth we will be using the term "spokesman and staffer" when we describe his stunts.
Added: Our name switcher points out in another comment that we misread his URL. It is Colorado Confidential. Therefore, he says, that makes us a liar. Anyone who uses the screen name "truthteller" on one site and spits out the kinds of lies as "Absurdicus" on another site that this guy does is in need of dual personality psycoanalysis.
We note that he did not deny being a Mark Udall staffer.
See why blogging is so much fun.
