(Do)J Gall Petty

You might remember that Talking Points Memo broke the story that eventually came to be known as the US Attorneys firing scandal.

Yes, yes. Brush away the cobwebs. I know there have been so many other jaw-droppers since that it's hard to keep them all in mind.

But elephants never forget, right?

In what has to be seen as the most pathetic act of revenge ever, the Department of Justice has removed TPM from its email distribution list for its press releases and refuses to add them back, "explaining:"

As you may realize we have a lot of requests to be put on our media lists and we simply are not able to put everyone on the list.
Of course, there's always the chance that this isn't revenge. It could well be incompetence. Email is hard!

There's only so many copies of an internet that can be sent across the internet without clogging up the tubes. Duh.

Great link, Adam. I'd forgotten about "local to local connections across the country."

But other than that, I'll never forget.
