Blogger Who Faulted CBS Documents Is Conservative Activist

All those freepers were taking credit for busting the CBS document forgery case and going on about what forensic type masters they were... blah blah blah. Of course at the time I heard of this story, I thought, "what a bunch of a-- lickers".

But I digress. According to the LA Times today, within 4 hours of the CBS broadcast, one person who identified himself as Buckhead over at the kreeps blog broke the story that the reports were "in a proportionally spaced font, probably Palatino or Times New Roman....The use of proportionally spaced fonts did not come into common use for office memos until the introduction of laser printers, word processing software, and personal computers... They were not widespread until the mid to late 90's. Before then, you needed typesetting equipment, and that wasn't used for personal memos to file. Even the Wang systems that were dominant in the mid 80's used monospaced fonts. "

What a geek. A font historian who just happens to be freeper. Who knew? Well it turns out that this fuckhead buckhead guy is really a very conservative, pro bush attorney named McDougal and people are wondering how he had so much information in such a short time. hmmm. Terry McAuliffe suggested that the whole thing sounded like a Rovian plot. The article goes on to say that an IBM selectric typewriter could have made the documents. It also goes on to say that this very important attorney spends hours and hours on the freeper website. Loser.

Oh yes, and by the way, McDougal "helped draft the petition urging the Arkansas Supreme Court to disbar President Clinton after the Monica Lewinsky scandal"
