Heading Off Any Trouble

This is posted over at Roger Ailes:

Today, some jackass sent an insulting e-mail to Oliver Willis which was designed to look like it came from me. I cleared things up with Oliver, who was very gracious. Around the same time today, I received an e-mail which was designed to look like it came from someone other than the real sender, which was sent through a re-mailer.

If anyone gets an e-mail like this which supposedly came from me, please let me know. I can assure anyone who recieved something like this that it did not come from me.

In case something’s up – anyone who has received any e-mails from me that might be offensive, check with me and make sure it’s from me.

Continuing on this point – Anyone that has received any e-mails from me that make me look stupid, it wasn’t me. If I should have put the addresses in the BCC and instead put them in the CC in that e-mail Monday – it wasn’t me. If I accidentally sent everyone 10 copies of the Robert Reich Commonweal Institute endorsement – it wasn’t me. Richard, if you got an e-mail from me that said, “Blow me” – it wasn’t me. If the e-mail in any way indicates that I might owe you money – it wasn’t me. If it had any misspellings or typos – it wasn’t me. If I turned down a free dinner invitation – it CERTAINLY wasn’t me.

If you believe it was me, then the terrorists win. It was Bill Clinton that did it.
