A while back, I wrote about the deliberate muddying of the waters regarding Kimberlin and Rauhauser, and connected it up with what I had judged to be the Obama strategy of trying to get independents, who are leaning toward Romney, so confused and generally pissed off that they stayed home. Lee Stranahan and Mandy Nagy seem to see the same techniques, though their metaphor of diversionary explosions is a lot more colorful . . . and given the Aurora PD's theories on James Holmes' explosives and what they were meant to do, a lot more timely.
Meanwhile, at SunAnt's blog, Enoch unwraps the false economy of Harley Davidson's decision to outsource their Internet geekery to a post-offshore entity. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel revised their story in ways confirming Enoch's suspicions. As ObamaCare beins to come online, you can expect for a lot more bean counters to begin to find offshoring compelling, despite the troubles it can create: troubles which often create inefficiencies that end up costing companies more in time, energy and money than their original arrangements. But then, bean counters must justify their salaries, too, you see.
It's unlikely, though, even in the long run, that such blinkered spreadsheet starers will be able to do Harley Davidson the $400 million in damages that a dude in Maine did to a US submarine, because his meds weren't working out and he was having girl troubles. That's not quite Corzine-level destruction, but unfortunately for him the kid doesn't have Corzine-level connections, either.
Well, there's deliberate noise, and then there's demented static.
