  •  Record time, it's a little different than you say (none)
    There are 2 freepers who posted.

    MacDougald buckhead wrote his blurb about typewriters and monospaced fonts around 9:00 PDT, or approximately midnight EDT – so it was 3 hours later, not minutes later. (Check his free republic post.)

    Another guy, Paul Boley, with the handle TankerKC, posted shortly after 8:00 EDT (5:19 PDT) saying some signature blocks on the memos he saw on TV were justified wrong, right-of-center vs left-justified or something like that [compared to how they would have been (left-)justified in the 1970s]. Boley is a military guy from Alabama.

    Boley did not deconstruct fonts and typefaces like Buckhead a few hours later.  You can google about Boley.

    I do think Harry and Liz MacDougald were primed for this ahead, but Buckhead did not post within minutes.  You should correct your timeline.  People say this all the time, and that timing of it does not seem to be quite right.

    •  Buckhead's first post WAS 18 minutes after (none)
      But it was just "there's something funny here".  That's all.  You're correct that then the key Buckhead post 3 hours later about the fonts was made.  So there was 2 Buck head posts, a short one 18 minutes after and the fonts post 3 hours later.

      You're also correct about the other blogger thanks for bringing that up.

      Thanks for helping us get that clear.

      Was MacDougald tipped? Since he helped Stone in the Miami 2000 Stolen Election, and was the guy that got Clinton disbarred, if Stone did this he probably was tipped.  He's one of their fringe hatchet men.  

      But the forgeries were so bad--and from a photcopy don't forget, that no expert would accept--Mr. MacDougald could have easily figure this out as well.

      •  Buckhead's first post WAS NOT 18 minutes after (none)
        It was another poster...and it was 19 minutes.  What other "facts" did you get wrong in your story?

        Geez, think man.  Joan Reports tries to correct you above--she even provided a link.  Pull your head out of the sand.
