Both Hot Air and Michelle Malkin sites were down from the wee hours of the morning until just a little while ago.  This was human error and corrected as quickly as possible, and both sites are now humming at max efficiency.  We got a lot of suggestions about what may have caused the problem, but I can tell you that we weren’t hacked — and Amazon didn’t throw our sites down the Kindle hole, either, a joke which a few people sent me on Twitter.

We’re sorry for the inconvenience.  We’ll wear the Cone of Shame for it, and we pro — squirrel!
