SO WITH CBS NEWS’ SHARYL ATTKISSON’S COMPUTER HACKED, a reader emails: “Did a politicized bureaucracy spy on the Romney/ GOP campaign and interfere with a Federal election?”

It gets harder and harder to write such suggestions off as absurd.

UPDATE: It would be interesting, wouldn’t it, to pull out some of the Romney campaign’s computers and see if they show the kind of evidence that CBS’s experts found on Attkisson’s computer?

ANOTHER UPDATE: Reader Myk Zagorac writes: “I don’t think you could show any such tampering as I’m guessing they’ve been long since repurposed. But, weren’t iPads and laptops stolen out of a Romney staff member’s car? Why leave a hacking trail if you don’t have to?” I’m sure that was just a coincidence.
