What’s up with all these outages lately? Fox News freezing on DISH, AT&T having a 12- hour nationwide meltdown (oops, did someone forget to pay the intergalactic bill?), and Instagram and Facebook taking a siesta.

Oh, and let’s not forget the LinkedIn crash – because apparently, even the professional networking site needed a break from our collective chaos.

Or maybe, just maybe, it’s the Democrats flexing their outage muscles, preparing us for a grand spectacle on November 5th. Because what better way to test their election day tactics than making us shrug off internet and cell phone chaos as the new normal when they shut us all down?

It’s like a twisted game of “Guess Who?” – only this time, the culprits might be closer than we think, and they’re not wearing a red hat.
