AtomicMonkey.wordpress.com, the satirical site whose anonymous operators admit to working at Honolulu Hale and claim to know Hannemann operative Keith Rollman but deny being “a Mufi site”, has apparently gone dark.
To commemorate the sad departure of our favorite radioactive simian, we at Hawai`i Free Press have recovered two of their more recent pieces and out of the goodness of our hearts, have endeavored to make them available to the reading public.
Here are three related Hawai`i Free Press articles with background on AtomicMonkey:

Abercrombie Website Claim’s He knows Everything about Everything
June 1, 2010
Neil Abercrombie’s official campaign website has responded to valid criticism about his lack of executve experience with a startling display of hubris. Abercrombie poo poo’s the need for “executive experience” and relies instead on his expansive personal knowledge, which the site goes on to describe as basically everything about everything.
It's hard to argue with someone who knows everything.
While the job of governor of Hawaii is basically that of being a CEO for a multi-billion dollar operation and managing thousands of employees; Abercrombie has personally managed only a small Congressional staff of about 12 people. In fact, it can be argued, that he didn’t do it very well. One Abercrombie staffer, Laura I. Flores, plead guilty to embezzling taxpayer’s funds while working under Neil and was actually sent to prison.
In all fairness to the candidate, this outrageous and clearly defensive claim of superior knowledge may be authored by the giant brain at Abercrombie headquarters that controls the campaign's strategy and message development. It can no longer be considered under the exclusive control of retired Congressman Abercrombie.

Abercrombie Website Makes Immodest Claims About His Superior Intellect

We’re not buying that a PhD in Sociology from the University of Hawaii makes you a lock for the Nobel Prize. But, that didn’t stop the Abercrombie Campaign from posting this wad of self-serving twaddle online. “Neil has extreme brainpower having achieved the highest levels of formal education.” (Yeah, he’s much smarter than Hannemann, who only graduated from Harvard cum laude and went on to be a Fulbright Scholar.)
What is “extreme brainpower” anyway? Well, Atomic Monkey would like to present the pluses and minuses of this alleged “extreme brainpower,” AND the downside of crowing about it around us.
For those of you with no sense of humor, or a weak grasp of the concept of satire, this is a PARODY. Ben Cayetano did not actually have Abercrombie's brain removed...he's messing with it while in place.
