Was Birnbaum’s sending of the accidental e-mail about Hood really an accident?

The indications are therefore that a considerable traffic exists in the belief that the e-mail was not an accident, but rather a sort of dead fish mailed to Hood (“if youse don’t shaddap, youse will sleep wit da fishes”). I think this is unlikely for the following reasons:

Hood is slicing and dicing himself like he’s a new kitchen tool on a TV infomercial. He is sowing the seeds of his own discredit everywhere he goes, like a reverse Johnny Appleseed. I think we can take it as a given that Birnbaum has no particular regard for Hood, so why would she do anything intentionally that might interfere with or distract from Hood’s own self-demolition?
