RNC Snaps Up Domain Names
Cannotrustclinton.com? clintonisbad.com? At least 25 domain names related to Hillary Rodham Clinton have links to the Republican National Committee: the names were either registered by the R.N.C. last year or showed up on servers the committee uses. Half a dozen seemed to guess at Mrs. Clintons eventual running mate, like clintonomalley.com, referring to Gov. Martin OMalley of Maryland.

The day after Barack Obama won the Iowa caucuses, the R.N.C. snapped up at least 20 domains related to his candidacy. Some of them may signal the partys future strategy: baracknotready.com and norealexperience.com. The party has also begun preemptively registering domains that could be used to attack John McCain, like mccainamigos.com, voteagainstmccain.com, flipflopmccain.com and hatemccain.com (ihatemccain.com was taken.)

And just think: Some of these domain names are regular catch phrases in the DU Mud-Wrasslin' Pit. Funny how you'll have that, in'it?

I am sure it's all just some cosmic coincidence, music of the spheres and all that.
