Republicans register Democrat Domain Names

People associated with the Republican National Committee (R.N.C.) is busy registering domain names such as cannotrustclinton.com and clintonisbad.com, having registered at least 25 similar names relating to Hillary Rodham Clinton reports the New York Times.”The day after Barack Obama won the Iowa caucuses, the R.N.C. snapped up at least 20 domains related to his candidacy,” further reports the Times. “Some of them may signal the party’s 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.)”On the Democrat side, the “Party and the campaigns have shown little of the verve and creativity of the R.N.C. The Obama campaign registered desperatehillaryattacks.com in December. The Clinton campaign registered votingpresent.com two days later, an apparent reference to Mr. Obama’s votes as a member of the Illinois legislature. The party has been focused more on the national convention, registering variations of denverdemconvention08.com in February, but so far apparently no domains related to Mr. McCain.”A list of domain names registered by the R.N.C. or registered using servers used by the committee in 2007 and 2008 are available on the New York Times story available at thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/03/06/rnc-snap-up-domain-names
