    Too funny:


    "As of this morning, two provocative web addresses — Socialists.com and Communists.com — redirect to the Barack Obama campaign website. Type “Socialists.com” into your browser and you’ll swiftly be greeted with an invitation to “like” Obamacare. (Yes, that is the current landing page for Obama’s campaign site — an invitation to express support for Obamacare!)"
    "The president has openly stated his approval of wealth redistribution and has also displayed a marked tendency toward central planning, particularly in the area of energy policy. Why he should balk at being called either a “socialist” or a “communist” puzzles me. Why not attempt to defend his ideas instead of hiding behind conservative rhetoric as he pushes a progressive agenda? "
    Clever: The URLs “Socialists.com” and “Communists.com” redirect to Obama campaign website « Hot Air

    I just looked and neither one of those redirect to anything. They are just parked domains with some ads.

    And what if it did redirect. Do you think he has control over what websites point to his?

    It redirected me straight to the Obama campaign site. Let me try again...I'm sure they scrambled to fix it.

    Lying? I couldn't care less if it redirected or not. It's just not redirecting in my browser, however I checked again in a different browser and see it now.

    Still not sure why this is important though.

    Who said it was *important*? I thought it was funny...

    which is why I said it was funny in the first line of the OP.
