Low blow

As if I needed more reasons not to like her, Hillary Clinton’s campaign appears to have bought the domain name edwards08-dot-com and pointed it to hillaryclinton-dot-com. Actually, I’m not sure who registered it.

I heard about this story from a blogger I don’t know, and I looked up the domain and the WHOIS information is inconclusive. It’s possible that a “rogue” activist did this and not her campaign. The original registration date is 2/19/04. Anyone care to do additional detective work? And can someone write a press release because this is the kind of garbage that needs to be reported on.

Hello? Paging the MSM. Come in, please…

Just because it’s legal doesn’t make it ethical (as Clinton’s husband well knows). Doesn’t she have a better way to get her message out than by deceiving voters?

  2. As of this reading, if you go to his domain, you could take over his access point quite easily…

    Not that I would advocate such slimy behavior towards such a slimy person.

    At the moment, it goes to huffington post.

    What a schmuck.

  3. To clarify, I mean that edwards08.com goes to huffington post. As for his domain, check the email addy above.

  4. Wow, I tried the URL earlier and it was still pointing to Hillary. It’s changed (or the change has propagated) in the past 2 hours!

    Upon your advice, I hit wncpc.com (from the registerer’s e-mail address) and it’s a router admin interface. Nice!

    Somebody is not as sophisticated about the Internets as we might have thought… 😉 Do you think the redirect was intentional or did someone do it for him?

    Good sleuthing, Thimscool.

  5. Yep. That SNL skit is right. Hillary was all for the war in Iraq. Now that the war is unpopular and won’t help her win the presidency she’s against it. If this really isn’t the case and she made an honest mistake voting for the war, then her world view is fundamentally against real world peace. Any way you cut it she a war hawk.
