Wired News: Heavy Betting on Election Domains

Wired News: Heavy Betting on Election Domains is a cool business to be in, depending on what side you are on. The premise is that the Bush campaign was lazy and let a very searchable term slip by. Now an anti-Bush support owns it. The site is a parody of what an election site may be like. Whether I'm pro-Bush or pro-Kerry is quite irrelevant. It is wrong to portray the site as legitimate. It adds to the problem facing campaigns everywhere at every level. It is one thing to disagree with politics and policy. It is quite another to misquote and misprint views and promises. Especially when the person is the leader of the country. Regardless of what is thought of the man, respect the office.
