Republicans to ask WhoCaresAboutGlobalWarming.com?
Monday, February 22nd, 2010
Domain names registered for attack on global warming.
Looks like the Republicans — perhaps the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) — are getting ready to ask the question “Who Cares About Global Warming?”
WhoCaresAboutGlobalWarming.com, .net, and .org were all registered last Friday to Smartech Corp, which happens to be the favored web hosting company for NRCC.
Last month the NRCC used Smartech Corp to register the names of many of its Democratic foes, followed by the word “Facts”. (e.g. ZackSpaceFacts.com). So far those domain names resolve to pages that state “NRCC Microsite. This site is down for maintenance. Please check back again soon.”
Smartech was the official hosting provider of the 2008 National Republican Convention, and has hosted such gems as HillarySpendometer.com, HopelessHillary.com, and BarackNotReady.com. Smartechâ€™s customers took proactive measures to capture potential Democrat campaign domains for previous elections, such as ClintonKerrey.com.
(To show I’m not biased here, if anyone knows where the Dems prefer to host their domains, let me know.)
