…As Obama’s OFA made its debut, no one in his purportedly Internet-savvy campaign had obtained the corresponding .com, .net, .org or .us sites, nor did OFA register other names that are close to its official one, as is the sensible practice. In the case of the .net address, a fellow named Derek Bovard had already registered the .net address by the time Obama’s team took notice.

Bovard has routed his new site to the homepage of the National Rifle Association.

So, whenever anyone goes to www.organizingforaction.net they end up seeing the homepage of the NRA

    I guarantee you that life will not go well from this day forward for Derek.
    He’s not just poked a bear with a stick, he’s fisted it.

    Yep. Audits by the IRS, searches for guns by the ATF, all kinds of hassles and the Obama lovers will cheer on each violation of law while it happens.

    I’d pitch in a few bucks for his defense fund.

    Just ’cause it made me smile.

    As Obama’s OFA

    Which I read: “Obama’s ofay” and thought “Who’s spillin’ the beans?”

    Where’s the bus to the re-education camp parked?

    That just proves how devious, underhanded, and sinister Conservatives are.

    On the other hand, the NRA would be a real good place for “Organizing for Action”.
