    GOP.am Server FAIL. Wonkette WIN!

    Hmmm, according to publicly available information, the website’s physical location is MMMPH… URK… GACK…

  • hoosiermama

    ZOMG that was so scary when I clicked on the linky-bitty url. Halloween was two months ago, can’t the GOP.com get anything right?

  • hoosiermama

    What up? Also.

  • bitchincamaro

    “245 happy GOP.AM URLs and counting.” Wha? This is the product of some seriously delusional maggot-brained closet genius.

  • hoosiermama

    oops, sorry, that’s GOP.am not GOP.com

    WHAT UP!?

  • gurukalehuru

    Republicans make me want to url.

    “GOP.am will be back on line soon!”
    Crashed it. hahaha. Assbags.

  • Joshua Norton

    So you could give, say, “Mistress Eva – Dominatrix Extraordinaire”, or “Wet Suits R Us” websites a GOP.com heading. Did they really think this through? At all?

    Nah. They still think them computin’ machines are mostly on space ships so no one really uses them.

    [re=478448]not bruce wayne[/re]: LOL! Yay for diversity!

  • Cuthbert J Twillie

    Why is the GOP using the country code for Armenia? Does Turkey know about this?

  • memzilla

    Without incurring the wrath of Wonkette’s attorneys, it can be safely said that the .am suffix on the domain name indicates that this website is registered to the country of Armenia:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.am

    WHY DOES THE GOP HATE AMERICA????

  • proudgrampa

    Jebus. The consequences were so obvious. The GOP must have a mole in their IT department who thinks up stuff like this.

    Right on!

  • Darkness

    [re=478451]Cuthbert J Twillie[/re]: I think the .am is excellent branding for the GOP. It speaks of the traditional values of obsolete technology and ideas like the olds had all the way back when we were just kiddies. I think this dovetails nicely with their entire organizational culture.

  • HipHopOpotamus
  • freakishlystrong

    They will be on to this soon. Or not, they’re Republicans.

  • Prommie

    I am an old, and my understanding of the computers and internet tubes is basically on a level where this thing is just a magical typewriter to me.

    But I sense that the GOP website somehow has done something foolish, opened a door through which you technical types could march, and by doing so, simultaneously mock them and screw with their magical typewriters, and for this, I applaud you.

  • mumblyjoe

    Honestly, none of you are thinking about this boldly enough: THIS is how it’s done.

  • ForTheTurnstiles
  • Lascauxcaveman

    [re=478453]memzilla[/re]: I’m pretty sure the GOPers thought that the .am extension was for websites that you check in the morning, y’know, with your coffee and toast.

    Start the morning right, with your GOP.

    or more to the point

  • Darkness

    [re=478469]Prommie[/re]: As someone who has programmed shit on the internet since forever, I can assure you that it IS merely a magical typewriter. The technology is less far an issue than the social systems putting it to use and evolving around the new possibilities that technology opens up. That’s the really sad thing about this for the GOP. What they fail to grasp is not (just) the technology, but people and how they communicate and organize. I mean, maybe it’s a stretch to expect that of a political party who wants to assure us they have a modicum of skill at governance. It would be laugh-your-ass-off-able if people never elected these poser yahoos, but frighteningly enough, they inevitably do.

  • Prommie

    Lude content?

  • Gunner

    Does anyone have access to the Vast Wingnut Email Forwarding Network? If so, I recommend authoring an email “exposing” the world to the GOP’s real values, as shown by their unholy “portal” to all manner of horrors:

    and my own contribution:
    http://gop.am/DcIN

    These are all official GOP websites, which proves that they approve of everything in the sites listed. If someone does manage to send this to the base, make sure to embed a lot of pictures and different font sizes and colors so that it appears authentic.

  • S.Luggo

    “Terms of Use: GOP.AM was created as a free service to make posting long URLs easier. If you use it … to promote lude content, your GOP.AM URL will be disabled.”

    Say What?

  • Darkness

    [re=478519]J. Robert Oppenheiner[/re]: You’re not allowed to frame people playing mediaeval instruments since that . . . oh, that’s lute, nevermind.

  • canadasteve

    This is obviously Ted Stevens getting back at everyone for mocking him about the ‘internet is a series of tubes’ thing.

  • drewonline

    [re=478519]J. Robert Oppenheiner[/re]: You beat me to it – isn’t Wonkette by definition “lude” content. Or is this some sort of Supreme Court test about community standards – by liberal blog standards, Wonkette is pretty tame, ok, maybe not.

  • Gopherit

    [re=478519]J. Robert Oppenheiner[/re]: Yeah, like if it will put you to sleep. now lewd, content….

  • betterDeadThanRed

    [re=478519]J. Robert Oppenheiner[/re]: [re=478525]S.Luggo[/re]: They KNEW this would happen. But with that stern warning of course no one on the Internet would ever use their site for porn URLs. Oh Goodness no!

    I wonder what would happen to their traffic if all of the people like us stopped messing with their site.

  • Gopherit

    NSFW, but I like mine:http://gop.am/P4kp

  • Gopherit
  • mumblyjoe

    [re=478525]S.Luggo[/re]: [re=478519]J. Robert Oppenheiner[/re]: Either GOP.am is run by a bunch of Japanese-armenian people and they meant rude, or they’re obsessively concerned about the possibility of ppl using GOP.am to promote qualudes. Because the War on Drugs, and honestly, because it’s more fun to be rude with it, let’s assume the latter.

    And who is this Political Media Inc. that came up with this? Well, the link on the page doesn’t work (!) but here are the main movers:
    http://politicalmedia.com/management.php

    AND HERE IS YOUR ARMENIAN / DJ CONNECTION….

    Daniel Stepanian-Bennett
    Project Manager

    Originally from Rochester, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit in southeast Michigan, Dan attended Oakland University in his hometown of Rochester. He graduated in the spring of 2007, receiving departmental honors with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing from the School of Business Administration and a minor in Political Science, while also studying Pre-Law and Communications with a focus in American Sign Language.

    During his second year in college he started his own disc jockey company called “DJ ESBY Music & Entertainment,” a self-funded venture where he served as the businesses as sole proprietor. He interned with the Detroit Tigers during the 2005 season; the same year the Major League Baseball All Star Game was played in Detroit.

    After graduation in June 2007, he spent a short time at BBK, Ltd, a turnaround management firm in Southfield Michigan as Marketing Assistant.

    In September 2007, Dan moved to Washington DC as part of the Capital Gateway Program with the Armenian National Committee of America. As a Capital Gateway Fellow, Dan helped advance the agenda of the Armenian-American community through meetings with legislative staffers and Members of Congress. He later found a position at nationally renowned political advertising company Stevens, Reed, Curcio & Potholm serving as Media Associate until June 2008.

    [re=478453]memzilla[/re]: How much would you want to bet that some GOP IT whiz thinks .am stands for .america?

    lol

  • Mahousu

    [re=478453]memzilla[/re]: According to that Wikipedia article, “For religious reasons, Armenian law prohibits its domain names from being used for obscene sites.” I think maybe I’ll report gop.am to AMNIC.
