That's a pretty good one.

I'm still giggling.

Two weeks ago I did a post on Frank Alvine who is running for District 10 State Senate against Senator Gene Abdallah in the Primary. And I brought up the fact that the URL (Internet Address) that was being advertised didn't appear to be registered at all.



I made the smart alecky comment that "If I had decided to purchase the website being advertised, all I would need is my credit card, and I'm good to go. THE SITE WOULD BE MINE. That would really stink if it was your opponent purchasing it."

I saw that Alvine's announcement was in the paper in Harrisburg this week, so I went and checked out the old URL just to look at his website.

So, I enter www.alvineforsenate.com, and what did I see?


That's right, someone registered the URL and pointed it here to the South Dakota War College. Which gave me one of the best laughs I've had in a while. Whoever did it, has a pretty good sense of humor. I tried looking it up, and it isn't publicly available through a "whois" search. But whomever it is, it's darned funny.

For the real thing, you can go to http://www.frankalvineforsenate.com. (Too bad the other one was taken.)

No, I meant who registered the www.alvineforsenate.com to point to me.

Hey PP,
A few hits (comments) from the Catholic bashing comments by Looby.
It's easy to see what gets attention and what doesn't these days.
