Those Tories...

First they set up a lobster sex-talk line, now...this:

Edmonton-based blogger Dave Cournoyer pointed out on his blog Thursday night that the website stephenharper.com is actually a link to a portal for adult personals, replete with images of women clad in black lingerie and stiletto heels. According to whois.org, the site is registered to someone based in Shanghai, China.

Perhaps more politically embarrassing, the site stephenharper.org is dedicated to lampooning the Conservative Prime Minister, prompting readers to add their own captions to headshots of Mr. Harper. Existing captions include “J'dois aller au petit coin” and “That's what she said.”

Some will say this was just a mess-up and they failed to renew the PM's domain name (that's what happens when your net people spend all their time creating pooping puffins...you forget the basics). Personally, I tend to think Patrick Muttart has finally figured out that the pervert vote is all that's keeping Harper away from a majority.

(On a serious note, the site has been quickly changed, so this looks like a good old fashioned case of cyber squatting)

  • Unfortunately, stephenharper.org still exists :-)

  • Before posting this, I'm sure you checked the current status of MichaelIgnatieff.com, MichaelIgnatieff.org, and MichealIgnatieff.net. (A New Jersey Real Estate Broker, a dead site, and a redirection site taking users to the Conservative Party website, respectively.)

    JackLayton.com takes you to the NDP site, while .org and .net are encountering server errors.

    Balance is important!

  • Not to mention Dave Cournoyer's own name is ripe for cyber-squatting. People in glass houses, and all that...

  • and Steffi's Green plan, linked off the LPC main site, goes to a site that sells gel aides for those Spank the Monkey times.

    Bad enough still having links to the Green Plan on the LPC website. Soooooo ready for an election.

    Probably just a web booby-trap laid by Iggy's genius level Consigliere, the infamous Warren Kinsella.

  • I'm the owner of stephenharper.org. I actually have nothing personal against the PM; I re-registered the domain after it expired as a kind of example of what happens when your party's tech guys have no idea what they're doing. Blatant silliness was also a huge factor :]
