Dread Pirate Roberts

OK. So the Progress for America folks have reserved www.judgeroberts.com to help promote his confirmation. The Judicial Confirmation Network has reserved Confirm Judge Roberts.

Why not www.confirmroberts.com? Because that domain was already squatted last November by none other than one Brian Komar of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights.

How - childish. Of course, Wade Henderson gets interviewed by every newspaper in the country looking for opposition to Roberts, but he needs to hijack a perfectly good site, months in advance. I don't suppose a third party can establish prior use on someone else's name, especially one as common as
Roberts, though.

If these people want to be taken seriously as anything other than political bullies and name-callers, they'll have to come up with some ideas that can stand on their own, without having to fly under a false flag to get attention.

UPDATE: I had second thought, hopes that the LCCR had some legitimate reason for wanting confirmroberts, especially as far back as November 17, 2004. Perhaps there was a Judge Roberts they liked, or a special election or local nomination or perhaps a state judge named Roberts.

Nope. They never fail to disappoint. They also took confirmluttig.com

ANOTHER UPDATE: Defeatroberts.com, along with rejectroberts.com and a host of related domains were also reserved yesterday by someone named Marcus Belk, claiming to be a democratic political consultant based in Hoboken. Maybe. Truebluedemocrats.com is the only reference I could find for him, but he is offering the domains for sale, rather than trying to deny access to his opponents.
