Cnet has the down-low on seventeen of the most crappily designed campaign sites worth clicking and laughing at. For everyone who’s ever thought that Libertarians are the fringe lunatics of politics, this is a must read to see some of the major party nutjobs running (or major party nutjob incumbents, yikes!). [via ]
My favorite has to be incumbent Democrat Stephen Lynch, who represents a district in Massachusetts. Too bad Lynch can’t even be bothered to have a website not under construction in the last few weeks before an election, I’m sure his constituents feel mighty represented knowing he won’t pony up a few bucks for even a crappy website. Good thing there’s people working to kick his lazy ass out of office.
Oh, and the lone Libertarian — Michael Idrogo running for U.S. Congress from Nevada — was picked on because of a bunch of extraneous meta tags (e.g. mp3, credit card, astrology, music download, britney spears, etc.) designed to fool search engines. I’m sure you’re thinking: WTF? META tags! I guess they felt bad about making fun of the ear-crunching MIDI music, the massive scrolling, the 1990s web clip art or the broken images. So yeah… META tags.
