Say you're an independent-minded Republican, impervious to the Newtening, deeply unsatisfied with Mitt Romney, and unconcerned with oration skills or even fully formed ideas. Rick Perry is still your candidate, goddammit, and he needs your support. Maybe it's even time to donate a few bucks, so you mosey on over to RickPerry.com when — wait, what's that? — ah yes, an Internet prank: The page redirects to Ron Paul's website; Perry's is located at .org. "The Paul campaign does not have anything to do with this and does not appreciate this sort of thing," says Paul's spokesman. "We are working now to resolve the issue." But when that silliness gets corrected ... NewtGingrich.com is for sale.
