DNC fundraising site kicks...er, posterior

Democrats are finding that emulating Chuck Norris takes some effort.
The DNC might also want to buy takingnames.org.

Visit www.kickingass.org, and you’ll see that the colorful domain name is owned by the tough-talking Democratic National Committee. But there’s little on the page besides the phrase “The Democratic Party” and a picture of President Obama surrounded by a cheering crowd. A disclaimer explains the lack of content. “We’re doing some work. We’ll be back in a little while,” reads a message in the lower-left corner.

And we thought such kicking was all in a day’s work for political operatives.

Martial arts aside, at least the DNC knows the real way to deliver roundhouses to opponents’ posteriors: the page features a “contribute” button linking to a Democratic fundraising site.
