Google slaps ‘reported phishing’ warning on idiotic Republican scam website

wilwheaton:

Did they not think this would end poorly for them?

You have to wonder who it was that approved such a thing and WHAT they thought they would gain from doing something like this? You also have to wonder how many Democrats were fooled and gave money to the NRCC and IF IT WAS WORTH IT for the Republicans to look like total dickheads to just about everyone for perpetrating such a goofy move. No matter what your political affiliation might be, this simply makes them appear incredibly stupid, delusionally incompetent, and there very well could prove to be legal ramifications if this activity would be considered fraudulent in the states where it occurred.

It’s likely that mainstream cable news (except maybe MSNBC) won’t talk about this at all, because, you know, they don’t want to be biased.

I guarantee you it won’t even get a mention on FOX.

After a year of warring with Major League Baseball, Alex Rodriguez effectively ended his battle on Friday, dropping his lawsuits against baseball and the players’ union over his doping suspension.

The legal move means that Rodriguez, the Yankees’ third baseman, has accepted that he will be sidelined for the entire 2014 season plus the postseason — the longest suspension in the sport’s history for the use of performance-enhancing drugs.

Without admitting to the use of banned substances, Rodriguez, 38, quietly submitted papers in federal court in New York seeking to voluntarily dismiss two high-profile lawsuits he has filed in recent months.

In one of the cases, Rodriguez had sued M.L.B. and the players’ union, seeking to throw out an independent arbitrator’s decision that upheld most of his 211-game suspension. In the other case, originally filed in October, Rodriguez named M.L.B. and its commissioner, Bud Selig, as defendants, claiming they engaged in a “witch hunt” as they investigated his use of banned substances.

But Rodriguez’s energy for continuing to pursue his case in the courts began to wane in recent weeks as legal experts predicted dim prospects for his lawsuits and as the public grew increasingly weary of his battle. The arbitrator’s report in his case, which was made public as a result of the lawsuit Rodriguez filed in January, offered an authoritative account of Rodriguez’s alleged doping regimen — serving a public setback to a ballplayer once considered among the best of his generation.

In mid-January, Rodriguez signaled while speaking with reporters in Mexico City that he might be moving toward giving up, as he said that the upcoming season will give him a chance to “rest physically, mentally and to prepare for the future and to start a new chapter of my life,” according to a translation of a video posted to ESPN New York.

As Jay Leno ends his second run as The Tonight Show host, remember that he had a part is getting a better host fired from his dream job. So instead of watching that jerk get a second chance to go away and retire as he should have 2009, just watch Conan O’Brien say goodbye on a loop, cause it will be a hell of a lot more entertaining and heartfelt than whatever NBC is airing tonight.

This.
