Obama Admin Buys Misspelling of URL, Driving Traffic to WhiteHouse.gov

Obamicon2_2.24.gifLast month we wrote about the Paste Magazine site that allows users to create their own version of Shepard Fairey‘s iconic poster from the 2008 Presidential election.

The URL is obamicon.me.

Well, it turns out the Obama Administration is Web-savvy enough to have bought a misspelling of that URL. A WebNewser tipster tells us Obamaicon.me, now redirects to the WhiteHouse.gov Briefing Room blog.
