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

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.
