When I first had a look at the new John McCain website I was excited to see that the campaign had fully embraced the power of the Internet, specifically the blogosphere and social networking. It only took a week to make me take back every positive thought that I first had. Now I’m convinced that the new McCain website is flat out broken and was launched WAY too early.
Apart from the technical problems, there seems to be a serious issue with censorship. In my case it appears as though I’ve been turned down for a McCainSpace blog. I applied for one of the blogs the first day the site went live… I think it was about a week ago. I received the confirmation e-mail and went through all of the steps, and here I am a week later with no word on my blog approval.
If Eric Odom, operator of ConservaBlogs.com can’t get approved, then who can? And if they just haven’t decided yet, then who the hell takes more than a week to approve a blog?
Then there is the technical problems. The screenshot below shows how badly the "donate" ad breaks the site frame. Oh, and now, going back to the site, my account has somehow vanished. Well, it will ask me the security question to try and get a new password, but then it tries to convince me that I’m wrong about where I was born. Go figure.
John McCain’s exciting website seems to have quickly failed the test.
