So Iâ€™m heading to Los Angeles for a blogging conference next weekend, and figured Iâ€™d log on to the Pac-12 website to see if there werenâ€™t any football games I could ditch the afternoon presentations for on Saturday.
Like many Pac-12 fans, I typed Pac12.com into my browser and was sickened to find the website had been converted into a Tea Party fan page, with dozens of links to content supporting TeaParty.org, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and Sarah Palin. You heard right, they went from Pac to Sarah freakinâ€™ Palin.
At first I was shocked, then I recalled a story we broke in February about the Pac-12 Conference (previously the Pac-10) and the www.Pac12.com domain owner, Utahâ€™s Austin Linford, (we didnâ€™t name the owner previously, but after he sold out to the tea party, who cares now!) butting heads over the domain.
