The Ad on Ebay


impeachbush.com domain name is for sale.

We have received numerous inquiries and offers over the years for this premium, highly recognizable domain name, but an open and public online auction seemed the most fair and democratic approach to its sale.

On the exact day this auction ends, two full years of George W. Bush’s presidency will still be ahead of us. This domain name has never been developed or associated with any group, website, product, or movement, though its applicability as a focal point for fundraising, awareness raising, or commercial development is self-evident.

The “dot.com” domain name format has long been the gold standard. With no previous web development effort, “impeach bush” apparently generates millions of hits on major search engines:

Google: 1,600,000 hits for “impeach bush”

Yahoo: 3,930,000 hits for “impeach bush”


With overwhelming opposition to Bush's war effort, and Congress's debateable lack of power (not effort) to stop him, a domain name like this is understandably valuable. Particularly when it may be the only recourse left if he continues his wanton destruction.

It's curious that Yahoo received nearly three times as many search queries!

So who will the winning bidder be? A far left wing Democratic grass roots organization, or more interestingly, a right wing conservative willing to pony up the bucks to avert any damaging usage of the name.

We should have an ATS guesstimate of what price the final bid price will be! Given that this auction has received national attention on DrugeReport, it will no doubt draw in enterprising businessmen, Democratic organizations, and the watchful eyes of the White House.

I will make a guess of $125,000, but would not be surprised to see this domain fetch over $500, 000. What's your guess on the final bid price?

The whole thing is pretty stupid. So much money to bash a President with 2 years to go? So every election just be the first to buy impeach(whoever).com for $25 from Yahoo and sell it for 1000 times its cost? Figure every election there are 2-4 candidates, thats $50-$100 initial investment. Thats money in the bank. Theres no way any domain name is worth 25K. Unless you want to link another site to the search criteria "impeach" and "bush." Then the results display your car dealership or porn site or something.

Whatever, this is America and if they can make a butt load of money for doing nothing whatsoever then more power to them.

My bet is that the winning bidder wont pay up, their just joking around.

And if they do pay up, then, well, they have severe issues, buying a domain for that amount of money.

Maybe the buyer is thinking Jeb Bush has a shot a President in the future?

Because George W. Bush has done nothing to be impeached for.

Maybe............

Wouldn't surprise me actually, though I doubt a website would have much say in the run of things.

Bidder27 who is presently the winner has never bid for anything previously, and their very 1st bid is for $25,200.

Does that mean anything?

Agreed.

Guess we'll have to wait a couple of months to see who actually won, and by that I mean left or right.
