Alabama Democrats Attempt to Scrub Maher Event From The Web
If it has ever been on the internet, it will always be on the internet. That is just a fact of life in the digital age. So with that simple truth in mind, it’s probably not a good idea to do something in public that you’re not going to be proud of, because your actions will be out there forever — no matter how hard you try to erase the evidence.
Take the fine folks at the Alabama Democratic Party, for example.

And suddenly the liberal cadre at the Alabama Democratic Party realized what the rest of us have known for quite some time now — Alabamians don’t share their values (or taste in “comedians”).
They started frantically scrubbing their website of any reference to Bill Maher. The url (Alabama Democrats) which had served as the landing page for ticket sales to their “Evening with Bill Maher” began redirecting people back to their homepage. It was as if they had never implored folks to “Come join Alabama Democrats at the Von Braun Center Concert Hall in Huntsville for an Evening with Bill Maher.”
This brilliant plan to shelter themselves from the impending fallout worked perfectly…except for that pesky truism we mentioned earlier about what happens once something’s on the internet.
