Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich’s official campaign website — at — is working fine.

But if anyone types “” and hits enter right now, they’re not going to see things that the former House speaker would find very funny.

In the last few minutes when we’ve done that we’ve been directed to:

– “Gingrich presidential campaign implodes,” a Washington Post story from June.

– The 2008 video Newt Gingrich and Nancy Pelosi – We can solve it.

– An Atlantic Wire report from earlier this month headlined “Gingrich’s Campaign Still Looks an Awful Lot Like a Book Tour.”

– A “travel guide to Greece,” which plays off Gingrich’s summer vacation in the Greek Isles.

– Freddie Mac, the quasi-government mortgage agency that Gingrich did some consulting for — and has been catching grief about from his opponents.

There’s talk on Twitter that you might also get directed to Tiffany’s website, but that hasn’t happened to us yet. Stories earlier this year about the big credit account he and his wife have at the jeweler raised eyebrows.

A WhoIs search for the owner of the domain name only tells us it was registered by “Domains by Proxy, Inc.” through We’ll watch for news about who’s behind all this.
