Social media win: Emergency Committee for Israel snatches up ChuckHagel.com

No kidding. With Chuck Hagel securing Obama’s nomination for Defense Secretary today, opponents are upping their game. Hagel has been widely criticized for his antagonistic stance on Israel. With so much of the political war being waged on the social media battlefield, Hagel’s camp should have known better than to leave his name up for grabs. But evidently, they didn’t.

Yup. The Emergency Committee for Israel, an organization advocating for strong U.S.-Israel relations, has snatched up the ChuckHagel.com domain. Site visitors expecting to see promotional materials for Hagel are greeted instead by a host of reasons to oppose his nomination.

Twitterers are impressed by ECI’s move and giving Hagel’s team the business for being lazy:

Oh, snap.

      You do realize of course that Israel is a hellhole with socialized medicine and low co-pays for birth control? (The “lead story” that you guys are trolling with today)

    My entire reaction when I saw this…… “BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHHAAAAAA!!!”

    That said, Hagel is a schmo.
