Sen. Mark Pryor is aware of all internet traditions. Well, except for one. That being the one where you check a URL before putting it on a sign and having a press conference with it. Because hilarity can, and in this case did, ensue.

In the above pic from Twitter, you can make out the URL TheRealTomCottonRecord.com. As you can see, the domain links directly to the website of Pryor’s opponent, Rep. Tom Cotton.

Pryor’s media advisory for the event read:

Today, Sen. Mark Pryor will be joined by Arkansas seniors to voice concerns over Rep. Tom Cotton’s support in Washington for a reckless plan to upend Medicare by raising the eligibility age to 70, turning the program into a voucher system and forcing seniors to pay more out of pocket. Standing alongside Medicare beneficiaries, Pryor will outline his plan for protecting Arkansas seniors from Congressman Cotton’s irresponsible Medicare agenda.

Obviously they intended the domain to lead to an attack site painting Cotton as an enemy of seniors. But thanks to an apparent senior moment, it ended up being a pitch for Cotton for Senate.

It seems that Pryor forgot the number one rule of working online: The internet is not a truck. It’s a series of tubes!! So next time, maybe check where those tubes lead.

Or, you know, don’t. Seniors will be better off voting for Tom Cotton anyway.

    Tom Cotton didn’t join with the AARP and rob Medicare to support Obama care, Mark Pryor! You did.

  • DarkKnight2016

    I think even he knows his career is dead come November.

    Wooopsie daisy.

    He should’ve just used a placard of a mock ballot with a check mark by Cotton’s name. Perhaps he’ll do that next time.

    Laugh all you want.

    The pneumatic internet has been running virus-free since we built it.

      Best comment all week.

        Heh. Bandwidth is a bit of a problem, though.

  • ApplePie101

    Er…headline? You are messing with my mind.

  • badbadlibs

    The left are liars extraordinaire. The conman’s vicious law stripped medicare of 900 million dollars, but it’s men like Rep. Cotton who are accused of doing something nefarious.

  • JeffWRidge

    This goof should give Pryor’s supporters pause. If Pryor and his staff are so incompetent that they can’t even check a URL link before displaying it prominently, how likely is it that they can do the peoples’ business any better?

    • lawngren

      They’re clearly qualified to run obamacare.

      • JeffWRidge

        Yep. These are the people who think that they’re our intellectual superiors. I don’t think I’d let them run a marathon, much less the government, or people’s healthcare insurance.

        • lawngren

          Actually, I’d like to see them try to run a marathon – if you meant physically running the course, that would be entertaining. If you meant organizing the marathon, that would be educational (for Obama fans) AND entertaining!

          • JeffWRidge

            Actually I was just making a bad pun on the word run. Considering the way he throws, I can’t imagine Obama running at all. His arms would be flailing around like he was being attacked by bees, as he kept hitting himself in the chin with his knees.

            • lawngren

              Your last sentence rhymes! Keep going, you may be declared Poet laureate of the Vanishing Conservative Americans! LOL!

        Birds of a feather flock together.

      What me worry?
      Yes I am.

  • lawngren

    I love it when stupid results in good news.

  • c4pfan

    Wow!

  • kimber1911

    Good Job dink !

  • Laurel

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
    Breathe…just breathe!

  • Teressa A Jackson

    Reveals intelligence or work ethic?

  • Poptoy1949

    I pray this is a good sign for Cotton in November,

    • timeout31

      I live in Arkansas. Plan to vote for Cotton.

      • Poptoy1949

        You Sir are indeed a Patriot. Very happy to hear great news.

  • spin43

    Pryor is a liar, but if 1 in 4 Americans don’t realize the earth travels around the sun, then the liar has a good chance of winning.

    • Dr. Strangelove

      The earth travels around the sun? OMG…

    • NPC

      Prior is a liar, makes for a great jingle.

  • Boston You

    While democratic processes attach value to each individual, collectivism reduces each of us to a vessel for the will of pernicious quacks and their utopian delusions.
