Some domain names not taken

Just for giggles I tried the following at register.com:

Domain Names Available
www.helpthesudan.org(com)(net)
www.iraqihandover.org(com)(net)
www.keryyisanidiot.org(com)(net)
www.kerryisevil.org(com)(net)
[Note: the last two aren't necessarily my opinion but are analagous to domain names directed in such ways towards Pres. Bush]

Domain Names Taken
www.bushisanidiot.com
www.bushisevil.com
www.runagainstbush.com
www.flushbush.com

Here are two interesting searches of domain names:
Search for domain names including "John Kerry"
Search for domain names including "George Bush"
Search for domain names including "Bill Clinton"

The gray boxes are domain names that had been registered at one time but had expired. Granted that Pres. Bush has been around longer than John Kerry, but it is interesting that there are so many anti-Bush websites registered and so few anti-Kerry. Does this mean that John Kerry has done nothing to earn the ire of his political enemies, or do those who disagree with John Kerry's politics decide to invest in Intel stock instead of a domain name?

Comments:
I can relate to that post. Finding the right domain name these days is more challenging and definitely more critical to getting good search engine positioning.

I really enjoy your blog, keep us posted.
