"All Wee Wee'd Up." .com

Perusing through my daily links, I got to TPM's day in 100 seconds including Obama's 'wee wee'd' quote. More specifically:

"There's something about August going into September where everyone in Washington gets all 'wee-weed' up"

These days, you can't hesitate too long after hearing an obscure turn of phrase without thinking '', especially when it falls off the lips of one of the most beloved men in the world. To be honest, Obama's been throwing out a lot recently, but has already been used (free streaming music for college students...).

Before the clip was finished, I was already checking for availability of Taken. But to be sure it was because of Obama, I needed to know when it was taken. From the whois:

Registrar: MONIKER

Registrant [5950]:
Gregg Ostrick
GNO, Inc.
P.O. Box 43353

August 20th at GMT 20:14, which in EDT is 4:14 PM. According to the helpful C-Span ticker, Obama uttered the phrase at 2:53 PM, EDT.

Now, I don't see any use, or any profit in, but you never can tell. What we really ought to look for is when the timing flips. Which Obama intern will start registering Obama phrases he hears in the hallway before he even says them? It's not really that far off...
