Look out Google! There’s a new email-and-search site in town, and this one isn’t run by hippy liberals! Last year Michael Reagan launched, in an attempt to counteract what he sees as a liberal bias in email. “Every time you use your email from companies like Google,” he wrote, “you are helping liberals.” So for a mere $39.95 a year, he’s offering addresses instead. In honor of the Gipper’s birthday, Fast Company decided to check in and see how that was working out.

The answer—brace yourself Google—is that Reagan’s got all of 4,000 people. “If I'm on Sean Hannity, and I say I have an email service, I can sell 1,000. Wham!” he boasts. And a sweet domain name isn’t all his site offers. “We got the calendar. We got everything going for it. Our search engine—I think we have the only search engine that gives you both the left and the right.” Although that last feature might just be broken. (See image.)
