FYI, it's an AppEngine app, not a Web Toolkit app.

moderator.whitehouse.gov also doesn't use the usual CNAME pointing at ghs.google.com; it points at a special name which Google must have setup for them: wh-moderator.google.com.

Michael, why can't an App Engine app also be a Web Toolkit App? Google Moderator itself is hosted on Appspot indeed, but looking at the source code you will find a great number of references to "GWT", which I understand to be "Google Web Toolkit". But correct me if I'm wrong, please.

Just as a follow-up, from Google:

"Google Moderator, built with App Engine and Google Web Toolkit"
"Since the front-end of Moderator was written using GWT" [Google Web Toolkit]
