A number of external-http requests are failing due to HTTPS redirects

There must have been a recent change on wordpress.com that is forcing HTTPS for certain URLs. A number of our external-http tests that use wordpress.com assets are failing, because the initial requests are getting 301ed to https URLs. It appears that swapping out for the canonical https addresses should fix the problem, and keeps the logic of the tests intact.
