Can't Wait For The MySpace Generation To Run For Office

from the now-that-ought-to-be-fun dept

Our discussion on the fear mongering article about MySpace could probably be summed up as saying that it's about time we started teaching people common sense. Taking a slightly different view on all of this is David Canton, who points out that all of the non-common sense by folks today, posting all kinds of personal information to the web is going to come back to bite the MySpace generation in a few years when they start running for office. Of course, on the bright side, maybe it will completely weed out a series of potentially common senseless politicians by automatically disqualifying them. At least we can hope.

    "DUH !!!!! Of course they didn't. They didn't have the means. If they DID have the Internet and computers DECADES ago, along with cheap or free Internet access, they damn sure WOULD have been posting it."

    And just imagine how much fun the elections would have been had the last two presidents had a myspace page while in HS and college.

    "Mr. Clinton, it says here that you had a threesome with two english girls while high on marijauna, and then attended an anti-US rally, and later met your girlfriend Hillary for dinner. Do you have any comment?"


    "Mr. Bush, your Blog say that after drinking and snorting cocain for a couple of days with your frat buddies, you slept for three days and missed your required National Guard drill weekend, but that you thought it wasn't a big deal because "Dad would take care of it." Any comment?"
