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.

    I like how the majority of you all are mature enough to be so naive towards myspace.

    Personally - I mainly use it to promote, and it does a damn good job at that. I typically like to assaume that I have more common sense than even the average of all Joes, and I have even considered getting into politics on a nation wide scale, and have even researched a few things for my local town on this matter.

    I am the MySpace generation. Come on now, how many idiots out there grew up during the same generation as Bush? Probably tons, and perhaps even with equal proportions as to todays.
