MySpace the land of fertile political ground

If you’re running for president there are several things you have to have in your campaign:

  • A communications director to help craft your message to the American people
  • Tons of volunteers to help run the campaign
  • A myspace page

A myspace page? Yes. Candidates vying for their party’s nomination have a myspace page and Sen. Sam Brownback isn’t any different.

A voter can learn a lot about Brownback from his page such as he’s a married, Virgo, Catholic with more than 6,000 friends on the social networking website. Voters will also be able to view a video of Brownback speaking on what he stands for and what the country needs in their next president. And if voters are confused at all by the video, 15 clickable icons will tell his stance on a variety of issues including marriage, the Iraq war, culture and values and education.

And yes there’s a blog and a list of interests like his favorite movie (Amazing Grace) and books (Lord of the Rings and the Bible).
