Remember how the Obama campaign tried to paint John McCain as out of touch with technology? Or when the Democrats kept saying the Republican were the party of no ideas?
Remember this campaign video?
Oh, those were the good old days.
The Hill reports House Democrats are now launching a new media campaign similar to one Republicans held earlier this year so that Democrats can catch up to the GOP’s social media presence (it’s two to one in Republican lawmakers’ favor on Twitter, the co-founder of Tweetcongress.org told Bloomberg News in April). The Hill piece quotes Majority Leader Steny Hoyer’s spokeswoman as saying, "The Republicans had a good idea when they had their contest."
Carve it in stone — it took Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube to get the Democrats to admit what all the GOP’s proposed health care solutions in the world couldn’t: Republicans actually have good ideas.
And on a John McCain sidenote, he has the most followers of any lawmaker on Twitter – something that made me chuckle when I read a CNN story of Michelle Obama’s tentative first tweet last month at the White House Correspondence Dinner.
So it looks like, for now, the only ones who are out of touch with reality are the ones casting stones.
