The YouTube Election

I could say that I'm trying to make a point about the power of social media, but it's really about how scary our neighbours to the south are. John Stewart can make fun of 'the big, crazy brother that lives in the attic', but at least we're not overtly, proudly racist. When a great military leader and statesman labels Obama as a 'transformational leader', people should take notice. The point of all this? Politics aside, the immediacy of news means politicians and their spin doctors, like marketers, are no longer in charge on information, we are.
