I read today that Hugo Chavez now has a Twitter account. Apparently, he’s joined President Obama and Fidel Castro (who I didn’t even realize was still alive) in this nonsense. In theory, this makes them all "more accessible" to hoi polloi who are obsessed with this kind of bullshit.
So, is social networking the new “Fireside Chat”? Or is political discourse officially now on the same level as “BoobQuake”?
