Thanks Jack. Oh, and Mark and Cathy too. 😉
And finally, politicians have discovered YouTube. Isn’t that the way it always goes? Anytime the techno-wizards deliver a new entertainment platform, one obscenely wealthy industry moves in to take advantage of it.
No, not porn. Politics.
It’s starting small, but it will grow. Look among the clips of a cat pulling a man’s pants down and boys falling (literally) off a log and you’ll find political pitches from elected officials.
U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Ga., must be the most creative user. He only has a handful of clips, but one stars Ben Stein in a relatively funny quiz-show bit.
The most prolific political YouTuber is House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. She’s posted 58 videos. OK, her staff has posted 58 videos.
“It’s about reaching people in new and innovative ways,” says Jennifer Crider, a Pelosi spokeswoman.
