I still hate the phrase Web 2.0. I think we will look back 10 years from now a say, “Oh, that wasn’t 2.0 that was Web 1.5…” I digress. Social networking sites are starting to rear their ugly head when it comes to crippling political candidates. The digital dirt of Gen Y is growing like a landfill in New Jersey, and it is totally going screw many, many other politicians in the future.
Take Ray Lam, gay activist, New Democratic Party Candidate in British Columbia’s legislative election. He has withdrawn from the race because of the below photo that was discovered on Facebook.
Everybody know that gay guys, are boob guys. So, in my opinion, he had no reason to step out of the race. He was just having a little fun. Rumor has it that the party is now looking for a non-gay (perhaps anti-gay) penis toucher to put forth as next their nominee.
