And YOU thought Obama was "tech-savvy"...

Guess who among US politicians is a "twitter zen-master?" None other than Senator John McCain! Politico sez a new report has named McCain the senator with the highest “Digital I.Q.,” a metric based on use of social media, including frequency of posts and number of followers. McCain has over 650000 "fans" on Facebook, and over 1.7 million followers on Twitter!!! So who has Johnny been following?
via The Phoenix New Times ::: Ironically, many analysts have given partial credit for McCain's downfall in the 2008 presidential election to his failure to embrace social media and reach young voters as effectively as Barack Obama.[...]
"I kind of think she might be too good looking to go to jail." —John McCain on Snooki (who was recently arrested for disorderly conduct) during an interview on a Phoenix radio show. Previously, the Jersey Shore star called the 73-year-old senator "really cute." Tweet Tweet Tweet On!

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
