Our Man in The Economist


Tags Media and CulturePolitical Theory


He only got four letters, (P-a-u-l), but my favorite candidate for president was mentioned in this article in the Economist (NO subscription required for this article) about the effect of the Internet on presidential campaigns.

The name appears in the chart showing prominence on the Internet on YouTube and MySpace. Most of the candidates are represented only on one or the other, and my man appears in the section for MySpace, where he is the leading Republican candidate, no less! His numbers on MySpace are below those of three Republican candidates who don't need to be named over on YouTube, but he's there.

I expect a lot of people will wonder who "Paul" is, and what his last name is. His last name, of course, is freedom.
