if you were rudy guiliani, which of these would you bring up with your daughter first?

guiliani's daughter
(rudy guiliani's daughter's facebook profile. slate story here.)

1. Having your 17-year-old daughter join a group on Facebook dedicated to electing someone besides you to be President of the United States?

2. Having your 17-year-old daughter select both "Random play" and "Whatever I can get" for the "Looking for:" question on her public Facebook profile?

Not from this per se, but I just cannot imagine social conservatives working up loads of enthusiasm for stepping in a voting booth for Guiliani. And wasn't it the Evangelical turnout machine that was supposed to be a main cause of losing the last two elections? So, the Democrats should have a good matchup against Guiliani, unless, well, they nominate somebody who social conservatives viscerally hate. But, surely Democrats won't do that?

(Apparently parenthood is today's theme on JFW.)

How's your own Facebook entry, Jeremy? (oops -- sorry Anons if this query gets us all swept away again)

What does that mean ... looking for random play, anyway? Are the kids swapping records these days cuz that's what it sounds like to me.

As I posted, I suspended my Facebook account because it was plainly too much of a timesuck. Maybe sometime I will renew it. I did not display any answer to "Looking for:" in my profile; you have to specifically select an option to have it appear.

Didn't I hear that the new Republican strategy is to sort of ignore the Evangelical "machine," because it wasn't a machine so much anymore? I thought I did, but who knows.

If I were Guiliani, I would start by apologizing to my kids.

jeremy said...

Ang: I will be curious how this plays out.

Dilettante: Agreed.

yes, because that worked so well for Alec Baldwin.

Oh, right. IOKIYAR.
