All very fine and dandy no doubt but is there any genuine evidence that this stuff really helped much apart from in the (not completely insignificant I'll grant you) matter of raising cash? Was the turnout of young people significantly up on previous elections for example? And where's the analysis of the input of 2m Facebook users and the actions being taken (I guess none) as a result of it?

Surely having an engaging candidate, a rubbish opponent, a desperately unpopular incumbent and the highly publicised collapse of the Republicans' favourite "who needs regulation" policy helped a bit...

Obama is a one-off, first-rate, fuck-off bright, straight-up charismatic.

Brown is a duff, useless, clunky, slow-thinking, piss-poor excuse for a human being.

That last post is very poor and not what one expects should be on this blog!

I agree with you, Mark Still News. The foul language is inappropriate. However, I can hardly disagree with the sentiments.
