Don’t mention you-know-who!

The past 2 days, the fundraising campaign of a certain Texas Congressman has made it big in the news.

I was amused to see that digg allegedly blocked stories relating to the event. For a brief while, anyhow. My debatewire item made it through, and has been drawing a bit of traffic today.

I’m always intrigued when technical stuff gets caught up in social issues. Should the stories be considered spam? Are they the efforts of online supporters and zealots? Does it make a difference if they’re submitted by supporters or his paid campaign staff? And does it matter that they’re getting voted up and people seem interested in reading them?

It makes my head spin. Only in our nutty, postmodern culture.
