It looks like organising Facebook groups as a method of political communication is all the rage. In the United States, where some signs have emerged that Senator Evan Bayh might be chosen as Barack Obama’s VP nominee, this group is trying to get itself to 100,000 members in 24 hours. Good luck with that.
Meanwhile, one of the poor unfortunates who has been consigned to reporting on Brendan’s uneventful trip around the world asked this ripper:
Is it upsetting for example you know there’s now a Facebook page trying to recruit Peter Costello to the leadership? Is that sort of thing personally insulting?
I would imagine it’s not as upsetting or insulting as knowing that many of the people who work closely with him have been trying to do the same thing.
