Thanks for the add

Techpresident reports on the The Battle to Control Obama's Myspace, as Barack Obama's campaign team beat up a geek for the Myspace page that bears Obama's name. Yes, these netsavvy political operatives can behave just as grown-up as teenagers on Myspace: it's like totally our profile and he like had no frigging right to it and we totally pwn him now, for sure.

It is interesting to note that profile had just over 160,000 friends when it was in private hands but has only about 12,000 now it is controlled by the campaign team. Evidently, Obama can no longer rely on the votes of teenage emo kids, wannabe rappers, unkown bands and imaginary women who love your profile and want to get to know you.
