Rand Paul Jockeys for Facebook Domination
Posted at 5:31 p.m. on June 26, 2013
Whether he’s running for president in 2016 is immaterial: Sen. Rand Paul really just wants EVERYONE to like him.
While thanking supporter Miles Wobbleton for contributing the 100,000th “thumbs up” on his official Senate Facebook page, the Kentucky Republican indicated that he wants to see his online flock grow exponentially.
“We’re excited to be at 100,000, but really we’d like to see it at a million,” Paul proposed, tossing out that familiar Washington enticement — the proverbial “free lunch” — to those still on the fence about registering their virtual approval.
Paul has already crossed that self-imposed high bar on a mirror Facebook page.
And his personal account is so popular, prospective pals are now universally rebuffed.
“This person has reached the friend request limit and can’t accept any more,” Facebook warns.
