Who needs polling? Facebook is where it’s at.

Facebook was lit up tonight with brilliant status updates with real-time responses to the Biden-Palin debate seen on all of our televisions. The people made me proud – on a Thursday evening, all had the debate on. All were watching. And, best of all, all were passionate in their responses to the event taking place.

Our generation has taken a lot of flack for not being invested, not caring about greater issues (here’s where you can start humming John Mayer’s “Waiting on the World to Change”). Yet it’s clear that people are just waiting for their opportunity to make their voices heard on November 4.

I’m feeling proud tonight. Thank you, friends. And thank you, Internets.
