When I last posted about techPresident the comments on presidential cadidates having MySpace pages were mostly negative. Well it seems that some bright soul in the McCain camp decided to use (without crediting) a template created by Newsvine. On top of that they pulled images without permission eating up bandwidth which called for geeky revenge.

For those of you who despise FakeSpace pages of famous people who have college interns maintaining them, you’ll get a kick out of this. Who knew he liked lesbians?

Numerous people have written me over the last few weeks to tell me that McCain has been using my code, but up until I realized he was pulling images from my server, I didn’t really care. A lot of celebrities including Ryan “Van Wilder” Reynolds and the beautiful Nelly Furtado use my code and I’m totally cool with it.

But then I read the article in today’s Newsweek about how politicians are all setting up MySpace pages in order to “connect” with younger audiences. McCain’s MySpace page is listed, as are the pages from several other candidates. I think the idea of politicians setting up MySpace pages and pretending to actually use them is a bit disingenuous, so I figured it was time to play a little prank on Johnny Mac.

This kind of stuff is great no matter who you are going to vote for.
