Governor seeks MySpace friends in Ohio

During his visit to Huron last week, Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher revealed, "Ted Strickland and I both have a site on MySpace, because we are both with it."

Strickland's MySpace site says he is a 66-year-old male who lives in Columbus, Ohio, who is on MySpace because he is "looking for friends." It's worked out pretty well for him -- his site lists 2,027 friends.

Under occupation, Strickland lists, "Governor of the State of Ohio." He has a blog, but it's not updated as often as my blog -- the last entry is the 2007 State of the State speech. We doubt the governor spends much time hanging out online with his MySpace friends, because the site says, "This page is maintained by volunteers, not by Governor Strickland or his staff."

We couldn't find Lee Fisher's MySpace site, so we asked a spokeswoman, who said she thinks the lieutenant governor meant to say he is on Facebook. She said she'll let me know when she has a URL.
