The more I think about it, the more I want this advice spread around.
Hi! Are you 16 years old, and interested in politics? GET OFF OF SOCIAL MEDIA RIGHT NOW. http://t.co/upXWTpkb0Q *Don't* be Ethan Krupp.

Ethan Krupp is, of course, “Pajama Boy:” and he’s now in the process of doing just the smallest* bit of damage to Obamacare, liberalism, and various affiliated processes and movements via the revelations of some of the stupider things he said when younger.
Is that fair? …Not particularly, but it’s allowable under liberalism’s own rules, so Krupp’s out of luck. My advice to the young: if you want to do politics, either get off of social media entirely or accept the fact that every stupid thing that you say will be out there and beyond your control to delete later when your IQ goes up. Because it ALWAYS looks worse when you delete entire blogs. Makes people think that you tacitly agree with your accusers.
But ignore me, I’m sure. Why, I’m almost 44. That’s practically senility territory, right there.
*It is ridiculous to suggest that this guy is going to destroy Obamacare. It is just as ridiculous to suggest that he’ll generate no negative PR for his side.
