Governor of Iowa Tom Vilsack is running for the Democratic Party nomination for president. On Monday night he chose the Daily Show with Jon Stewart to make his first television appearance of the campaign. To close the interview, Vilsack promoted his site:
Vilsack: Shameless plug — TomVilsack08.com, please.
Stewart: Is that one of them internets?
Vilsack: That’s one of those internets, yeah.
Stewart: Go visit him on the series of tubes.
After some self-deprecating comments about “learning this process,” Vilsack holds up a blackberry, just to prove how l33t he is. Of course, until Tom does the Numa Numa dance, he may not “go viral.” And if Snakes on a Plane was any indication, all the online buzz in the world won’t necessarily translate into real-life results.
