GOP beating up on Dems on social media use, study shows

There’s a fascinating report from Headcount, which calls itself a “nonpartisan voter registration organization,” but sure looks a bit more left-leaning than right. Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead is on the Headcount board, for gosh sakes. Can’t get too much more psychedelic than that.

John] McCain.
