Political Candidates’ Natural Predator: The Camera

Besides shooting off his or her mouth, it looks like the easiest way for a political candidate to get in deep macaca is to have “inappropriate” photos posted online. The Boston Herald has an example, though this one seems pretty ridiculous to me.

But, digital photos and digital video are easy to shoot and easy to post, and politicians are going to have to live with the fact that images they can’t control are going to end up online. At the rate things are going, pretty soon no human being with an actual life is going to be able to run for office.
