Being "new media" savvy: not a requirement for a Congressman

I recently received an e-mail from my Congressman, Mike Doyle(D, PA-14); like any good elected representative he updates his constituents on a regular basis. I found this a bit amusing, however(...

"One of these new Facebook pages", huh? Come on Congressman, you don't have to make it that obvious you've never used the site before! And telling the reader to search, using your full title? Nope, Facebook's search isn't as smart as Google, and won't get them any results if they do that.
Before you send the e-mail, it's really not too much to ask that you include a hyperlink to the page!

That's all. I wonder if any other local reps are any better with their interweb communication.
