Something Something Rhymes With Politics

While Obama is Twittering All the Way to the White House, McCain is Still in the “Land of the Lost” Cave Mixing Crystals Around

How did John McCain’s people allow him to slip to the NY Times that he is just now learning to use the Internets (and BTW, the Dems thank you). I am learning to get online myself, and I will have that down fairly soon, getting on myself,” McCain told the New York Times in an interview that appeared Sunday. “I don’t expect to be a great communicator, I don’t expect to set up my own blog, but I am becoming computer literate to the point where I can get the information that I need.”

I know the current leader of the free world is a goldfish with ears who thinks his generation’s greatest invention is Goober Grape, but shouldn’t the next perspective leader try and show that he might be more advanced than his flailing pal? Aren’t these presidential types supposed to be ambitious?

So what exactly has McCain been doing to get his info up until now? Is he at the library flipping through Encyclopedia Brittanicas while the rest of his colleagues are fingering their iPhones? Does his staff arrive by horse and buggy each morning and deliver information via telegram?

Economy in toilet. Stop. Oil (the thing that fuels up the Model T) is pricey. Stop.

Srsly. Stop.
