McCain also knows how to:
- Pilot a plane
- Rescue guys from a burning aircraft carrier
- Endure five and a half years as a POW
- Write books about subjects other than himself
There are lots of things I loathe about John McCain.
However, the idea, put forward in Obama’s latest ad, that McCain’s not qualified to be President because he can’t use a computer will come back to haunt Obama’s team.
It’s effete and elitist. Didn’t work for Gore and Kerry (or Stevenson for that matter).
(And email ain’t all that, anyway, dudes. Email never killed a single enemy of America.)
Remember that great line in Annie Hall, when Annie says, “I sometimes wonder how I’d stand up to torture” and Woody Allen replies, “They’d take away your Bloomingdale’s charge cards and you’d tell them everything.”
Yeah, there’s lots of stuff McCain can’t do, like, oh, I dunno, raise his arms. To surrender. Even if he wanted to. Which he never will.
PS: Judge Judy admits she doesn’t know how to use a computer. The guy who’s about to lose his case in her courtroom, on the other hand, knows how to use one very well. Which of them is smarter?
Now, if we can just get her to hear our case...
“Basically, according to JJ, we just have to understand that the internet is a place where people will be mean assholes, and they can pretty much say whatever they want, so long as they believe what they are saying is true.”
PSS: I’m old enough to know disco balls were “out” in 1982.

And senior citizens are known for high turnout, aren’t they, Barry?
