I have to admit that I am impressed that a self branded “computer illiterate” that relies on his wife to do anything on the computer, including the checking of the email, was able to help to create the miracle the we commonly refer to as the BlackBerry.
I actually created the cell phone.
I am Canadian and don’t have a dog in this hunt, but, this is the dumbest thing I’ve heard since Al Gore invented the internet, which, by the way, happens to be a series of pipes and tubes.
You silly American’s… How is it even close?
That’s “Americans”, eh? Otherwise the apostrophe indicates a possessive – which might spur some meaningless, specious debate about our imperial aspirations.
John McCain’s “Straight Talk Express” has been riding on 4 flat tires for months now, and desperation is coming out in non-truths in every word McCain/Palin say. It’s very much up to the educated to demand the truth from McCain/Palin. After 8 years of lies Americans deserve the whole truth and nothing but the truth from those asking for the privilege to govern us.
Perhaps a big old deformation lawsuit from RIM and Mike Lazaridis, Jim Balsillie can get McCain to backtrack on yet another lie. If nothing else it’s been a favorite past time watch McCain/Palin spin and say what they really meant to say.
If true McCain owes our favorite patent troll NTP, Inc. lots and lots of money. McCain and Palin can try to get adjoining court rooms, lots of lawsuits against them with so little time.
McCain is a moron and is following in the line of unintelligent, incurious and dishonest Republican candidates.
McCain/Palin are setting records for lying in this campaign.
It is embarrassing that this election should even be close, because McCain/Palin is a non-serious ticket.
Yeah, it was a stupid thing to say but in fairness (1) it was a staffer that said it and (2) he himself laughed off the comment as “boneheaded” – http://www.11alive.com/news/watercooler/story.aspx?storyid=121219
Some further opinion on McCain’s lack of computer literacy.
Could Obama be the one not telling the truth? I seriously doubt that from a Democrat!
Hmm…I detect sarcasm…
McCain can’t use a keyboard because the viet cong broke his fingers. Classy for Obama to mock a POW.
Thats a lame excuse, another lie from the John McCain’s “Straight Talk Express”.
The scary thing is that this comment didn’t come from just any staffer on the McCain camp, but from his chief economic adviser.
It makes you wonder: Is McCain’s chief economist that stupid, or has the culture if dishonesty and lies so permeated the campaign that he feels he can just say anything?
I’m willing to be it’s the latter explanation; the McCain camp has the cancer of dishonesty and deception growing within it.
But hey, when you have no issues on which to run, because your ideas basically suck and are proven to be failures, then you only have the lies.
