Confirmed: McCain Aware of Internet

posted by on June 25 at 12:05 PM

In case you missed this, an exchange at the recent Personal Democracy Forum in New York City between McCain adviser Mark Soohoo and Tracy Russo, a former blogger for John Edwards:

The picture gets clearer: John McCain, admitted computer illiterate, has nevertheless been fully briefed on the existence of these here tubes.

Everyone knows our fearless Leader has always been aware of the Internets, ever since he himself manhandled the tubes to connect it for shipping wood from Texas to his birthplace of Panama.

It's subsequent use for pr0n was just a bonus.

One that fills the campaign coffers of the campaign every single day.

This gets real interesting when McCain starts saying how you have to have served in the military and you have to have visited Iraq so many times to know how to set policy. He's going to have to argue that for some things you must have hands-on experience, but for other things your advisers can tell you what's going on.

the democrats should really run some attack ads on this one, how the fuck can you not know how to use a computer in this day and age and be a fucking SENATOR, let alone PRESIDENT?

I don't want another president that doesn't know what the fucking internet is. But I guess when you're 97...

Al Gore invented Twitter.

McCain was all a twitter today when he read in his printed newspaper about people blogging 24/7 ...

"Pervs! You can't do that in public!" he shouted, raising his cane to chest height in his anger.

I always thought that Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox laid down the innernet tubes.

And I'm sure Paul Bunyan would never twitter!

Oh, I liked that woman's analogy of explaining the internet to your grandmother. Spot on. Hahaha!

Recently I realized that I too am aware the internets. I would like to share the worlds wide webs and internets with you, such as the youtubes, the palpay and the ebay, such as.
Learn how the giant spiders spun the world wide web. See how the net is strung together by nets and what have you at
