John McCain Can't Use a Computer

Pam Spaulding caught this one:
Interviewer: Are you a Mac or a PC user?

McCain: Neither. I am an illiterate that has to rely on my wife for all the assistance that I can get.
Oh, COME the fuck on. This is not a good sign. Understanding technology (and this is just EMAIL) is not some frosting on the modern world. It's an essential component of the choices that government needs to make - in safety, in education, in the economy, in community.

Pam's comments are right on:
There are plenty of "seasoned" citizens out there who surf the web and know how to use email, so he doesn't get a pass for playing the crusty old coot card. There is zero excuse for John McCain to be completely helpless at the keyboard. If he cannot grasp the basic concept of email, the Internet, blogs or even a word processor on his own, we know the man is living in the past. You cannot delegate out knowledge about 21st century communication and technology that you would need to make critical decisions about the direction you want to take this country, and how to protect and secure it in the digital age. Completely unacceptable.
