McCain Doesn't Use a Computer or 'The Google'

Just saw this on Politico regarding McCain aide Mark Soohoo at Personal Democracy Forum, NYC, The Google:
"Soohoo is getting beat up a bit before what isn't exactly a McCain audience at the tech conference.

Pressed again on McCain's tech savvy, he defends his candidate.

'You don’t actually have to use a computer to understand how it shapes the country,' he says.

'You actually do,' former Edwards blogger Tracy Russo responds, suggesting he try to explain Twitter to his grandmother and then ask her how that applies to governing.

'John McCain is aware of the Internet,' says Soohoo. 'This is a man who has a very long history of understanding on a range of issues.'"
Happy the Mac is back

Hey John McCain, give my mom, 82 years young, a call and she can show you how to use a computer, blogger, 'The Google' and Twitter.


  1. I caught The Google once. It was nasty, took me 2 weeks to get over it. I'm still suffering a bit from its effects to this day. I'm impressed that, at his age, McCain has still been able to fend off catching The Google for so long.

  2. Thanks for the plug.

    As of this moment I haven't heard from McCain, I'll keep you posted.
