But Can Obama Google?

By now we have all heard and or seen the ad from Camp Obama declaring John McCain unfit for the position of POTUS because he can't figure out email. I am guessing they don't have google at Camp Obama headquarters - either that or everyone is still in Alaska desperately looking for dirt on Sarah.

Had one of the 300 advisers done a bit of surfing themselves, they may have discovered this gem from 2000 -

In certain ways, McCain was a natural Web candidate. Chairman of the Senate Telecommunications Subcommittee and regarded as the U.S. Senate's savviest technologist, McCain is an inveterate devotee of email. His nightly ritual is to read his email together with his wife, Cindy. The injuries he incurred as a Vietnam POW make it painful for McCain to type. Instead, he dictates responses that his wife types on a laptop. "She's a whiz on the keyboard, and I'm so laborious," McCain admits.

Great job, Barack Obama Advertising Gurus! You have just created an ad poking fun at John McCain's war injuries. Had Senator Obama shown up for work a bit more, he may have noticed that Chairman part, too.

It just occurred to me those whizkids at Camp Obama had their own technical snafu - 3am text message anyone? Not only was there an overload issue with getting the message out (hmm, that couldn't have been planned for) but they didn't even think through the logistics of getting Biden out without anyone in the press noticing! They had been camped out in front of the leading contenders houses for a few days looking for activity, which came in the form of Secret Service Agents whisking Biden away under the cover of...nothing.
