The Gaffe Within The Gaffe

If you thought the Obama campaign advert which denigrated John McCain for not using e-mail was bad, you were right but you don't know just how right you were.

The immediate problem for Obama is that the reason John McCain doesn't use e-mail is he can't type because John Kerry's friends from North Vietnam smahed his hands so badly.

You think that's a pretty bad mistake? Well get this.

There are no computers in the White House. President's do not send e-mails, or use blackberries or suchlike. And for good reason. Security. Just imagine what would happent if the Mayor of North Shore City was POTUS and he got home after a pissy meeting in the Oval Office and sent off a couple of shirty barbs to good ole Vladimir?

So Barack Husseain Obama, who is desperately trying to paint governor Sarah Palin as unready to be VP, doesn't even know the basic house keeping rules for the White House.

This is the fool who would be President.

Well then this story must have been a fantasy dreamed up when McCain was having flashbacks to his prison cell.

Better still Adolf go to the source himself (McCain not Goldberg)

Mr. McCain: "I use the Blackberry, but I don’t e-mail, I’ve never felt the particular need to e-mail. I read e-mails all the time, but the communications that I have with my friends and staff are oral and done with my cell phone. I have the luxury of being in contact with them literally all the time. We now have a phone on the plane that is usable on the plane, so I just never really felt a need to do it. But I do – could I just say, really – I understand the impact of blogs on American politics today and political campaigns. I understand that. And I understand that something appears on one blog, can ricochet all around and get into the evening news, the front page of The New York Times. So, I do pay attention to the blogs. And I am not in any way unappreciative of the impact that they have on entire campaigns and world opinion."

Seems clear to me. If the reasaon was his hands were smashed up by the Vietnamese why didn't he say so?

m starting to thing that Obamas staff are a cluster of bloody idiots. THEY certainly are unfit for office and if this is his A team then he has no bussiness being in the oval office.

Besides, it seems he'd miss is daily porn and game of frogger.

As for there being no computers in the White House.

Up there with Palins expertise on Russia because she can see it from Alaska....


But hang on Ackers?
Aren't the Dummicrats attacking McCain for not being tech savvy.
And while I was able to link to a story suggesting mcCain might not be able to use keyboards, you then link to a story showing McCain uses Blackberries, understands blogs, etc, etc.
You have shot the Dummicrat's fox, Ackers, well done.
While the status concerning McCain's hands is , shall we say ambiguous, it is certainly wrong of the Dummicrats to accuse him of not being techsavvy.
Indeed, I would add that the Republicans seem to be doing particulalrly well in their use of You Tube and their little ads.

Agreed it's not an issue I'd be focussing on if I was Obama.

James Fallows worth reading this morning on the moral element of conflict.

One of those open secrets that did the rounds after Bush took office was that the Clinton admin removed all the Ws from all the White House keyboards.
True or not? Who knows, but a lot of folks wanted to believe that Clinton and Co could be that childish.

The Clintons lost and should be in jail for all the damage they did to American and Freedom.

Sarah Palin: VP2009-2011
President 2011-2020.
