What bothers me more are tons of other things that John McCain doesn't know how to do. Or won't. Using the Internet (or rather NOT using it) is just another reason for me not to vote for him.

lol

won't do.
Support gay marriage
support single parent adoption and/or gay parent adoption
support abortion rights (he wants to ban it)
support reproductive rights for women (for instance birth control, etc.)
support eradication of the domestic and global Gag Rule
support comprehensive sex education (insists on abstinence only)
commit to equal pay for equal work

Those are just the issues important to me, let alone the economy, environment, terrorism, and more human rights issues.

Yeah I guess that's true. I should have clarified that. As for things he doesn't know how to do, I'm sure there are tons, but then again, there are tons of thinks everyone can't do. :P lol

isn't it a sharp contrast between Al Gore being involved with the internet 30-40 years ago, versus McCain in 2008 still not figuring out what these tubes are?

The President has military advisors...I wonder if President McCain would have an Internet advisor trying to explain this stuff to him.

meh. . .non-issue in my book.

Kind of like that Obama magazine cover.

I just don't see these issues as all that vital.

When did McCain ever say anything about these tube things.?


Quote:
Q: What websites if any do you look at regularly?


Mr. McCain: Brooke and Mark show me Drudge, obviously, everybody watches, for better or for worse, Drudge. Sometimes I look at Politico. Sometimes RealPolitics, sometimes.

(Mrs. McCain and Ms. Buchanan both interject: "Meagan's blog!")

Mr. McCain: Excuse me, Meagan's blog. And we also look at the blogs from Michael and from you that may not be in the newspaper, that are just part of your blog.

Q: But do you go on line for yourself?

Mr. McCain: They go on for me. I am learning to get online myself, and I will have that down fairly soon, getting on myself. I don't expect to be a great communicator, I don't expect to set up my own blog, but I am becoming computer literate to the point where I can get the information that I need - including going to my daughter's blog first, before anything else.

I guess they confuse that comment with the speech by Senator Stevens from Alaska, who spoke about the "series of tubes", or deliberately attribute it to McCain.

Here you can hear Stevens' speech: Senator Stevens MP3

Personally, I couldn't care less that he can't use a computer. So what? THe President of the U.S. has more important things to do than play with computers. But then again, I say this because my fiancee is in his fifties and can only check email..when he really wants to try. The fact that he's not real computer-savvy isn't important. He can leave that computer stuff up to me. As to it 'showing his age'...ummm...so? Non-issue, folks. I'm more worried about those other issues others have mentioned above. Provided he even becomes President.
