Obama has a new ad running that says McCain is out of touch because he does not use e-mail and isn't computer savvy. They should do some research before putting out demeaning ads like this, he has trouble typing thanks to his years as a POW but he does dictate to his wife or an aide as was reported in the '00 campaign by Forbes, via Ace and Cap'n Ed.
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.
He can get around the internet to the extent he needs to and has plenty of very web savvy folks working for him. I think Obama's ad insults far more people than it does to help him, there are millions of folks that don't live for text messages and e-mail. I am a blogger that doesn't own a cell phone and when I eventually do for business purposes it will be of the simplest form to make phone calls only. The Obama campaign is looking more and more like a child trying to ride a bike for the first time with no training wheels, a wreck a second. Heck he even had the audacity of stupid to question McCain's patriotism today, well stupid is as stupid does.
