Obama Sticks Both Feet In Mouth With New Ad

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.

If you expect Obama or his campaign to do anything logical, thoughtful, honorable or even intelligent, think again.

And truth? They can't even pronounce it, much less spell it.

Well. That one definetly is up there among the enteries for this year's Annual Toe Jam Award. I wonder how many "uh's" will be needed to explain away this one ?

Words fail me. Almost.

First, we have Joe Biden encouraging a handicapped, wheelchair bound Chuck Graham to stand up for a crowd.

Then we have Obama's Law Review Article, the only one he wrote, on the topic of abortion, where he says the state has an interest in " preventing increasing numbers of children from being born in to lives of pain and despair." Got that? If you are pregnant with a child with a possible birth defect, the state has an interest in you aborting it. So much for Trig Palin.

And now we have the latest ad from the Obama/Biden camp making fun of John McCain for not being able to use a computer or send email. Obama/Biden poke fun at McCain, suggesting he is old and doesn't get the new technology.

One small problem.

John McCain's hands were so severly crushed by his torture as a POW, he can't use a keyboard. It is physically impossible for him. John McCain cannot brush his own hair or tie his own shoes. He is a brilliant man, but he cannot lift one of his arms higher than his elbow. Prior to being tortured and having his bones broken over and over, John McCain could fly jets. So let's not pretend McCain is some doddering buffoon who doesn't understand technology.

John McCain is handicapped.

Obama and Biden are asses.
