FDR won WWII without AOL.
Reagan didn't use email . . . are you saying Reagan sucked, you pinko ratfink loser?
McCain is absolutely fair game. He has taken the low road against Obama (which, frankly, I am all for and hope he is saving the best for last) so McCain is open to taunts that he is old, that he is rich and out-of-touch, the consumate Washington insider, who chooses an alaskan amazon to be his veep.
But isn't it a bit of a low blow to say we should laugh at the guy because he can't use his hands very well? Because they were CRUSHED BY HIS COMMIE TORTURERS no less?
Is this a fruitful tack for the Obamanids to take? Will it play at the VFW?
Barack Obama should leave the Isotoners on - he just isn't good at playing the bully (he doesn't have a knack for it, to his credit) and he doesn't do his research: the claim by McCain that he can't use email because his captors ruined his hands isn't just some ad hoc campaign response. From 2004:
McCain's severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes.
Update: Ouch - "I think they spent months trying to figure out how they can position Obama as better qualified than McCain, and basically came up with the fact that Obama can type."
Update: Double Ouch - "In a similar vein I guess it’s an outrage that the blind governor of New York David Patterson doesn’t know how to drive a car. After all, transportation issues are pretty important. How dare he serve as governor while being ignorant of what it’s like to navigate New York’s highways."
Update: Doh! - “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.”
