    Think Progress McCain Adviser: McCain ‘Helped Create’ The Blackberry

    Asked what work John McCain did as chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee that helped him understand the financial markets, the candidate's top economic adviser wielded visual evidence: his BlackBerry.

    "He did this," Douglas Holtz-Eakin told reporters this morning, holding up his BlackBerry. "Telecommunications of the United States is a premier innovation in the past 15 years, comes right through the Commerce Committee. So you're looking at the miracle John McCain helped create and that's what he did."

    Well...it was a bad choice of prop. He should've just said "McCain helped...blah blah...Commerce Committee blah blah" and then he wouldn't look like a fool.

    Still, at least we get to bring up the Al Gore inventing the internet stuff again, so it's not a complete waste...

    :D

    You're not paying attention: it's Al Gore, Al Gore!

    Why won't you people ever understand??!! We've got 6 months to live unless we all go back to walking. Even horses are no good anymore, because they fart too much and that methane is choking us!!! It's CHOKING US!! What's wrong with you people! :mad:

    [off camera: "Hey, are my private jet, cavalcade of limosines, and 100-foot private yacht ready yet?? I gotta get home to my house which uses ten times the energy of the average US household.... <Secret Service forcibly snatch camera, cell phone, and laptop away.... !! a brief scuffle ensues, then all is silent...... > ]

    And all we say is thank <whomever> for Al Gore and the Dems!! Why, without Al Gore we would never have found out how to tell people how they should live on less energy (while we live on ten times the average American's energy use).

    Only in America, indeed.
