“[Bush Patsy McCain] said, ruefully, that he had not mastered how to use the Internet and relied on his wife and aides… and press secretary… to get him online to read newspapers and politcal websites and blogs.
“‘They go on for me,’ he said. ‘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.'”
“I don’t e-mail, I’ve never felt the particular need to e-mail.”
It’s a goodness that Bush Patsy McCain will soon be adept at “getting on” himself, but his utter computer illiteracy is startling. It proves that Bush Patsy McCain sat out the great technological revolution of ~1984-Now. This technological revolution has not only altered the way people communicate and shop, but also how most every business operates. People like to grouse about e-mail overloads and multi-tasking, but the simple truth is that the Web and Internet allows for the facilitation of information gathering and distribution that is how most “office” work is done today.
Similar to his repeated terrible judgment (Keating Five, Lobbyist Iseman, Bush Patsydom etc.) this shows an astounding lack of curiosity on the part of Bush Patsy McCain, a deplorable trait that has left this doddering anachronism who would President fundamentally ignorant of the world we live in today.
