Default McCain admits being "illiterate"

ok, maybe it is only computer illiteracy but.....

[YOUTUBE]M9Jbw2-f8IQ[/YOUTUBE]

....shouldnt the potential leader of one of the most technologically advanced nations, who will have to correspond with thousands of people, who can fly a fighter jet, and who will have access to "the button" atleast know how to use a computer?

is he just lazy or that unwilling to learn new things?

Maybe we could send him Video Professor to watch while he's doing nothing on the campaign bus.

At least he's not claiming to have invented the internet.

Well Barack Obama didn't wash his hands after he went to the bathroom this afternoon

Seriously, can we quit nit-picking?

NO.



in the meantime i will keep on laughing. my 5 year old knows how to log on and can navigate youtube and search her webkinz (some thing kids are into). she can use paintshop and take her own picures using i-mac photos.

granted im not that computer litterate either, but im also not running for president. i would like my president to atleast be experienced in some of the simpler things. i cant be more difficult than flying a fighter jet, right?

I honestly don't see the need for him to be even proficient on a PC. He'll have everything read to him while he's eating breakfast or shaving -or- handed to him just after he boards AF one. He'll have no time to surf the net!

So you think you can fly a jet fighter?

A real one not a computer game?

Can you even fly a Cessana 172? I did in fact I did my solo in one. Then owned a Piper Aztec and flew it.

It is not as easy as it looks. Remember a landing is just a controlled crash.
