Not only is John McCain’s Chief Economic Adviser suggesting that we should vote for John McCain because McCain would like someday to write a bill like the bill Barack Obama wrote over a year ago, but, well, he’s also saying, um, er, well…
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.”
It is indeed a miracle, considering that he has no idea how to use it.
This is not a reason to vote for John McCain. It’s not a reason to vote against John McCain either. It’s just plain silly.
