John McCain Doesn't Know How To Go Online And He's Never Sent An Email

By Robert Paul Reyes

The Internet is one of the most important inventions in history; it has impacted every aspect of society. This is the Wired Generation, and a person who isn`t hooked up to the Matrix is inconsequential.

John McCain Doesn't Know How To Go Online

Life without the Internet is not worth living; I can`t imagine making do without it. John McCain has no problem living without the Internet, he may not even know how to log on to a computer.

"Senator John McCain, the Republican presidential candidate, has admitted that he never uses email and that his staff has to show him websites because he is only just `learning to get online myself.`

When asked if he went online himself, the Arizona senator responded: "They go on for me. I am learning to get online myself, and I will have that down fairly soon, getting on myself."

Quotation from Telegraph.Co.UK

The man who yearns to be Leader of the Free World doesn`t have the intellectual wherewithal to get online, his staffers have to do it for him. This sad state of affairs clearly illustrates that time has passed McCain by. I`m sorry but McCain is too damned old to be president.

You can`t prosper or get ahead in life without being Internet-literate. In this world that moves at broadband speed, McCain hasn`t even achieved dial-up speed.

No wonder that Barack Obama, who is well versed in the Internet, is favored to win the general election. Obama successfully used the Internet to build a world-class fundraising machine, and to communicate with and inspire his followers.

I can`t imagine a president who doesn`t know how to use the Internet:

McCain: Romney, you`re my vice-president, do something useful and get on the Internet for me, I want to see what Drudge is saying about me. What`s taking so long, maybe if you feed the mouse some cheese it will move quicker.
