What's Next ... An "Ek-A-Lec-Tic" Reading List?

My, My, My ...

If you had to go through brain freeze, to come up with something that would top the news on the day that George Carlin dies ...

Ta-Da! ... Stumblin' Bumblin' John McCain comes riding in ....

Or, in fairness, we should say, his staff.

First, a random image (perhaps while in the throes of that brain freeze);

Stumblin' Bumblin' John, in the Senate with his colleague, Ted Stevens, kicking it around, snickering at some young staffers, how the two of them have mastered all those "Internet Tubes" ...

This precious SB John moment comes via one his his aides, Mark Soohoo, at the Personal Democracy Forum in New York.

From Ben Smith's "The Google";

Pressed again on McCain's tech savvy, he defends his candidate.

"You don’t actually have to use a computer to understand how it shapes the country," he says.

"You actually do," former Edwards blogger Tracy Russo responds, suggesting he try to explain Twitter to his grandmother and then ask her how that applies to governing.

"John McCain is aware of the Internet," says Soohoo. "This is a man who has a very long history of understanding on a range of issues."
"Is aware of the Internet"


This goes some way in explaining his wife's recipe thievery.

We can only speculate, that McCain thinks that she, or someone, just ripped'em out of those "Internet Tubes" as they whizzed through Arizona.

We know that The Commander Guy uses "The Google".

So, does that indicate Stumblin' Bumblin' John McCain still has a ways to go?

He may be "aware of the Internet", but is he hip to "The Google"?

If we extend this out, to the differences between his campaign, and Barack Obama's, we may have to lean towards the direction that SB John is a "The Yahoo" man.
