Smug Politics

I don't really think that smug politics is going to get Obama anywhere with the conservative vote. This advertisement which talks about the fact that McCain is a technical dinosaur *, only appeals to people who (like myself) are going to vote for Obama anyway. Obama, please don't lower your campaign to these levels.



* My step-grandfather is 90 and can send emails just fine, so McCain has no excuse.

Update: Maybe it is a good idea McCain doesn't use email.

no excuse except that 5 years of torture left it very difficult to type.

I don't think it has everything to do with his hands. Read this quote:

"I use the Blackberry, but I don’t e-mail, I’ve never felt the particular need to e-mail."

I guess I can relate. Kinda. In 1991, when I got my first email address, I did not feel the need to email either. This was entirely because I didn't know anyone else with an email address.
