“John McCain is aware of the internet”. This ringing endorsement of the
71-year old Republican nominee’s vision for the role of new media in a
21st century democracy was uttered by none other than a McCain tech aide
at Monday’s Personal Democracy Forum in New York City. Not only did
Mark Soohoo effectively confirm reports that the Arizona Senator is
computer illiterate, he also highlighted yet another core policy front –
along with McCain’s abysmal understanding of the economy–on which
the candidate lacks even the most rudimentary knowledge required to lead
the free world. (Not to mention a country that ranks a meager 15th in the world when it comes to homes with broadband access). Watch McCain’s man and the candidate himself get taken to school by Tracy
Russo, former Internet Director of the John Edwards campaign.
