We Have McCain To Thank!

art.mccainphone.ap While it is common knowledge that Al Gore invented the Internet, many of you might not know that John McCain, Republican Presidential Nominee, invented the BlackBerry! I know this is hard to believe, but according to Senator John McCain’s Senior Domestic Policy Adviser, its true! And I quote “You’re looking at the miracle that John McCain helped create.” Speaking of the BlackBerry in the adviser’s hand.

Well, just as Al Gore did not invent the internet, McCain did not invent the BlackBerry. According to the Associated Press; Sen. John McCain “laughed” when he heard his adviser’s remark about the BlackBerry, another aide says.

The Obama Camp was quick to jump on this one.

“If John McCain hadn’t said that ‘the fundamentals of our economy are strong’ on the day of one of our nation’s worst financial crises, the claim that he invented the BlackBerry would have been the most preposterous thing said all week,” said Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton.

Hopefully you all got a laugh out of this as I know I sure did. It is actually rather sad how a silly joke or reference made by one person can explode into the biggest news story of the day but entertaining none the less.

Thanks to the Associated Press & The Huffington Post for this story.

  1. i told mccain crackberry will make him euphoric/dillusional he aint listen…oh well. hope takes a 12 step program and stops making an ass out of himself like amy winehouse.

  2. You know the whole Al Gore story which has been told and retold so many times. He actually said “create” refering to funding for, and right-wingers spun that into “invented.”. He never said he invented it. People don’t look into things for themselves.

  3. Obama’s ad said McCain doesn’t know how to send an email, so why does he have a blackberry anyways?

    More lies from Obama? Is this the “new kind of politics” we can expect from him?

  4. No, just the reality created by Newt Gingrich, Ken Starr, and Karl Rove. BTW it has been years since BlackBerrys were e-mail only devices. I doubt many celebs photographed with BlackBerrys send e-mail from them.

  5. “No, just the reality created by Newt Gingrich, Ken Starr, and Karl Rove.”

    Yah, because we all know that the Democrats are completely above reproach, right? 😉

  6. No, not close to true. I personally don’t even like Obama for his own past, and generally most politicians are not to be trusted. However no one feeds more lies and BS and calls it American Patriotic Apple Pie on a Wal-mart chinese made plate and plastic fork made from Saudi petroleum more than the GOP.

  7. I heard that John McCain once kicked Chuck Norris in the balls!!!!
