Oh, this is too juicy....the next al gore...McCain, I'm loving his staff.:sidelol:


McCain’s senior policy adviser Doug Holtz-Eakin pushed the senator’s economic qualifications today, highlighting his role on the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee. But when pressed about what McCain did as a committee member that gave him the kind of experience needed to handle the current market turmoil, Holtz-Eakin did something unexpected: He pulled his BlackBerry out of his suit jacket pocket.

“He did this,” Holtz-Eakin said, referring to McCain’s role in developing telecommunications in the U.S. “The premier innovation in the past 15 years comes right through the Commerce Committee. You’re looking at the miracle that John McCain helped create and that’s what he did.”

This is getting better everyday.. btw this is from the wallstreet journal.

UPDATE: According to a McCain campaign pool report, senior aide Matt McDonald said that McCain “laughed” when he was told about Holtz-Eakin’s comment. “He would not claim to be the inventor of anything, much less the BlackBerry. This was obviously a boneheaded joke by a staffer,” McDonald said.

If anyone but Al Gore makes a statement like this most well adjusted human beings understand that person in fact was telling a joke of some kind.

Are you saying John McCain said this?

If not, what are you talking about?

And let me guess, do you call yourself another one of these MBoards IND thinkers?

This thread was started with every intent of making it sound as if JM made the statement. Which is a lie, and not only that it is a joke to boot, yet, it still gets the media's attention.
