This quote from Karl Rove is as laughably idiotic as it is tellingly telling.
On Fox News Sunday yesterday, even the Minister of Information himself had to admit that John McCain's campaign has "gone too far" and has said things about Obama "that are not 100 percent the truth." But he could only do so by dolling out equal blame to Barack Obama's shameful campaign of lies.
But they then say he doesn't even know how to use a — you know, doesn't send e-mail. Well, this is because his war injuries keep him from being able to use a keyboard. He can't type. You know, it's like saying he can't do jumping jacks.
Well, there's a reason why he can't raise his arms above his head. There's a reason why he doesn't have the nimbleness in his fingers.
Oh! Well, that makes one-hundred-percent-complete, not-horseshit sense! John McCain doesn't understand email because of his war injuries! The damage done to his body is so bad he can't move his fingers on a keyboard. He must have lost the complete faculty of his arms. We should make that brave man our president.
Nevermind that John McCain regained his flight status after returning from Vietnam. That doesn't mean anything. C'mon, any asshole can fly a fighter jet. But you really have to have incredible digital dexterity to manipulate a keyboard. I mean, look at Stephen Hawking. That guy's always flying all over the place. But you don't see him painstakingly writing dense and long scientific documents.
Oh, and I also agree with Rove about how calling out John McCain for not understanding the confounding technicalities of writing an electronic missive is the exact same thing as saying that Barack Obama wants to give porno to your toddler.
They really are the exact same thing.
