Worried that America might elect to the presidency a guy who openly admits he can't use a computer without assistance? Have no fear. Mark SooHoo, John McCain's "deputy e-campaign manager," says:

You don't necessarily have to use a computer to understand, you know, how it shapes the country. … John McCain is aware of the Internet.

Imagine if Barack Obama had a gaping lack of knowledge on something integral to our lives as Americans and to the success of the country going forward. Would you be satisfied if one of his staffers told you, "Barack Obama is aware of the economy"?
