McCain Just Now, "Learning to get Online" Also to "Make Toast" and "Program the VCR"

McCain doing his best to not sound like the out-of-touch Grandpa that we all know he is in an interview with the NYT. From Politico:
John McCain says in an interview published this weekend that he has begun learning the wonders of the World Wide Web, but does not yet e-mail or have a BlackBerry.[...]

“I am learning to get online myself, and I will have that down fairly soon, getting on myself,” McCain told Adam Nagourney and Michael Cooper of The New York Times.

“I don’t expect to be a great communicator, I don’t expect to set up my own blog, but I am becoming computer literate to the point where I can get the information that I need.”

McCain said websites his staff often shows him include The Drudge Report, Politico.com and Real Clear Politics.
"I will have that down fairly soon"? Fantastic. Great to know that he's almost figured out how to double-click on the Internet icon and then type in google.com. If he wasn't able to get that in like 3-5 weeks we might have cause to worry about his age, intelligence and over-all ability to lead the most powerful nation in the world. But because he will have that down "fairly soon" we all can relax.
