McCain Lacks Internet Capabilities

Posted in News, Politics tagged , , , at 10:45 pm by Katharine Lackey

The presumptive nominee of the Grand Old Party barely knows how to use the Internet, the New York Times reports.

He doesn’t know how to text, blog, or Twitter and relies on young staffers to keep up his Facebook page as well as other internet doings.

While it’s not really essential for a president to know how to use the Interwebs, it would be useful for those occassions when a threat comes to light that deals with the Internet. If some terrorist is using the Internet as a way to get his message across and coordinate attacks, will McCain know enough about the web to be able to make a good decision about what should be done (without relying on the expertise of others?)

Just a few thoughts.
