Today's McCain Lie

Another day, another lie.

In case you hadn't heard Senator John McCain, acknowledged computer illiterate, now claims to have invented the ubiquitous Blackberry PDA!

At a gathering in Washington today, McCain domestic policy adviser Douglas Holtz-Eakin was asked about his candidate's grasp of high-tech matters. Holtz-Eakin held up his BlackBerry and, in a nod toward McCain's onetime tenure as head of the Senate Commerce Committee, said, "He did this."

And unlike Al Gore who a) never claimed that he invented the internet, and b) was none the less an early supporter, McCain's claim is just an out and out fabrication.

Ah yes, the narrative takes hold.

(BTW, for those playing along at home, the DNC has created a helpful wiki page to track the McCain/Palin lying bastards Express)
