Just a Google

This seems destined to enter the Internets lexicon as yet another sign of a politician's cluelessness about the Internet:

Today, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was fundraising in Richmond, VA, and joked about how he vets prospective VP candidates:

“We’re going through a process where you get a whole bunch of names, and ya … Well, basically, it’s a Google. You just, you know, what you can find out now on the Internet. It’s remarkable, you know.”

Could there possibly be any more succinct summary of why McCain is the wrong man for these times?

The Google doesn't have a 'wisdom' button. This is an excellent indicator of wisdom. Or lack thereof.

I guess if you haven't had videos of yourself doing stupid things naked posted online and tagged with your name, you're on his shortlist.
