In trying to explain exactly what John McCain has done as chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, campaign spokesman Douglas Holtz-Eakin went for the gold and made a claim that brought a blush to Al Gore's cheeks:
"He did this," Douglas Holtz-Eakin told reporters this morning, holding up his BlackBerry. "Telecommunications of the United States is a premier innovation in the past 15 years, comes right through the Commerce Committee. So you're looking at the miracle John McCain helped create and that's what he did."
To think of the beating that Gore took for the whole "invented the Internet" ( a claim he never even made despite being instrumental in securing the funding that went into developing the 20th century's greatest technological advancement), makes you wonder if McCain will get tagged with this whopper. I doubt it.
