Wait a minute... This is not true! The need top give him more credit than that... He invented the sun dial! I mean, when the man says he is "petrified", he really means it.

Just like Al Gore created the Internet?

And how Al Gore claims his marriage was 'the' inspiration for Love Story?

He doesn't know how to turn on a computer but he helped invent the blackberry? He does know that it's not something you make cobbler out of, right?

What McCain's adviser said was taken completely out of context. It's like saying this 'quote' here:

"I...like to...eat...children."

You fail to see that what was actually said was:

"I am a full supporter of gun rights, and I like to hunt. I get so much joy out of being able to eat my game. My children are my life, I wouldn't know what I'd so without them."

Legitimate quote, but it was taken completely out of context....

He didn't exactly "invent" the sundial; it was just an accident, a bit of serendipity. He was playing Stack the Rocks," a popular game with kids of his generation in those early, pre-AD years, when he noticed that there was a shadow that moved as the sun moved.

There was no concept of hours yet, but he did realize that when the shadow pointed in one direction it was time to eat breakfast and when it was pointing in another direction it was time to go hunting for the eving meal. He also pointed out that when the shadow disappeared altogether it was night and time to go to sleep.

I think his invention of the Blackberry pales in comparison.

Yep, he actually meant the berry you make cobbler out of!

Back when he invented farming with his buddies Cain and Abel, he figured out a way to breed blackberries.

And next time you see him, ask him about the time he showed Noah how to use a hammer.

Now if we were like the McPalinistas, we would be spreading all over the internet, "John McCain claims he invented blackberries." But we don't have to make shit up. They keep piling it up around themselves, daring us to throw it. It's odd how all these people who claim to be Christians are so willing to lie, slander and libel. Aren't they worried that breaking the 9th Commandment will get them in trouble with the big guy? Makes me wonder about the depth of their faith. Or do they just get born again regularly as insurance?

You must be living on the moon. Obama bashing went on for months but obviously that head of steam is long spent. Nothing but false accusations and not one proven fact. He went on every talk show and answered question about Wright and Resko. But it's hard to bash someone who has nothing to hide and who has not not done anything wrong, immoral or illegal.

But there is plenty to talk about with McCain and Palin. A lot of secrecy and mysterious actions that they have both done. Not being open and honest only makes people more suspicious.

Might as well stop crying about the unfairness of the media. Republican Tribune, Fox, WGN, Clear Channel, Limbaugh, O'Rielly, Hanity, etc., etc. not enough for you? Maybe because there is no meat for the frying pan. Too bad!

Oh that is so nice I like Blackberry Jam a lot. I guess he also invented credit as it is a fundemental economic tool. Does he have Blackberry Jam in all of his 9 houses too? If I made $500,ooo per year I would have Blackberry Jam in all my houses too.
