John McCain Didn’t Just Invent The Blackberry

John McCain invented the Blackberry

No, John McCain did not, in fact, invent the Blackberry as his senior domestic policy advisor, Douglas Holtz-Eakin, claimed earlier. “Telecommunications of the United States, the premiere innovation in the past 15 years, comes right through the Commerce Committee. So you’re looking at the miracle that John McCain helped create,” Holtz-Eakin said. “And that’s what he did. He both regulated and deregulated the industry.”

Sure, I don’t doubt that, really despite the fact that McCain admits that he doesn’t really know how to use a computer or send an e-mail
but I’m sure he had something to do with…innovation of telecommunications in the United States. That’s all well and good but…RIM/Research in Motion, the company that actually invented the Blackberry…is a Canadian company.

But hey, if Al Gore invented the internet…

I don’t know why they had to bring up the Blackberry when there are other, possibly more important things that McCain probably helped create. Fire, for example…
