Lee Gomes argues McCain's computer illiteracy is a good thing:

A computer, far from making you more productive, instead loads you down with things to do, and it's important for the machine to know who is boss. Most people don't have the luxury of off-loading their email-reading chores to a group of competent assistants. It's an office perk that presidents are still important enough to deserve.

Silly season has officially begun.
