Do the Democrats recognize this Fatuous Blunder?Glenn Reynolds summarizes it extremely well, synthesizing the efforts of many other bloggers.
Democrats make fun of McCain for not using e-mail. He's a stone-ager, unlike The One!

In certain ways, McCain was a natural Web candidate. Chairman of the Senate Telecommunications Subcommittee and regarded as the U.S. Senate's savviest technologist, McCain is an inveterate devotee of email. His nightly ritual is to read his email together with his wife, Cindy. The injuries he incurred as a Vietnam POW make it painful for McCain to type. Instead, he dictates responses that his wife types on a laptop. "She's a whiz on the keyboard, and I'm so laborious," McCain admits.
