McCain invented the Blackberry

Yep, that's what they're saying now:

Asked what work John McCain did as chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee that helped him understand the financial markets, the candidate's top economic adviser wielded visual evidence: his BlackBerry.

"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."

Al Gore, call your office.

I know I know, they didn't say he invented anything. But this is very similar to Al Gore's statement on how he helped to create the internet. It took half a quote and it was all over that Al Gore was making false claims about inventing the internet. The only difference here is that this was an adviser to the McCain campaign, and we all know John McCain is not responsible for what his campaign does. He was a POW.
