John McCain invented the BlackBerry

According to a McCain spokesperson, John McCain invented the BlackBerry. Too bad after inventing the BlackBerry, he gave it to the Canadians!

From Jonathan Martin’s Politico Blog:

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.
