She’s right, you know

Meghan McCain, daughter of GOP nominee John, called it out. Part of the reason we lost is that Obama utilized today’s technology and continually beat us over the head with it.

Many in the campaign looked at her when she recommended writing a blog for her dad’s campaign:

McCain, who authored a popular blog on her father’s Web site while he was running for president, also recounts early pushback from Republican strategists when she first sought to establish the Web site.

“Many of the established Republican strategists told me that young people would not visit my web site,” she wrote. “I used to categorize many of the advisors in my father’s campaign into one of two groups: those that ‘respected’ the Internet and those who didn’t. It was a running line between me and my friends who worked on my site.”

I mean, really? It’s 2009 and these people treat the internet like it’s some new fangled gadget that they’ll learn later! Geez.

I think she made a real good point. Obama used technology to his advantage; you could not go on a website without seeing an Obama link. It was almost like he was a brand.

Then again you can do that when you raise money like Obama did.
