We are having trouble over here figuring out these newfangled internets. We have, however, posted a letter via Pony Express to the Obama campaign asking if they might enlist the services of Father Pfleger on our behalf to help us in setting up our webcams.

That's the response an unnamed aide to John McCain gave to Politico's Jonathan Martin regarding a speech Barack Obama delivered on Monday. In the speech, Obama seemed to draw a distinction between himself and McCain based on age and relative tech-savvy.
