Who Knew He was a Techno Wizard

This is going from ridiculous to just plain stupid.. Who knew that the high tech wizard John McCain actually invented the BlackBerry. Here I am using it everyday and all this time I thought Research In Motion, a Canadian company, invented the thing. Boy am I embarrassed.
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."
The McSame people are seriously unhinged.

UPDATE: via AmericaBlog--Now it seems that McCain has claimed to have invented cell phones and WiFi as well.
Here are the words straight from his lying mouth.:
I am the former chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation. The Committee plays a major role in the development of technology policy, specifically any legislation affecting communications services, the Internet, cable television and other technologies. Under my guiding hand, Congress developed a wireless spectrum policy that spurred the rapid rise of mobile phones and Wi-Fi technology that enables Americans to surf the web while sitting at a coffee shop, airport lounge, or public park.
