News, but not the serious kind
Does Obama have your back?
Blog Guy, you know a lot of inside Washington stuff. I hear President Obama is very savvy as far as technology is concerned.
Not really. He tends to prefer doing backberry messages, which are very low-tech.
Backberry? You mean BLACKBERRY, right?
No, I mean backberry. Look at this photo. He writes a note on the back of his personal assistant, who then finds the person who’s supposed to get it, and turns his back so they can read it.
Wait a minute. I’m sure I’ve read that Obama has a BlackBerry and uses it a lot.
No, not since his unfortunate “accident.”
It seems Obama likes to keep a private list called “Folks My Death Panel Should Visit Right Away.” But as he was climbing the steps to Air Force One he dropped his BlackBerry, and it landed on the SEND button.
Ouch! That’s very unfortunate.
I’ll say it is. Excuse me, there’s a knock at my door….
