Incompetence has been given as one reason why John McCain didn’t win last month. You may or may not agree with that but the latest oops coming from what remains of the McCain campaign isn’t helping that perception much after one of an east coast campaign office’s fire sale of their remaining assets.
The hottest item? Blackberry phones at $20 a piece. There were only 10 left. All of the batteries had died. There were no chargers for sale. But people were snatching them up. So, we bought a couple.
And ended up with a lot more than we bargained for.
When we charged them up in the newsroom, we found one of the $20 Blackberry phones contained more than 50 phone numbers for people connected with the McCain-Palin campaign, as well as hundreds of emails from early September until a few days after election night.
