Let me help everyone with this:

Over the Phone::

The Secretary: John, seems like we have to implement BLUE

John: But Madam Secretary, BLUE is risky. It could cause the deaths of-

The Secretary: Just do it!

** BLUE of course goes completely cluster fark and dozens die in fiery and sparklie ways **

Congressman: Madam Secretary, did you order BLUE to execute?

Madam Secretary: I don't recall.

Congressman:John, did Madam Secretary order BLUE?

John: Yes.

Congressman:John, do you have proof?

John: Ummm No, but I did talk to her-

Madam Secretary: Congressman, I DO have this email where John is giving the order for BLUE.  In it he says I ordered it? But I have NO idea what he's talking about. Something this big should have a papertrail...unless John was going rogue.

Congressman:  Hmmm...You know, John does look a bit... radical

Rhypskallion: I hate the phone too.  I can type faster than I can talk, and read faster than anyone can type.   How is the phone 'more efficient'?

It's only more efficient if you:

a) can't type
b) can't read and comprehend quickly.

The phone is better than texting when driving a stick shift while packing a one hitter and drinking a beer.

This is the same person that is buying up all the bullets in the US - enough for 20 Iraq wars.  No, I'm not concerned.

If she doesn't do email, she is likely pretty damn computer illiterate.  Reminds me of this Fark blast from the past:

People like this who are not famous end up being the people we hear complaing that nobody hires anyone who is over 50.  Bullshiat.  Nobody wants to hire anyone who is out of touch, gramps.  There are plenty of highly employable old folks out there.  They are the ones who were smart enough to realize pushing a button on a machine might not carry them through their entire career.  But when you are like McCain or Jan Napoleone and spend your entire life working for the government you CAN be employed your whole life with your 1972 skill set.

Digital watches? I still think they're a pretty neat idea.
