If you are (or are planning to be) in American politics, you need an angle to grab the people attention right? Sure. So lets see… some talk about health care, some about taxes, educational funding, poor economic times, funding wars, Iraq….what’s left that you could use as the pillar to your campaign, or future campaign? The Apple iPad!

Yes, in a complete public failure of sanity, Illinois Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. decided to blame the popularity of the Apple iPad for job loss in America which is affecting Publishers, booksellers, bookstores, etc all the while supporting China’s ecomony rather than the US economy. You know, he may have a little bit of a point that the technology may be destroying some areas of the media industry, but to blame the iPad solely for it is…well…over the top shall we say. We’ll leave it at that and let you decide after watching the video below…it’s a gooder.
