Here's the transcript a bunch of people have been talking about:

HOST
I’m curious, have you ever googled anybody? Do you use Google?
BUSH
Occasionally. One of the things I’ve used on the Google is to pull up maps. It’s very interesting to see — I’ve forgot the name of the program — but you get the satellite, and you can — like, I kinda like to look at the ranch. It remind me of where I wanna be sometimes.

Of course, I really don't expect much better than that from any politician these days. About the only politicians I know of who are in the least tech-savvy are (possibly) Jesse Ventura, Howard Dean, and Pete Ashdown.

But, it's still impressively stupid.

My favorite response though was this one:

"How inconsiderate! Now we'll have to hear this a jillion times just like that thing about the tubes."
--Paul Boutin

I found it at a CNet article.

That's just as classic as the Conversation between Bush and Hume regarding the ipod.

Further proof they should take their ignorant hands off of our technology.

Is the Google on the internets? I think I've heard of it.
