Barack Obama "Uses The Internet Like A Normal Adult"

We know he's a BlackBerry fanboy, an international iPod evangelist, a prolific YouTube vlogger and a general nerd, but now we have a new label for our POTUS: Internet addict.

In 2010, to "use the internet like a normal adult" is to give in to a terrible, emotionless symbiosis from which you can never withdraw, so what's said here - that the president reads blogs, that he spends a lot of his day online, that he's the first president to have an internet connection at his desk - is less interesting that what's left unsaid: Does he laugh at memes? Does he comment? Does he troll?

And as the WaPo's anonymous source so obviously wanted the world to ask, or else he/she would have worded things differently: Porntube or xHamster? [Washington Post via Ed Bott]
