Younger than John McCain

Check out this blog. It has dedicated itself to listing things younger than John McCain.

My Mother is younger than John McCain.
Here's an email I just received from my mother:
"I am younger than John McCain and I get senior citizen discounts, I can't bend, my knees hurt, and I just went on Medicare!"

Hey, that stings, my preferred candidate (Paul) was older than McCain! :p

Seriously, though, I'm not sure how I feel about targeting McCain's age. I don't want him to win because I believe his policies would damage our country. I suspect that there is a good chunk of the American population that likes his policies, but would be swayed against voting for him by the "he's too old to be effective/reliable" argument. So, promoting that line of thinking may end up benefiting our country.

But, I really don't think his age makes him unfit. If Obama and Clinton were both 73 and McCain 45, I'd still vote for either of them over McCain.
