What do Alaska, the Slinky, Plutonium and the AARP have in common?
They are all YOUNGER than John McCain. And while this site is not nearly as mean-spirited as the Facebook group I joined today called "John McCain is a Decrepit Old Turtle," it's a pretty funny site nonetheless. What site is that? Things Younger than McCain.
Seriously, people talk about what a challenge it will be for a bi-racial candidate (frankly, Obama is alwasy referred to as an African-American or black candidate, even though he's bi-racial) to win in November, but McCain will be 72 entering office if he manages to win. That's really, really old.
Is it why McCain keeps getting things wrong, like whether Iran supports Al Qaeda (they don't, though he's said it several times), or whether the constitution prevents or allows for eminent domain (it prevents it, though he stressed the opposite)?
Probably not. He's probably just misinformed, or makes a few misstatements here and there, like anyone else. On the other hand...
