Well, I'm not older than McCain...

...but I'm older than
1. Remote-control operated ceiling fans
2. The internet
3. [Heinz] Ketchup in plastic bottles
4. MTV
5. The iPhone
6. Adrien Brody


But enough about me (at least for now). Here's what got me started:

Baseball Crank points out that this beaut was produced by Left-wing, Soros-funded* interest group "America Coming Together", who are too young to notice their patron's 78. Money is ageless.

Hey, it's Chuck Norris time! (Yes. Chuck was all for the Huckster. But the jokes go on.)
John McCain is so old that when he was born, Obama's neighbor and donor William Ayers hadn't tried to kill anyone with a bomb yet.

When John McCain was born, Hamas hadn't yet been founded, nor praised Barack Obama.

John McCain was born in those long ago days when if you went into church, you could count on the pastor saying "God bless America!"
Lone Star Times started it:
John McCain is older than politicized CIA agents distorting a National Intelligence Estimate on Iran's nuclear program because they don't like the President's (i.e., their boss') policies.
While the twenty-somethings don't have much to think about in terms of the issues, McCain is reminding the grown-ups that it's up to the grown-ups, not the government:
My friends, Americans change things. We always have. We don't hide from problems or mistakes or history. We change things and we make history. Hope in America is not based in delusion, but in the faith that everything is possible in America. The time for pandering and false promises is over. It is time for action. It is time for change; the right kind of change; change that trusts in the strength of free people and free markets; change that doesn't return to policies that empower government to make our choices for us, but that works to ensure we have choices to make for ourselves. For we have always trusted Americans to build from the choices they make for themselves, a safer, stronger and more prosperous country than the one they inherited.
Of course, that kind of talk won't appeal to the infantile.

Digg!

Without revealing your age you might want to recosider the ketchup in plastic bottles as I distinctly remember deciding that my younger sister looked much better with a coating of the condiment after I sprayed her from across the table in a restaurant.

"Kowabunga" should be a clue as to how old I was at the time.

Oh!
I don't recall any plastic Heinz ketchup bottles until the 1980s. Clearly I must be having a senior moment :)

How old is Adrien Brody?

Well, didn't we hear for as long as we've lived that "with age comes wisdom"? Dissing McCain because of his age is plain age discrimination to me.

You watch that Rick Astley video on YouTube. Reminisce about the late 80's, in high school.

Now you know how old I am! :-)

I believe AB was born in 1970 or so.
