John McCain: what did he say about me!?
Democratic nominee, Barack Obama, is being called too young and Republican, John McCain, is being called too old. Various outlets are debating the pros and cons of the nominees’ respective ages.
If an individual is intelligent and competent, their age, whether it be 40 or 70, should not be a factor.
Barack Obama and his wife Michelle
Former presidential nominee senator John Kerry got into a verbal fight with John McCain over the age issue. John Kerry deems McCain too old and “confused.”
What the nation needs in the next president is a peaceful, law abiding, intelligent thinker that can pass a CAT scan, which I am afraid the current incumbent might not be able to do:
John McCain attacks John Kerry ‘confused’ gibe as slur on his age
John McCain faced further questions about his age yesterday after John Kerry, the Democrats’ 2004 presidential nominee, described the 71-year-old Republican as “confused” over Iraq.
“I’m obviously disappointed in a comment like that,” Mr McCain said after a clash between his presidential campaign and that of Barack Obama over remarks that the Republican made about US troop levels in Iraq.
Is McCain too old? Is Obama too young?
Megan McArdle says John McCain’s biggest problem isn’t age or health, but the fact that he’s a Republican. Ezra Klein’s response will appear below shortly.
Vast Left Wing Conspiracy
Remember years ago Hillary said there is a vast right wing conspiracy trying to crush her husband. Now Bill Clinton is implying there is a vast left wing conspiracy launching a cover up to knock Hillary out of the election in favor of Obama.
I thought cover ups only worked when you are winning or ahead – and Hillary’s not winning by any accepted criteria to determine the nominee.
Left wing conspiracy, right wing conspiracy – keep it up and you guys will have a whole chicken.

“’Oh, this is so terrible: The people they want her. Oh, this is so terrible: She is winning the general election, and he is not. Oh my goodness, we have to cover this up.'”
