Things younger than Republican Presidential candidate (oh, and did I forget to mention war hero?) John McCain

Am I being “age-ist”? Maybe. But maybe not. The world is a pretty complicated place right now and I’m thinking that it’s not such a great time to elect our oldest President ever. So sue me.

The Microwave Oven.

The Microwave Oven is younger than John McCain.

John McCain might know this invention better by what it was called when he was a kid – “The Magic Cooking Box that you can’t look at directly or else you’ll go blind”.

(Thanks to Aqquila for the tip!)

Three questions for bloggers…

What are tags? Why do I need them? And will using them help with search ranking?

Thanks.

It’s as if McCain himself reads this blog and sets me up with the ideal photos.

Caption writing contest, anyone?

(Thanks to Eddo for the heads-up!)

Not to be outdone by Obama’s Berlin speech, McCain speaks at Schmidt’s Sausage Haus und Restaurant.

No, seriously. He did. This isn’t something from The Onion.

The Pill.

The Pill is younger than John McCain.

According to WebMD, the Searle drug company received FDA approval for Enovid – the first birth control pill – in 1960…. about 24 years after McCain was born and about a year before Obama was born.

People often squirm when they learn that they realize that they forgot to use birth control. Want to see someone squirm even more? Watch McCain’s reaction when confronted about the fact that insurance companies cover Viagra but he voted against requiring them to cover birth control.

I particularly like the parts where he says “I certainly don’t want to discuss this issue” and “I, I, I don’t know what I….” – not to mention the pregnant pause (pun intended) when asked for his opinion on the subject.

I don’t care what John McCain and the conservative press says about the media being biased and having a “love affair” with Barack Obama.

There’s no way McCain draws this crowd.

The CIA.

The CIA is younger than John McCain.

Want to have hours – or days – of fun? Read the “Family Jewels”, a 702 page collection of CIA misdeeds that was released last June (as a result of a Freedom of Information Act request filed 15 years earlier).

Some highlights include a document discussing tracking John Lennon on allegations of funding anti-war activists, a request by Watergate burglar and former CIA operative E. Howard Hunt for a lock picker, and the plan to poison the leader of the Congo. (The country. The dance is spelled with an “a”.)

Bobby Jindal.

Bobby Jindal is younger than John McCain.

Rumor has it that old man McCain will be naming his running mate this week and much of the smart money is on Bobby Jindal, the 37 year old first-term governor of Louisiana… which pretty blows McCain’s arguments about Obama and his youthful inexperience right out the window.

I’ve yet to do an exhaustive search on Mr. Jindal but here are three interesting things I’ve turned up so far:

1. His real first name is Piyush. While that makes absolutely no difference to me, I’m wondering if all the whackjobs on the right (yes, I’m talking to you Ann Coulter – you freaking lunatic) are going to be as eager to refer to him by his given first name as they are to refer to Barack Obama by his middle name.

2. He chose the name “Bobby” after watching episodes of “The Brady Bunch”. OK, maybe that was cute then… but you’re a grown-ass man now.

3. He recently signed into law a bill that authorizes the castration of convicted sex offenders – despite the fact that it’s unconstitutional.

More to come…

UPDATE: Just read on cnn.com that Jindal told Fox “News” that “I’m not going to be the vice presidential nominee or vice president.”

Who’s next?

If enough people see this video, McCain is finished.

This nine and a half minute video, taken from jedreport.com, is truly staggering. It shows McCain’s long record of passionate support for both President Bush and the Iraq war – despite his recent claims of being its “greatest critic” – and it shows how deeply committed he is to maintaining the status quo regardless of the will of America or Iraq.

Please watch… and forward like crazy.

Playboy Magazine.

Playboy Magazine is younger than John McCain.

Playboy Magazine debuted in 1953. John McCain was born in 1936. So, by my math, that puts him at 17 years old when the first issue hit the stands… damn near the perfect age. I’m guessing he – along with his contemporaries Vaclav Havel, Silvio Berlusconi, James Dobson (the conservative wingnut), and Roger Miller (the king of the road) – pretty much exploded. (Al Goldstein, on the other hand, saw his future.)

I really don’t understand Playboy – I mean, it’s 2008… is anyone actually buying this magazine? There are hotter photos in the Newport News catalog, my eight year old second cousin tells funnier jokes, and I could give a crap what Don Rickles and William H. Macy are each up to these days. Much like McCain, the magazine is a dinosaur – headed for extinction thanks in large part to the Internet.

And don’t even get me started about “Hef”. Put some clothes on, stop pretending that the Viagra still works, and stop kidding yourself that these girls actually like you.

I added a “Rock the Vote” link to the bottom of the sidebar.


I can’t imagine that there are a lot of unregistered voters visiting this site but, at Rock The Vote’s request, I put up their link anyway. It’ll be pretty cool to be able to report back and say that the site was able to sign up a whole bunch of new voters… so register away.

Psst – Iraq and Pakistan don’t share a border.

Think about the field day Fox “News” would have if Obama made this mistake… it would feed right into the misinformation campaign they’ve got going and they would run this clip constantly.

Please share.

Is Barack Obama a Muslim?

Frozen Waffles.

Frozen Waffles are younger than John McCain.

I came across the above image when doing a search for “frozen waffles” (which were first introduced in grocery stores in 1953) and, even though the ad shown isn’t for waffles – and “Aunt Jemima” is sadly older than John McCain – I’m posting it because I think it’s inspiring that the same country that can produce something as offensive (by modern day standards) as this is actually a hare’s breath away from electing an African-American president.

Anyway, where was I? Oh right, waffles. Waffling. Changing one’s position.

Take it away, YouTube…. (By the way, did you know that it’s Barack Obama’s fault that gas is $4.50 a gallon? Neither did I.)

Now…

and then…

We have got to keep holding this guy’s feet to the fire. Spread the word. And pass the syrup.
