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.

Barack Hussein Obama.

Barack Hussein Obama is younger than John McCain.

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling this odd sense of calm right now. Maybe it’s because I read on dailykos about how Dana Bash said that “privately McCain advisers admit winning would be nothing short of a miracle”, or maybe it’s because I just saw on that Nate is giving old man McCain a 1.9% chance to walk away with this thing.

The above notwithstanding – and given that one of the great truths of life is that “no one knows how to lose an election like a Democrat” (the other great truth being “no one knows how to steal an election like a Republican”) – this thing ain’t over yet. So, until the fateful hour when it’s made official finally arrives and the sleazebags in the media (I’m looking at you, CNN) have no choice but to finally let go of the horserace bullshit that has a good part of the country worked up into a lather, let’s all make some calls to GET. OUT. THE. VOTE.

  1. I saw him Saturday night in Springfield, MO and I really felt like it would probably happen. Southern Missouri is known for being mostly Republican, and there were 40,000 people at the rally. Triple that of the Palin rally!

  4. Somehow I didn’t see it coming that the most obvious thing younger than McCain would be posted on the last day…anyhow, I sure wish I could vote tomorrow.

  5. I will be shocked if he doesn’t win, but at the same time I am on edge. I am so ready for tomorrow…..I already get tears in my eyes just thinking about it. Joe, thank you so much for giving us-(and by us I mean the sane people in this country who visit this site and support Obama)- a place to vent our frustrations, fears, anger and most of all a place to let off some steam with a good laugh!

  7. He’s right. We need everybody’s help in order to win tomorrow. If you find yourself with a few free hours tomorrow (or even just one) go tho Obama’s website and find out where they need you and sign up (the link is in the top corner of the blog but here it is again: or just show up at your local office (find it here: If you don’t have an hour or two tomorrow, call in sick and help all day long. We need help driving people to polls, handing out sample ballots, reminding people to vote, administrative help, and everything else.
    Most importantly… VOTE!!!

  9. Well, I won’t be calm, until it’s over. (“Dewey Defeats Truman”)
    Come on guys, elect Obama. If you don’t, the stereotype about you in my country (that you’re all stupid) will be strenghtened.
