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.

God being mentioned in the Pledge of Allegiance.

God being mentioned in the Pledge of Allegiance is younger than John McCain.

While “The Pledge” had been official in the U.S. since 1942 (when John McCain was six) the words “Under God” weren’t added until 1954 (when he was a senior in high school).

Hmm. Interesting. You know what else is interesting? The very carefully vetted (and soon-to-be-loser on that dumb Jeff Foxworthy show) thinks that the “Under God” part came from the Founding Fathers of our Constitution.

This campaign is imploding before our eyes and I’m loving every minute.

Who thinks she’ll step down… ostensibly under the guise of “a daughter needing her mother at a time like this”?

  1. Even if it came from the Constitution… no offense, but, with that logic, you could call Native Americans “merciless Indian Savages” claiming that it was good eneough for the Founding Fathers.

  6. The “merciless Indian Savages” phrase is in the Declaration of Idependence. I’m just sayin’ that if something was good for the Founding Fathers it doesn’t mean it’s good for us (as Palin said) ’cause they lived more than two hundred years ago.

  7. Ah – got it. Thanks.

  8. Wow, even I knew this! I never realised that I was qualified to become VP….. :-)

  9. This blog is freaking hilarious.
    I’m starting to think that all the things here that McCain is older than, are more qualified to be President.
    The Grapes of Wrath, The Pill, and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

  10. Oh, you aren’t. You weren’t Miss Wasillia.

  11. Palin won’t step down until there’s a massive outcry over all of her dirty laundry. Of course, that isn’t going to happen, because the media lets Teflon John McCain and his campaign get away with anything.

    If this were a Democrat, the entire country would be going apeshit.

  12. I think Palin should excuse herself from voting for McCain and herself…after all, it was good enough for the Founding Fathers for women to stay home and not vote…

  15. truthiness shall prevail!

  16. “Palin should excuse herself” Yeah… but she also has a good reason for why Barack Obama shouldn’t be President.

  17. #16 – where’s the logic in that statement? Maybe my coffee hasn’t kicked in yet, but I don’t get it.

    Has anyone else thought of the similarities between dubya’s era of fear & McCarthyism? I mean you had the house of un-american activities, and the patriot act; spying on citizens for communism, & spying for terrorism; rule through fear of the ‘red’ threat, & rule through fear of unnamed terrorist; I’m sure the list could go much further, but I have to wait for caffeine…. As Pansypoo often says…just saying.

  18. #17- I think #16 was pointing out that the Founding Fathers also wouldn’t have let Obama vote due to his race…It was kind of a clumsy way to say that, given that the post Aqquila was responding to was about her not voting, not about excusing herself from being VP, but I’m pretty sure that’s what he/she was getting at.

  19. [...] McCain is woefully out of touch. Is it because he is incredibly old? Maybe. Or maybe he’s choosing to completely ignore reality because [...]
