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.

I had wanted my earlier post to be the last one before the polls closed but I just saw this video and couldn’t resist one more.

Is there any doubt left anymore that this guy is the real deal?

  1. I dunno, ‘fired up’ might be code for some radical, pallin-around-with-terrorists activity! :-P

  2. ‘Palin’ around with terrorists? :o )

    Speaking of which, Sarah Stupid was all too quick to be buddy-buddy with the Prime Minister of Socialist France.

    Granted, it was a couple of slightly less Socialist Canucks.

  3. He was telling that story early in the primaries. I’m glad he brought it back. It’s a good ‘un.

    Fired Up!

  8. I’ve never been in love with a politician before.

  9. Haha! I was actually there at that rally. 100,000 people screaming, “FIRE IT UP” and “READY TO GO” really inspires you.

  10. I heard this story early in the primaries as well. This was way back when no one thought he was going to become the nominee, much less the next President. “Fired up and ready to go!” Became the chant around our campaign office for weeks. I’m so thankful that we have a candidate who brings together people like this.

  11. Hey “Just” a mom- we did it. Boulder County here, and they’re calling CO for Obama.

    Go Colorado!

    This is the second time we’ve gone blue since the Johnson election — we were blue for Clinton once, but only once.

    I’m so happy that we had so many voters out that they COULDN’T steal it.

  12. I worked the polls in MO last night – & am embarrassed to realize that we are one of three states that are still are undecided. But, I’m thrilled to say, it doesn’t matter because OBAMA IS OUR NEW PRESIDENT-ELECT. I didn’t get home until 9:30p.m. (polls closed @7:00p.m.) for one reason because I am the Democratic Election Supervisor, but the main reason was because MO waz FIRED UP for Obama

  13. He is a beautiful human being. I am so happy for the US. I am thrilled that a majority recognized a genuine person and a great leader. All the best for your future, and our future together.
