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.

“Oh, by the way, that whole ‘gook’ thing? Yeah, I was totally kidding. But, if it’s all the same to you, I’d still rather that you didn’t touch me.”

Buy the book: "72 Things Younger Than John McCain"

  2. I think the gook thing is overrated. My dad experienced the war in my native Holland, and for him there were Germans and Krauts. Nice German people were Germans, those above a certain age and with a certain attitude were Krauts (we use the word ‘Moffen’ for those). I wouldn’t dream of calling my late father a bigot. I can relate to McCain’s gooks.
    That’s just my honest opinion, and I do prefer Obama. Like by far most Europeans do.

  3. with all due respect, i think one needs to look at the context of the remark. mccain clearly made his comment coming from a place of hatred for his captors. not that i blame him necessarily but, then again, i’m not running for president.

  4. I think a better headline would be, “Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour?” :P

  6. Actually, the video is even funnier and The Daily Show skewered it so well. I looked on youtube and no one has uploaded it yet.
