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 Peace-time Draft.

The Peace-time Draft is younger than John McCain.

QUESTIONER: If we don’t reenact the draft, I don’t think we’ll have anyone to chase Bin Laden to the gates of hell.

MCCAIN: Ma’am, let me say that I don’t disagree with anything you said.

Now, I’m not saying that I’m entirely against the Draft. We need to have a military and, true patriots aside, it seems like our current one is composed largely of people who have run out of options – and that seems wrong. I am, however, entirely against the Draft if it means a return to the time when children of privilege manage to find a way to circumvent service.

In other words, one for all or none for all.
