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.

TITLE LXII, Chapter 646-A of New Hampshire State Law.

Title LXII, Chapter 646-A of New Hampshire State Law is younger than John McCain.

The U.S. Flag Code – which sets guidelines “for all handling and display of the Stars and Stripes” – is also younger than John McCain. However, since the code dictates that penalties are left to the States, let’s turn it over to the great state of New Hampshire:

“It shall be unlawful to knowingly desecrate (“Desecration” meaning the act of diverting from a sacred purpose or use to which a flag has been devoted by another individual or group of individuals. The act of desecration shall include burning, defacing, mutilating, destroying or trampling upon the flag.) a flag of the United States while it is properly displayed… (or) while it is the property of another.”

The above photograph depicts a flag John McCain autographed for a supporter at a January rally in Keene, N.H.

  1. To be fair, Lawrence v. Texas (also younger than McCain) overturned the flag desecration ban.

  3. I think he means Texas v Johnson. Either way it should be covered by our first amendment rights!

  4. Looks like John McCain loves our flag as much as he loves NAFTA.

  5. That flag was made in China, so it doesn’t count.
