Grumpy McSame Knows All The Tricks

So he doesn't need to learn new ones.

McCain aid, Mark Saller: "We have all become familiar with Senator Obama’s new brand of politics. First, you demand civility from your opponent, then you attack him, distort his record and send out surrogates to question his integrity. It is called hypocrisy, and it is the oldest kind of politics there is."

He would know....

Here's the thing for all those who would argue that "playing the age card" is no better than racism or sexism when selecting the next president: BUNK!

Every day John McCain will get a little older, a bit more weary, a toll that saps the life out of everyone who ever took the job will work on debilitating McCain.

Barack Obama ain't getting any blacker, nor is Hillary getting more female for that matter. Indeed, once the numskulls get used to the idea, the racial and/or sexist attitudes will soften. With McCain, his age as a limiting factor on his ability to do the job will grow with each birthday.

No, it's not fair, and hardly a "liberal" attitude. And yes, many people -- including John McCain's mother -- remain vital and productive well into their 90's. But his advanced years are indeed a legitimate consideration on picking him for the job. A far better factor to weigh, in fact, than anyone's association with a wacky pastor, homophobic minister, or voodoo witch doctor for that matter.

However, close association with voodoo economists is quite the other thing.
