So I'm asking ya...


If you saw John McCain in your rear view mirror, wouldn't you drive more defensively? And if you wouldn't particularly enjoy sharing the road with one of his age and more importantly, temperament, why would you want him to run the country?

    A glance in the rearview showed a shriveled old man in a huge pair of black wrap around sunglasses topped with a tuft of white hair. Knarled knuckles gripped the steering wheel. The right signal blinked continuously on the silver blue Buick. I stepped on the gas and left a good distance between us.

  2. Hey! If you don't like the way he's driving- get off the sidewalk!!!

    Furthermore-- If you can't pronounce *nuclear*..... you should be no where near.

  3. I live in a small village that has become a retirement haven. The hat is TOTALLY accurate, the old guys all think they look cool wearing one of those behind the wheel. Funny, you never see them wearing them on the street, only when they're driving. And yes, they're always in Buicks and Oldsmobiles. But no, not in the rear view mirror. They're always in front of you on the highway, doing 40 in a 60 zone.

  9. I just left a comment somewhere that compared the McCain campaign to bumper cars so I guess my answer is an emphatic NO.

  10. there's a rather disturbing attack here on the aged. i wouldn't want to try for a time trial for NASCAR, but at 73 i don't fit any of those sterotypes you guys are putting out, nor do any of my contemporaries. course, i don't live in some retirement community, and never been to one, so maybe i don't know what the hell i'm talking about when it comes to the world at large. i do wear a baseball cap much of the time, but that's to hide my scraggly hair, which i'm generally too cheap and lazy to have cut.

  11. I hear you James. My parents are both in McCain's age range, though, and neither of them have the audacity to run for President without releasing their medical records to full public scrutiny. If they did they would not be electable, period.

    He also had a tremendous responsibility at his AGE to select as his running mate, someone who can be President of the United States immediately with no concern on the part of the public for that person's readiness or intelligence. He failed to meet that responsibility, and instead was once again dazzled by a young beauty queen.

    I AM attacking McCain on the age thing for those reasons.

  12. i'm familiar w/your father's age and his wondrous capabilities, and i'm sure you meant no disrespect -- what troubled me was all the generalizations that linked up to your mccain indictment. i'm for obama, but i would never run for public office. at my age (and mccain's) it's just too much pressure. he should never have mounted a campaign. we must remember, however, that mccain was crashing planes while he was still in his twenties and thirties. age adds to his incompetence, but isn't the only reflection of it.

    i hear you too, blue. and my morning coffee would not be the same without a visit to your blog.

I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
