FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:
John McCain has been known to say he's "older than dirt" and has "more scars than Frankenstein."
If he wins, he will be 72 and the oldest president to ever serve a first term. McCain says his age is no big deal, but for purposes of giving the Cafferty File something light to end the week with, it is.
A Democratic operative has started a web site called "Younger than John McCain” Steven Rosenthal presents a short video that lists things younger than the Republican candidate including: FM radio, the Golden Gate Bridge, Coke in a can, Velcro, Pakistan, McDonald's and Burger King... to name a few.
Rosenthal tells the Washington Post, quote: "McCain comes from another time, an old war-horse stuck in the past with an old-world view of things." He says the videos are meant to show in a funny way how "out of touch and clueless he is."
The McCain camp had no comment on the video, which comes just after Congressman John Murtha, a Clinton supporter, said McCain is too old to be president.
With no disrespect intended and knowing John McCain himself has a terrific sense of humor, we ask the following:
What would you include on a list of things that are "younger than John McCain"?
Interested to know which ones made it on air?
Charles from Florida writes:
Jack, The space shuttle fleet is younger than McCain and it's going into retirement soon. Neil Armstrong's footprint on the moon is also younger than McCain and by some accounts the moon, too.
The Iraq war, but not if McCain gets his way.
Dick from Indiana writes:
I am quite offended by this clearly age-related question. Obviously one thing that is younger than John McCain is the lack of decency at CNN and the immaturity of the whippersnappers who write these offensive questions.
Garrick from Clearwater, Florida writes:
Hi Jack, The first on the list is you, followed by jets, the space shuttle, women’s rights, civil rights, color TV, computers, the voting booth, his wife.
Karl from California writes:
Pampers, Depends, Tony the Tiger, the Edsel, Alaska and Hawaii and a good bottle of scotch.
Hi Jack, I think Beethoven is younger than John McCain, I believe he's still “de-composing.”
Mike from St. Petersburg Beach, Florida writes:
Give the guy a break. He was born the same year as Burt Reynolds and Alan Alda who, for whatever reason, don't seem that old.
Joshua from North Carolina writes:
He's older than: The Wizard of Oz, Disney, the People's Republic of China, the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, MTV, and the Internet.
Steve from Barstow, California writes:
All the women in Bill Clinton’s sex scandals.
Jack Cafferty, You're like a hundred million years old. How dare you be ageist to a fellow old person?
