Old Man McCain

Despite is overly cozy relationship with the media, republican candidate John McCain's age has become a factor in his electability. At 72 years old, he would be the oldest president ever.

In this clip, McCain addresses the concerns and claims that he is "older than Frankenstein".

Here, the kids over at YoungerThanMcCain.com try to name things that are well, younger than John McCain.

And, finally, the whippersnappers over at 236.com make an appeal to voters who are somehow older than McCain.

Obama's "More Perfect Union" Speech

Delivered on March 18th, at the Philadelphia Constitution Center. It's just over 37 minutes long and worth every single second. If you haven't watched it yet, consider it mandatory viewing.

It is probably one of the most important and beautiful speeches in recent memory, on race, political divisiveness and broader issues Americans face today. With this single speech, Barack Obama has dwarfed all competition and laid the groundwork for a brighter, more united future.

All I can say in response is "Hello, Mr, President!"
