Riddle me this ...

Q. What do FM radio, McDonald's, Indonesia and plutonium have in common?

A. They're all younger than McCain.

John S. McCain, the GOP presidential nominee-to-be, was born on Aug. 29, 1936. At 71, he's ... "kinda old," according to this YouTube video.

Some of the other things that are, according to the video, YoungerThanMcCain:

    • The Golden Gate Bridge;
    • The Lincoln Tunnel;
    • Burger King;
    • Coke in a can;
    • Indonesia;
    • Pakistan;
    • Iceland;
    • Velcro;
    • Nylon;
    • Color TV, and ...
    • "Dick ... Freakin' ... Cheney."
McCain's campaign will spin his age as an asset, especially if he ends up running against Barack Obama. With age comes experience, and at 46, Obama has little of either. But his opponent, whoever it is, will assert -- either overtly, as U.S. Rep. John Murtha did recently, or covertly -- that McCain is just too old for the job.

Agism, racism, sexism ... this presidential race has it all!
