Brack Obama, the Illinois Senator who is trying to become the first black President of the United States, poked a little fun at the age of his opponent, Arizona Senator John McCain. "Every campaign picks a theme song," said the Democrat. "In keeping in line with his age, and his reputation as a boring guy, his ought to be Dead Puppies Aren't Much Fun."
"My opponent is so old, he's probably voted in every election in this country. In fact, I'll bet with his war record that he was a senior military advisor for George Washington."
"Now, I'm not trying to say that the Republican candidate is and old man, but he probably thinks Republican refers to his golfing buddy Plato."
"John McCain probably took the first package of Geritol, wore the first depend undergarment, and got the very first senior citizen discount, when he got his horses shoe'd at Paul Revere's blacksmith shop."
"We know about McCain's years as a POW. Now, was it in Vietnam or the Confederate prison at Andersonville?"
"Now, I'm not going to call my distinguished colleague old, but when he moved to Washington D.C. for his first term in the Senate, it wasn't Mayflower moving and storage that brought him here, it was the Mayflower."
When told of the jokes at his expense, John McCain was slightly upset. "Someone get my my rolodex. Do I still have the number for Nathan Bedford Forrest? Get him and his KKK boys up here and burn a cross in this uppity feller's yard! I guess someone's upset because he missed his nap and prayers to Mecca and no one was there to change is diaper."
It should be noted in his tirade that McCain did use the term "whippersnapper." He also spoke of the hard times of having to walk 5 miles to school (uphill both ways) and used the expressions "in my day" and "these damn kids" more than ten times each.
