While Ted Kennedy and Michelle Obama were rocking the Democratic convention in Denver, John McCain made his 13th appearance with Jay Leno to joke about his age. McCain joked, "You forgot to mention that I warned the people about the British coming," and added, "my Social Security number is eight."

Obama owes America a Certificate of Natural Birth.
With Democrats on the precipice of raising the age issue against John McCain, Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont seemed to cross the line completely, then immediately backtrack, my colleague Ken Vogel reports.
Leahy told Vogel yesterday the media has given McCain a free pass on flubs including mixing up Middle East geography, Shiite and Sunni Muslims, and referring to Russia's relationship Czechoslovakia — a country that hasn't existed for 15 years.
"It was the same way with Ronald Reagan in the last few years he was president," Leahy said, referring to the belief that Reagan experienced early signs of Alzheimer's disease late in his presidency.
The press "let Ronald Regan get away with" slips, Leahy said, though he denied he was suggesting that McCain was experiencing mental decline.
"No, I'm just saying he gets a free ride," Leahy said.

I personally feel that a politicians health is pretty irrelevant.

1.) Just because you're 70 years old doesnt mean you're unqualified to do anything
2.) McCain exhibits no signs of Alzheimers what so ever
3.) This isnt the stance of the democratic party, so do not confuse it as such
I'm so thankful for the Bully Pulpit
But oh so disappointed that it pales in comparison for over all popularity
to the OP
I admire your stand against McCain
but please - for the sake of reasonable debate - don't bash a man for his age
it's no different that the morons on here bashing Obama for his skin color or his religion
