Happy 72nd Birthday, Senator John McCain!

by jhwygirl

It was news when Obama’s daughter turned 10 back on July 4th, in Butte – but it seems Republican Presidential candidate John McCain is trying to deflect any stories about his 72nd birthday by announcing Governor Sarah Palin as his Vice Presidential pick.

Now, why would Republicans try and ignore their chosen one’s birthday? Shouldn’t they be grabbing up all that feel-good press? Seems cruel to me. You’d think there’d be a big old (no pun intended) cake…with 72 candles…and silly hats and a birthday song. Right?

Maybe it’s something they’re gonna do behind closed doors.

  1. To Consonant Girl: You are one of “Twenty-four Characters Who Help Make Missoula Tick” as compiled by the Independent. Congrats!

    Oh, and Happy Birthday John! Let’s put politics aside and all drink a pint to his health tonight (because he looks like he’s gonna nead it).

  2. Thanks Frank – yeah – me and Jag…a pretty exclusive list there… ;-)

    I’ll drink that pint with you, but we better make it early. Don’t want to keep John up past his bedtime….

    Well, he had such an unfortunate experience with his birthday not too long ago–a split screen on CNN with John & Bushiepoo & a honkin’ big birthday cake on one side, and Katrina slamming New Orleans on the other side–that perhaps he decided to dial the jocularity down a bit.

    Although, it doesn’t get much more hilarious than picking Sarah Palin for his veep.

    Happy (un) birthday, old white dude.
