And - after much ado - presenting McAncient....

It's a McMasterpiece as far as we're concerned.

John J King is the brains (& voice) behind this operation. He was helped by Andrew Roy, & Zac McIntyre (our musical talent) and Brendan Kara (he kept us honest - see here for the facts). Our videographer wants to remain anonymous but he did a great job. Stayed tuned...we've got lots more ideas up our sleeves....including an unplugged-uncut-sagging-all-over version of the song coming soon....

Hi Steve,

I'm an editor at Ulysses Press, an independent book publisher in Berkeley, CA. Have you given any thought to doing a book of things younger than McCain? We'd love to do a project like this. Assuming you could write it ASAP, we could get into bookstores right away (skipping the usual cataloging wait period) to capitalize on all the campaign attention.

Let me know if you're interested.

best,

Hi Steve:

Just learned about this terrific clip. I loved it.

And now I have that extra spring in my step now that I am (comparatively) so very young.

Thanks!

Steve,

I don't have the words to tell you how inspired this video is. Some people can write incredibly trenchant satire; some people can craft a cleverly catchy tune. But to see both as one does with "Younger Than McCain," that's art!

This video will be remembered long after the 2008 election is history. It will be this campaign season's "Where's the Beef?", Reagan's "Morning in America" or the 1964 LBJ "Daisy" ad. (I mean this in a complimentary way in that it is such an effective ad.

Keep up the excellent work. And unlike some of the commercials I mentioned, "Younger Than McCain" is spot-on accurate, too.

Cheers, Ivonne Rovira

In an article on Politico, it was reported that Republicans are convinced that Democrats are running a "crypto-ageist strategy." Democrats, it's argued, are using "code words" to make McCain's very very old age an issue in the campaign.
In some original reporting, 23/6 has cracked the code. The GOP's allegations are revealed and confirmed.
For example, Obama claims, "When it comes to the economy, John McCain and I have a fundamentally different vision of where to take the country." What he MEANS is "John McCain is almost legally blind—that’s what happens to old people."

I thought it might be worth noting that John McCain is older than the late George Carlin.

Steve,

Awesome video!
Don't forget, he's older than Colin Powell. Who retired as secretary of State 3 years ago!OH, and older than Saddam Hussein. Older than Alaska and Hawaii as they were made states in the 50's. Also he's older than the first SUV's as Jeep were the first and founded during WW2. LOL!

One thing McCain knows that you don't and that is that you will be old someday too. And just think how much wiser you will be, how much more life experiences you will have and how much kinder you will be.

Funny video, not to mention catchy.

I hate to break this to you, but Ron Paul is actually a year older than McCain. You wonder why his giant legion of supporters didn't notice that whenever they attacked McCain's age.

As a liberal, I can say this is the least funny thing I have seen in quite a while. Congrats for making the same really obvious joke over and over.

Recently an insurance company nearly wind up....

A bank is nearly bankrupt......

How it affect you? Did you buy insurance? Did you buy mini note or bonds?

They bailout trouble finance company, but they will not bail out your credit card bills……You got no choice, and no point pointing finger but you can prevent similar things from happen again……


Who fault?



The top management of the Public listed company ( belong to "public" ) salary should be tied a portion of it to the shares price ( IPO or ave 5 years ).... so when the shares price drop, it don't just penalise the investors, but those who don't take care of the company.....If this rule is pass on, without any need of further regulation, all industries ( as long as it is public listed ) will be self regulated......because the top management will be concern about their own pay check……


Are you a partisan?

Sign a petition to your favourite president candidate, congress member, House of representative again and ask for their views to comment on this, and what regulations they are going to raise for implementation.....If you agree on my point, please share with many people as possible....
