A Question of Age and Judgement

Now, I happen to think that making an issue out of McCain's age is problematical. Senior citizens vote more than any other demographic and you don't want to piss them off by making jokes about old people. But, having said that, it is amazing how much McCain sounds like Grampa Simpson in this response to Obama's criticism of McCain's failure to show up to vote on the new G.I. Bill.

There's a reason why public statements tend to be only a few lines long. It's because anything longer starts to sound like a rant regardless of how reasonable it is.
