But hearing about Senator McCain’s age is getting old (pardon the pun). And here we are – another day, another article. So he’s a septuagenarian. And?? That’s not news, and Mr. Kurtz’s perspective in “Is McCain’s Age Showing? Tongues Wag Over Flubs” is anything but fresh. Several potential reasons are given in the story for McCain’s recent foreign policy gaffes, and yet the one the media gives credence to is his age. If Senator Obama makes a similar mistake – and we all make mistakes – should we say that it’s because he’s not old enough to know better?
