I mean, Joe Biden is in his 60's and I have no problem with him being on Obama's ticket, so how can I be ageist?

    So cancer survivors should be discriminated against in the workplace...good luck with that.......

    Then what is the difference between Biden's age and McCain's age?...if you have an issue with one, then you SHOULD have an issue with an other....unless you are so sure to vote because of race that you would vote for ANYONE Obama picked.....

    I think it's health or perceived health rather than age. And if McCain had chosen someone with experience for the position of VP, his health might never even have been brought up.

    Considering that I have relatives who are cancer survivors don't make that assumption.

    Biden is 66, and McCain is 72. That speaks for itself. Biden is one year past the retirement age, and McCain is seven years past the retirement age, and has had major health issues. Now, if I was saying that McCain couldn't do the job because he's 72, then you'd have a point. Age is just a number, but when you factor in other issues such as health it becomes important.

    But, once again, you're turning this debate into things that have nothing to do with the election. So, let me ask you, why are you voting for McCain?

    ....who said I was?......I just don't favor standing by and allowing ageism to be assumed to be based on fact when it is all based on the same ignorant fears as racism is.....

    You did when you implied that I was saying cancer survivors should be discriminated in the workplace.

    And you can think what you want, but people being concerned about a 72 year-old-man, with past health issues, being president isn't ageist, but a legitimate concern. Hell, McCain could be 42, with the same health issues, and it would be a legitimate concern.

    I mean, I could say that Obama is unnaturally skinny and has underlying issues with anorexia which is a mental disorder.....

    I just think in light of the fact that McCain is reaching the average male life expectancy, has had a history of cancer, and who had a father die of heart disease at 70 (which he doesn't mention, although his mother's advanced age is), the odds are good that he will either die in office or his health or mental state will reach a point where he can no longer perform his duties. Enter Palin. A lot of people's worst nightmare. She's the dealbreaker. She's the real reason people are talking about McCain's age and health. If he had selected a competent non-radical conservative as his "backup", I don't think it would be as much an issue.

    If you're trying to prove a point you're failing miserably at it.

    I agree with Cynic on this...

    McCain's age was a weapon against him long before anyone knew Palin would be his running mate...

    Search the threads here and it's all there in black and white...for months before Palin popped into it.......





    if the headline read "No Country For Black Men" people would be berserk....but it's just ageism, so it's cool
    It's no longer a dog whistle, it's a fucking trombone

    Here's what I find so interesting about these cries of 'ageism' against poor John McCain. Wasn't it McCain that kept saying that Obama was 'too young' to be president? So, wouldn't that be ageism, too? Or is it only ageism when it's directed at McCain?

    cynic's arguments are just willfully ignoring reality. The odds that a 72-year old with serious past health issues will die in the next several years is much, much, MUCH higher than a 40- or 50-something year old's odds. It's not ageism. It's FACT. Then throw in his equating age to race, and then randomly throwing out anorexia in connection with Obama --- rather hard to take it seriously, no?
