McCain Joins Stevens in Time Machine

28 07 2008

I noted a while back that Ted Stevens’ photo on his website is a little…outdated. I’m guessing by 15 or 20 years. It’s not a crime, but it is (or should be) a little embarrassing. Age denial may be good for 3 or 4 years, but after a while, you just gotta deal with it.

Now, the phenomenon of age reversal has taken an interesting twist. While reporting on the McCain campaign, Fox News used a clip which features John McCain looking downright perky! “Wow”, I thought. “He’s holding up pretty well”. Turns out that Fox dug up 8-year old campaign footage from McCain’s 2000 presidential bid. This takes a giant leap past one man’s vanity, and lands squarely in a very scary place. We know Fox is nothing more than a mouthpiece for the current White House, and that ‘fair and balanced’ is Orwellian double-speak for ‘promoting the conservative agenda’. We’ve also seen Fox many many times “accidentally” put a D instead of an R next to names like Larry Craig. So this cheesy attempt to portray a really old candidate as less really old shouldn’t be surprising. Good for MSNBC for figuring this one out.
