Rock the vote

Has McCain had his chips? After watching Recount last night, I’m worried this “foregone conclusion” might be a squeaker. Get the vote out, my Yankee readers.

Some sage but slightly ageist words of Chris Rockian wisdom to muse on today, as them ol’ American elections get underway.

“John McCain…72 years old. He was too old 10 years ago. 72! He’s so old, he used to own Sydney Poitier. C’mon man I don’t need a president with a bucket list. 72 years old, my god, how many 72 year old people did you see today…just doing shit? My God! John McCain, how you gonna make decisions about the future when you ain’t gonna be here? He’s old! The motherfucker’s too old.

When you die at 72, no matter what you die of it’s natural causes. Even if you get hit by a truck it’s natural causes…cause if you was younger you would have got out the way. You know you got a real choice…Barack or McCain. McCain just got that old story. This motherfucker been telling the same story for 40 fucking years. He a war hero. He a war hero. He a war hero that got captured. There’s a lot of guys in jail that got captured. Shit…fuck that. I don’t want to vote for nobody that got captured. I want to vote for the motherfucker that got away.”

A multi-relevant tune today, the theme from Heaven Can Wait (which was remade as Down To Earth with Chris Rock in 2001) by Dave Grusin, who also scored Recount.
