Now, don't get me wrong, McCain's age is a legitimate concern. He's 71. That fact has me very, very interested in his choice of a running mate. But I think that its a bit out of place for 68-year-old Harry Reid to be the one playing the age card for the Democrats.
Maybe Reid is the only Democrat who doesn't remember what happened when folks questioned Ronald Reagan's ability to serve at the age of 73.
In his comments, Reid compared John McCain's (and most Republicans') call for more domestic oil drilling to a snake-oil sales pitch. Reid thinks that "the simple fact is that the promise of more oil isn't part of the solution, it's part of the problem."
No, Senator Reid, the simple fact is that the more oil America gets for itself by drilling within our own territory the less oil we will need to import. Another simple fact is that the more oil we have, the lower the price will be. The laws of supply and demand aren't snake oil.
