Happy 72nd Birthday!

Seventy-two years ago today, on August 29, 1936, in the midst of the Great Depression, just four years after the TV had been invented and five years before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Senator John McCain was born.

Senator McCain, I may be opposing you and your agenda for turning America back to the 19th century, but I am not without class. I did get you this lovely gift that I am sure will come in handy today.

Please leave your birthday message for John McCain here!

When you've got your own teeth, you've got everything, Senator McCain. Happy birthday!

Who needs teeth when you have seven houses! I'd rather have seven houses than seven teeth....but I'm from WV. ;)

You're from West Virginia? Really? I have spent incredible amounts of time all across the state from Elkton to Ripley, from Jefferson County to Mingo County. Where are you from, Andrew?

I grew up in the northern panhandle, in Brooke County.

Smack dab between Pennsylvania and Ohio! I've read that when West Virginia was part of Virginia, slavery in the northern panhandle was essentially a voluntary condition because it was so simple to get to a free state.
