America's Oldest Living Ex-President Endorses America's Oldest Presidential Candidate
Today the wizened paratrooper and former president George H.W. Bush endorsed John McCain, the Grandfather of Modern Vietnam, in his bid to be President and Grandfather of All America. Poppy Bush stood in a hangar at the glamorous Houston Hobby Airport this morning and croaked out a few words of support for the man whom his son brought to memorably humiliating defeat in the 2000 contest for the Republican presidential nomination.
Speaking of McCain's valorous contributions in the Spanish-American war, the elder Bush said "His character was forged in the crucible of war. His commitment to America is beyond any doubt. But most importantly, he has the right values and experience to guide our nation forward at this historic moment."
He then advised Republicans to stop crabbing about how McCain isn't a true conservative, because back in the day everybody complained about how Ronald Reagan wasn't conservative enough and now REAGAN, LIKE BUSH, HAS A AIRPORT NAMED AFTER HIM.
