This morning, a high school student challenged Sen. John McCain about his age, causing McCain to jokingly refer to the student as “a little jerk.” The troubles for McCain didn’t end there. Another student pressed him with regards to his stance on gay marriage. Here’s the exchange:
Student: “Do you support civil unions or gay marriage?”
McCain: “I do not. I think that they impinge on the status and the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman.”
Student: “So you believe in taking away someone’s rights because you believe it’s wrong?”
McCain: “I wouldn’t put that interpretation on my position, but I understand yours.” […]
Student: “I came here looking to see a leader. I don’t.”
Crazy old bastard ain't foolin' the younguns.
Good on 'em.
