Don’t tell me the Democrats are the party of the future when their presidential ticket in 2016 is shaping up to look like a rerun of ‘The Golden Girls.
We have Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and a slew of bright, young, energetic governors ready to take America into the future. And the other guys? They got Hillary and Joe Biden.
~ Senator Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, at CPAC joking about Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden running for the President in 2016
This morning Mitch McConnell said that if former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ran for President, it would be like a re-run of the Golden Girls. I can't believe it, I have always admired Hillary Clinton for all she has done. Not just for America, but for women worldwide. It's disgusting that Mitch McConnell would resort to these kind of petty attacks.
~ Kentucky Democratic Party Chairman Dan Logsdon
Mitch McConnell making age jokes about Hillary? "Golden Girls"? Great way to win back the women's vote. What a jackass.

Golda Meir was 71 when she became Israeli PM. Hillary will be a younger 69 and the same age as St Ronnie Raygun.

Throat wattle and all.

But you see McConnell is only 40 in Galapagos turtle years.

And with that quip, Mitch zeroes in on one of the last few demographics that the GOP hasn't already managed to drive away. When the old rich white guys die off, the GOP will officially be extinct.

Well, the Golden Girls were a lot more popular that the Republican party.

Mitch McConnell, born February 20, 1942, is exactly 9 months older than Joe Biden and more than five years older than Hillary Rodham Clinton. But, of course, he gets to make jokes about how they're old because he's a conservative white guy.
