Oh for christ sake

In an otherwise ok column about how McCain's new attack ads run the risk of making him look petulant this bizarre observation is thrown in:

Obama accuses McCain of engaging in ''old politics'' -- a loaded phrase given that McCain turns 72 this month.
Other words the Obama campaign is forbidden to use "young, new, white, black, skin, hair, up, down, right, left, and so on and so forth" because *all of them might remind voters of some attribute possessed by McCain and that would be bad.
