John McCain is going to die. Though the same can be said for most of us--unless the secret to eternal life is found, and even then, biological matter will still likely decay and our bodies will have to be replaced with robots--the difference between the Republican nominee for president and most of us 20-somethings is that McCain is going to die soon.
