McThuselah, a play on words from the name of Senator John McCain
and the oldest person whose age is mentioned in the Hebrew Bible, methuselah
. Methuselah lived to 969 years, and the application of the term has become a general synonym for a really, really old living creature.*
This word may appear frequently in newspaper or political blogs.
Some fear, while others look forward to the prospects of a third Bush term under a McThuselah presidency.
