Let’s just get this out of the way
Now that John McCain is the presumptive Republican nominee, I wish to preemptively clarify something. Yes, his name is very similar to mine, and yes, we are both of Irish ancestry. But no, we are not related. This should be obvious due to the fact that we have different last names.
I know most of you are going “Well, duh” right now, and you’re right. But I’ve been asked about my possible kinship with the Arizona senator numerous times since he gained a national profile, and I just want to nip this in the bud if I can.
