Quick quiz: what do Ken Buck, Scott McAdams, and Bill McNeil have in common?
I've mentioned it in passing a couple of times, and tweeted it once (and it was then retweeted by the Denver Post, although I'm not sure if that means anything; seems to be an auto-retweeter), but isn't it a bit odd that Colorado Senate candidate Ken Buck's date of birth appears to be unlisted? McAdams (the Dem nominee in Alaska), too, although he's relatively more obscure. In both cases, it may simply be that no one has bothered to ask, although for what it's worth no one (including the campaigns) responded to my tweet. Hey, I'm not saying it's up there with crazy stuff people said on the Bill Maher show a dozen years ago, and maybe I just have severely limited search skills, and obviously the only reason I care is because I'm tracking how old the next Senate is going to be...but I am sort of wondering if it's a little odd.
Oh, and if it turns out that they have more in common than just a hidden birthday, I'll remind you: first of all, it's pronounced "EEvelyn."
