If you convert the date into a string of numbers:

Tue, 29 May 2001 22:37:32

That creates a sortable value that should work.  Just make sure that you
always have 4 digits for the year and 2 for the month, day, hours, minutes
and seconds - basically always the same number of characters for each time
representation.  Otherwise you will not get a proper sort, ie. dec 29 1980
would be a larger number then may 29 2001 (19,801,229 to 2,001,529 vs.
19,801,229 to 20,010,529).
