McCain: Uhh, I Dunno How Many Houses I Own

Do you know how many houses you own? Ask that of John McCain and he'll say uhh, I dunno:

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said in an interview Wednesday that he was uncertain how many houses he and his wife, Cindy, own.

"I think — I'll have my staff get to you," McCain told Politico in Las Cruces, N.M. "It's condominiums where — I'll have them get to you."
While the little people experience pain at the pump, struggle to pay their medical bills and pray they won't lose their homes, McCain can't even keep track of how many McMansions he and his wife own. Either he's got so many he lost count or he's such a doddering old crank he can't even remember.

Hey John, you own seven houses. Oh, eight even. Excuuuse me. That many and you want the White House, too? Just how much is too much, John?

Remember that he also doesn't know the price of gas, insists no American would be willing to pick lettuce for $50 an hour and thinks that any income below $5 million a year is not rich. Which kinda makes sense if you're John McCain. To a tenured D.C. politician like him who can afford to throw thousands of dollars at the craps table, whose wife is worth hundreds of millions of dollars and spends $273,000 on household help alone, not to mention charging as much as $500,000 to her Amex card in one month, why surely $5 million a year sounds positively puny.

Tsk tsk, sooo out of touch. No wonder he thinks the economy is "fundamentally strong" and the financial hardships we are all experiencing is purely "psychological". Let them eat cake, says John McCain, er, Marie Antoinette.

Here's an apt slogan I saw online somewhere:

John McCain. Reckless abroad. Clueless at home.

I wish I came up with that because boy, it sure fits.
