John McCain Does Not Know How Many Baronial Estates He Has
In 2004 all the Republicans hated the Democratic ex-Navy plutocrat married to an insanely wealthy (and just insane) woman. But now that it is 2008, all the Democrats hate the Republican ex-Navy plutocrat married to an insanely wealthy, insane woman. How awful is Fat Cat John McCain? So awful that he literally hasno ideahow many homes "he" owns.
Maybe like a half-dozen or so?
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 us in Las Cruces, N.M. "It's condominiums where - I'll have them get to you."
The correct answer is at least four, located in Arizona, California and Virginia, according to his staff. Newsweek estimated this summer that the couple owns at least seven properties.
This is why everybody on John McCain's staff has quit, twice: because whenever he is asked a question that cannot be answered with "War is hell, and that's why I have such a raging boner for War," he punts the question to his poor beleaguered staff, who have to figure out how to answer the question in a way that does not reveal their boss is senile or an asshole.
