Only non-elitists have trouble keeping track of all their multi-million dollar houses.
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."
Is McCain's memory so shot that he genuinely can't remember? Hell, a parking lot he owns is worth four times more than the average American home. Does he have so many that it's unimportant for him to even keep track? Whatever the reason, millions of Americans are at risk of losing their one and only home, and a new Obama ad is quick to point this out.
UPDATE: (Nicole) McCains Bought Second Beach Condo At Around Time McCain Said Struggling Homeowners Needed To Skip Vacations...but will McCain's Media report it? How about one of his unmemorable homes being featured in Architectural Digest?
UPDATE 2: Have they no shame? The McCain campaign is in full damage control mode, and have resorted to -- you guessed it! -- playing the POW card.
Speaking to the Washington Post, aide Brian Rogers, in full damage-control mode, acknowledged that his boss had "some investment properties and stuff," but added: "This is a guy who lived in one house for five and a half years -- in prison."
Wow. They played this card after McCain was caught in the "Cone of Silence" lie. It appears that we are going to see this strategy employed every time the McCain feels he needs to kill a story quickly. It can't possibly work every time, can it?
