Many right-wingers consistently criticize Obama for being elitist and out-of-touch with the average American. Well, apparently, John McCain owns so many houses he has lost count. Unbelievable!
When asked on Wednesday in an interview with the Politico newspaper, McCain was asked how many houses he owns with his wife, a wealthy heiress to a beer distributorship. His fumbling response? Uh – uh – uh (my words). “I think — I’ll have my staff get to you”.
Holy bonkers, Batman! The man has so many houses he doesn’t remember? Talk about being out-of-touch and elitist. I doubt his memory lapse was due this time to anything other than simply being confused about how many he owns by himself, with his wife, or how many she owns.
According to Arizona public records, Cindy McCain owns plenty of real property – most of it held in a trust aptly named the “Cindy Hensley McCain Family Trust” or some combination thereof. John McCain owns very little in his own name. They signed a prenuptial agreement prior to their marriage and have generally kept their finances separate.

McCain not only doesn’t know how many houses he owns, he also believes that being rich starts at $5,000,000 – that’s five million dollars. He should know; he and his wife are worth millions above that figure. Perhaps McCain and his crowd should be careful about calling Obama elitist. In a contest, McCain wins hands down or should we say “high rises” up?
