John McCain’s House Party

22 Aug

Do you know how many homes you own?  If you do, you are more aware of your surroundings than Republican Presidential candidate John McCain.  When asked by Politico.com how many houses he owned, McCain replied:

 “I think — I’ll have my staff get to you.  It’s condominiums where — I’ll have them get to you.”

According to Politico, the correct number was “at least four” that they apparently sometimes reside in, although further investigation found that the McCain’s own up to eight when including investment properties.  It’s easy to see why the old guy got confused.  Apparently Senator and Mrs.  Blutarsky  McCain acquire houses and condos the way other people collect hummels, baseball cards, or cigar store Indians.  

This does explain much of McCain’s Mad Magazine economic policy:  “What, me worry?”  When you can buy property at will with your wife’s Budweiser money, there’s no need to lose sleep over a recessing economy or mortgage crisis.  Even in the worst of times, people still need to drink beer.  Although Cindy McCain is no Theresa Heinz Kerry (These politicians might want to keep a list of The Hangover’s Songs for your Rich Girlfriend or Wife handy), for John McCain to portray himself as a man of the people is to promote a great falsehood.  But hey, that’s politics, and it has been proven time and time again that the American people will believe anything if they hear it often enough.

It’s time for Americans to show John McCain some compassion and understanding.  If the White House were added to his list of properties, it would probably only further confuse the man.   Give John McCain the break he deserves and vote for Obama.

    Quick! Name the last ‘poor’ president! Hhhhmmm. I can’t think of 1 either…

    Perhaps Politico should have asked ‘For how many years have you served your country selflessly, with distinction and honor?’
    Or perhaps, ‘Exactly how many times were your arms broken after you refused the offer to leave that vietnamese prison camp ahead of your fellow prisoners?’
    Or perhaps, ‘What led you to buck conventional wisdom, and political correctnes, and propose the troop surge which turned defeat into victory?’
    And my favorite ‘Your opponent has gained every political office by having all opponents removed from the ballot by techinicality, essentially running un-opposed. How many elections have you actually WON as compared to your opponent?’
