McCain Draws Blank on Number of Homes Owned


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.”

As the Carpetbagger Report put it:
It’s one thing to be so extraordinarily wealthy that you own multiple homes.

It’s another to be so extraordinarily wealthy that you can’t even remember how many homes you own.

Nice work if you can get it.

Is this an issue about wealth or a red flag about memory and age? Keeping Suni and Shia straight only involves the number '2'. BTW, RollingStone had a sidebar from the press bus on the McCain campaign that he is only doing one event a day. I am surprised that hasn't been a bigger issue as we all know how demanding the job of President is.

3:00 AM phone call? What about the 3:00 PM phone call!
