Q: How many houses do you and Mrs. McCain have?Politico (who did the interview) reported it as:
A: I think, uh ... I'll let my staff get to you and tell you about that ...
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said in an interview Wednesday that he was uncertain how many houses he and his wife, Cindy, own.Interestingly, it actually is unclear how many houses he owns -- do you count the two luxury condos combined by remodel as one or two? how about the one ranch with three dwellings? -- but there's nothing in McCain's answer suggesting this thought process. He just said, "I don't know". (I counted six, though others have produced numbers as large as nine.)
"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."
Democrats smell blood. The new theme is that McCain is:
- Out of touch at home.
- Reckless abroad.
Here's yesterday's network news on the matter (hat tip). Ouch!
