The Obama campaign kerfuffle – a clear attempt to insert politics of envy in the picture – about McCain hesitating to answer how many houses does he own has backfired.
The truth is that McCain isn’t out of touch with “ordinary people” because he’s rich, he’s out of touch with his own domestic arrangements because he cares little about material things, and for many years has devoted his extraordinary energies not to enjoying his wife’s money, but to serving the American people. Given the number of nights he’s spent in hotels or on military bases over the last few years, it’s no wonder he hasn’t seen much of his wife’s condos.
As Anthony Trollope said, “being the husband of a rich woman is not the same as being a rich man”, especially when you don’t own a house, and the eight houses your family owns are owned by your wife, her dependent children and the trusts and companies they control.

Now, of all the vastly ignorant statements the junior senator from Illinois has come out with, that one takes the cake, at least for now. China’s Communists have used the excuse of the Olympic games to level the medieval city built by the great Ming emperor.
In today’s podcast at 11AM Eastern we’ll be talking about those houses, and the Obama-Ayers connection. Don’t miss it!
