Bumped and Updated: No wonder John McCain is the favorite of the rich and the hand-licking servants in the Republican party who love serving the interests of the rich.
Asked how many houses he owned, John McCain replied, "I think -- I'll have my staff get to you."
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 Politico in Las Cruces, N.M. "It's condominiums where -- I'll have them get to you."
The correct answer is at least four, located in Arizona, California and Virginia, according to his staff. Newsweek estimated this summer that the couple owns at least seven properties.
Now don't go whining, you Americans who don't own your homes or are facing foreclosure. Just buck up and join the middle-class like the McCains. They have millions in income, but life is so had they can't even keep track of how many houses they own.
Update II: McSame spin-meisters are on the defensive...
"The reality is they have some investment properties and stuff. It's not as if he lives in ten houses. That's just not the case," Rogers said. "The reality is they have four that actually could be considered houses they could use.
GUFAW! The smarmy smart-ass and his pill-popping wife only have four houses they live in - the rest are just investments, my bad!
I guess we'd know that already if the McCains weren't refusing to release their tax returns (see "Cindy McCain's Dirty Little Secrets")

The Rich Lifestyle of John McCain
published August 18, 2008
During Saturday night's forum in Saddleback, Senator John McCain was asked what income level constituted "rich" - and he answered $5 million or more. Other millionaires ($2 million... $3 million,... $4 million...) aren't rich, in McCain's view, and shouldn't be taxed as if they were...
It makes you wonder just how out of touch John McCain is with most of Americans.
So does this video:
McCain's rich wife inherited a fortune made from booze, and then became a drug-addicted pill popper - and high-flying flyboy McCain is flying just as high as she is if he thinks someone making $4 million is just getting by.
And about Cindy's millions -- keep in mind that while Obama (and Clinton for that matter) made a full release of their complete tax returns, John and Cindy McCain have not. I wonder what they are hiding from the American people?
But when you see McCain's lifestyle it's easy to understand just how twisted the McCains' priorities are.
