If a reporter asks you how many houses you own

... and you say "I'll have my staff get to you".... you might be an elitist.

Just in case you needed yet another reminder that Sen. McCain is too old to be president, I give you this.

In an interview earlier this week, McCain said that he was uncertain how many houses he and his wife own, saying; “I think — I'll have my staff get to you. […] It's condominiums where — I'll have them get to you.”

That’s right… he doesn’t know how many houses he owns.

Seriously, I’m not kidding… the man doesn’t know… granted, he’s got more than most of us who have one, or even none, but to NOT know how many houses one has is sad at best.

The correct answer is, per his staff; at least four (scattered throughout the US Arizona, California and Virginia) even though Newsweek estimated earlier in the year that the couple owns at least seven properties. And the group Progressive Accountability put the number at 10 homes, ranches, condos, and lofts, all-together worth about $13,823,269.

And he calls Obama an elitist?

McCain’s gotten mileage from his campaign surrogates making a big deal about Sen. Obama's house… which isn’t a mansion but cost over a million bucks because it’s in the Chicago city limits… and yet he has more places to hang his hat.

Sooooo Senator..... your lack of knowledge about how many houses you own either shows that you're a senile old coot who is too old to be president, or it shows that YOU are the elitist that has so many houses you can't or don't bother to keep track of how many.

Which is it Mr. McCain?

Inquiring minds want to know… we’ll be waiting for YOUR (not a surrogate) answer.
