The Presidential race has gotten to the all-important issue of who lives in what house and how many. Exciting! Much better than debating foreign policy or energy independence.
Looks like McCain can’t remember how many houses he, or rather, his multi-millionaire wife, owns. We’re told it is seven.
Cue the ominous Democrat attack ad.
Although it is curious the D’s are choosing to go for the he’s-too-rich angle as opposed to the senior moment approach.
Not to worry. Obama gets it right back from McCain’s camp.
“Does a guy who made more than $4 million last year, just got back from vacation on a private beach in Hawaii and bought his own million-dollar mansion with the help of a convicted felon really want to get into a debate about houses?”
Rather than talking about McCain’s luxury homes or Obama’s mansion, it is surprising no one has thought to staple onto this story the disturbing revelation about the house, or rather hut, Obama’s younger half-brother lives in.
This is kind of a problem for the Democratic nominee. If it were any other politician, the word “scandal” would be attached to 24-7 round-the-clock news coverage replete with scolding anchormen and histrionic talking heads shouting on cable news.
“If anyone says something about my surname, I say we are not related. I am ashamed."
"I live here on less than a dollar a month. I live like a recluse, no-one knows I exist”.
The guy could be a fake. Or the guy could be a bum. Maybe Obama’s half-brother deserves to be living in a slum where people get hacked to death with machetes, police shoot suspects on sight and he has to fight with his bare fists to survive.
Barack Obama needs to sort this out, pronto, before razzing his opponent over the number of homes (Cindy McCain) owns. Or before quoting Bible verse during a presidential forum at Saddleback Church.
