While the big news this week-end is Obama's pick for VP (which I think will get mostly favorable comments):
The big buzz in the politico-blogshpere is McCain's "housing gaffe
When asked about how many houses he and his wife have, McCain blundered big time:
“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.” (audio here)
Yet, I think it is unfair to give McCain a hard time simply for being rich, even though this may not go well in this time of housing and mortgage crisis.
I think most people miss a much bigger point here : it is not that he has 7 houses, it is that he CAN'T REMEMEBER how many. Of course, he's 72.... and memory problems should be expected. Talking about being fit for office!
Oh.. the irony!
PS: Well of course, thanks to modern technology, he can always google himself.
