I'm Starting to Think MoveOn.org is a Right Wing Parody
Posted by Harvey at 10:00 AM

Got an e-mail from MoveOn.org, which says, in part:

How many houses do you own? Most Americans could answer that question quite easily.

But John McCain couldn't remember yesterday when asked by reporters. It's actually kind of ridiculous. He paused and said, "I thinkā€”I'll have my staff get to you." (The correct answer? At least seven.)

[emphasis mine]

"Know why I'm so rich? I ain't had to pay a barber in 50 years."

You read that correctly. After chastising McCain for not being to do an off-the-cuff listing of his real estate holdings, and after having a good 24 hours to do the research, they couldn't come up with an exact number, either.

Neither could Politico, who asked the question in the first place:

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.

And a Politico analysis later in the day found McCain's family owns at least eight properties, according to property and tax records, as well as interviews.

[emphasis mine]

It's an asinine question in the first place. When you have $100 million, buying a house isn't like buying a house to a normal person. It's more like buying a household appliance, like a TV. So let's ask MoveOn how many TV's they have.

"Well, uh... there's one in the living room, one in the basement... uh... oh! - one in the bedroom... um... does the DVD player in the Expedition count?... uh..."

BZZZZZZZZ! Time's up! You're out of touch with the average American because you had to think about it!

Honestly, I'd find it a lot more disturbing if McCain were so micromanage-obsessed with his properties that he could have answered that question definitively, accurately, and without hesitation.

The point is, he's got money, he's living well, and he's enjoying life. I hope that if I keep working hard, investing wisely and spending prudently, I can grab a piece of the good life for myself and my family, even if it's on a somewhat less grandiose scale.

Ya know, the lefties say that Barack is an example of the American Dream - the son of an immigrant who went to law school and now has a real shot at being President.

Frankly, I think McCain embraces the REAL American dream - having the freedom to marry any hot-looking, cash-soaked heiress you damn well please.

God Bless America.

And rich chicks.

A Perfectly Imperfect Response
Posted by spacemonkey at 10:07 AM

I get annoyed at the all the Obamaniac's and their sacred chanting. Don't you?

Yes, We Can!
Yes, We Can!
Yes, We Can!
Yes, We Can!

So when you hear Obombified people doing this, interupt.
Shake your head sadly and confidently say

No, McCain't! No, McCain't! No, McCain't!

I admit it doesn' make any more sense than 'Yes We Can" but its also pretty hard to argue with.
