John "President Bush is 'a man of extraordinary vision and brilliance approaching to genius'" Hinderaker puts his finger on the pulse of middle class America
The latest campaign kerfuffle is Obama's effort to make hay out of John McCain's inability to tell a reporter how many houses he owns. McCain mumbled something about condos and said the reporter should talk to his wife. Predictably, Obama is trying to spin this exchange as showing that McCain is "out of touch."
I can relate, though. For example, if a reporter asked me how many ties I own, there's no way I could answer.
The truth is that McCain isn't out of touch with "ordinary people" because he's rich, he's out of touch with his own domestic arrangements because he cares little about material things, and for many years has devoted his extraordinary energies not to enjoying his wife's money, but to serving the American people. Given the number of nights he's spent in hotels or on military bases over the last few years, it's no wonder he hasn't seen much of his wife's condos.
Wow, nice try! And I guess he doesn't really step on those $550 Italian loafers because he walks on air?
