Money Bags Alert: McCain Unsure of How Many Houses He Owns


Throughout the campaign, there have been various trivialities that have taken on enormous political significance. Nearly everyone can no doubt rattle more than a few examples off the top of their heads -- haircuts, arugula, bowling scores, lapel pins, etc.


But I have a hunch not one of these is as humiliating as this one.
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said in an interview Wednesday that he was uncertain how many houses he and his wife, Cindy, own.
"I think -- I’ll have my staff get to you," McCain told us in Las Cruces, N.M. 'It’s condominiums where -- I’ll have them get to you.'
It’s one thing to be so extraordinarily wealthy that you own multiple homes. It’s another to be so extraordinarily wealthy that you can’t even remember how many homes you own.
