Yesterday, McCain made a big deal out of stopping at a gun shop in West Virginia to show that he’s just a regular guy — a man of the people. He even bought some fishing gear. But, his press secretary exposed the reality that McCain is really a very wealthy elitist:
After the stop at the gun shop, Mr. McCain’s traveling press secretary, Brooke Buchanan, said that Mr. McCain would use his new fishing rod on the artificial lake at his 10-acre Arizona spread in Sedona.
Real people who fish don’t have private artificial lakes on their 10-acre estates. Real people don’t have lakes built for them on their estates. That’s left to the elites and the modern day aristocrats. But guess who else has built their own lake to go fishing? John McCain’s bff George Bush:
He also provided a thorough tour, with voluminous commentary, of the sprawling but unoccupied new dream house that he and his wife, Laura, have built beside an artificial lake, which was dug, at Mr. Bush’s request, so that he could troll for bass just yards from the patio.
Now, I know the traveling press corps wouldn’t ever equate McCain with being rich or elitist. That might make him mad and no one who spends time around McCain wants to evoke his out-of-control temper. And, we know the press types like getting invited to the private estate in Sedona for barbecues.
McCain and Cindy are very, very, very rich people. Very rich. When you own nine homes (or is it ten?), you’re among the elite, no matter how you cut it. Really makes you wonder what is Cindy McCain hiding in her tax returns.
