McCain said yesterday that he was unsure how many houses he has

Okay everyone, quiz time! “How many homes do you own?” Now come on, don’t cheat. Aw, you got me – you’re right, it’s a trick question. I mean, how many Americans can answer a tough curveball question like that!

Okay that’s just scary. How rich do you have to be, and how cognitively impaired, to not remember how many homes you have? Folks, this is just weird. McCain’s oddly inconsistent mental state is a serious, valid question in this election, and the media seems afraid to address it head on. Real people don’t have so many homes that they can’t remember, unless they’re absurdly rich, or they’re losing their faculties. McCain didn’t make these kind of gaffes eight years ago, when he was 64. What’s going on?

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.”

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.

Actually Cindy McCain said in the past that they have 8 or 9 houses, she’s not sure either.

NOTE TO DEMOCRATS: This is manna from heaven. Run a freaking ad about this, non-stop. Unless of course you think it’s too mean and you just can’t touch it, then we can just have an independent group do it. Oh, that’s right – you killed the independent groups. Never mind. I hear the White House isn’t all it’s cracked up to be anyway.
