McCain’s houses and the whining wingers.

My favorite come back so far:

McCain spokesman Brian Rogers said in response: “Does a guy who made more than $4 million last year, just got back from vacation on a private beach in Hawaii and bought his own million-dollar mansion with the help of a convicted felon really want to get into a debate about houses? Does a guy who worries about the price of arugula and thinks regular people ‘cling’ to guns and religion in the face of economic hardship really want to have a debate about who’s in touch with regular Americans?”

ZING! See how loud they scream when you have the audacity to punch back?

Hawaii is now the destination of the ultra-rich elite and arugula, produce that can be found in even the shabbiest mixed bag of salad greens, graces the palates of kings!

Of course, air-headed, snark-meister Sharon and the Righteous Indignation Brigade are predictably clutching their collective pearls and decrying “LIBRUL HIPPOCRISY!!!” as if the damage hasn’t already been done. The amen corner can wave their arms about Rezko (a sound bite that the networks are already tired of “reporting” on) and try to muddy the waters but the one key bullet-point that voters are going to walk away with is that Obama owns one house and McCain owns enough houses that he doesn’t have the right to lecture anybody on being an out of touch elitist. He’s also a man who isn’t above hiding behind his wife’s skirt when he’s caught in a pinch.


PS – I don’t know whether you folks are aware of this but McCain was a POW! Who knew?

    In the middle of a housing meltdown, no less.

    The response on this one is so hilarious. A guy said he didn’t know how many houses he had. There is no good spin you can put on that, and there is no counterpunch that’s going to land harder than the entire country hearing that a guy who claims to be in touch with the economy isn’t sure how many houses his family has.

    The whining about this is just the sweetest, funniest thing of the season. I hope it goes on for weeks.

    It’s a political campaign. One would think that they’d never taken a hit before.

    I am a conservative, but this just blows me out of the water!
    I was on the fence before but now Im voting for Obama. We cant have this elitist John McCain as a President!

    In fact your post has inspired me to make a donation to Barack Obama’s act blue. This is the first time since Jimmy Carter I have helped a Democrat but thanks to John McCain it wont be the last.

    Donate If you can and lets march forward to November!

    McCain, who huddled with advisors at his desert compound in Sedona, Ariz., said nothing in public. A nine-car motorcade took him to a nearby Starbucks early in the morning, where he ordered a large cappuccino. McCain otherwise avoided reporters. (LA Times)

    so great.
