John McCain really has me scratching my head right now. How can he not know how many houses he owns?
When a reporter asked him yesterday how many he owned, he had to refer the question to his staff. Huh?
I know, I know, maybe I’m even more out of touch than I thought I was, but I sure as hell know how many houses I own. And I can’t imagine ever being so rich and/or out of touch that I couldn’t answer that question (although I’m more than willing to give “rich” a try).
I dunno. Do the super rich buy houses by the dozen or something? Do they just tell their investment brokers or whomever to go out and pick up a couple of houses? Anybody out there know if that’s what they do?
Oh, I know. Maybe McCain didn’t know right off hand because he’s currently in the process of buying or selling a home and doesn’t know exactly where the transaction stands. Offer pending, check clearing, credit being checked. (Well, maybe not that last one.) These things do take time so, yes, I can see that being the reason.
