McCain -- Not Sure How Many Houses He Has

In his defense:
1) He is like 1,000 years old. If you asked him how many countries bordered the continental U.S. he would struggle with that as well. The brain connectors are frying out at an alarming rate every day; and

2) When you own $13MM worth of homes, you might think that one of your homes should count as two or three or four and you might be correct.

And The Old Guy was probably a little afraid to answer the question since then he might be asked where the houses were physically located, bringing into play some fear that he might begin his answer with, "The Lousiana Territory, Oregon Territory, that area Mr. Gadsen just purchased for us for $53,000,000, the Indian land we hold for them north of Texas...."

its funny you mention this because I'm currently watching the HBO John Adams series and on two occasions Adams makes note of McCain's absense at the Continental Congress.

Hey, most of the houses are probably in his wife's name or their children's names and there are probably some investment properties, too. He knows the Dems will jump on him with both feet if he got the answer wrong, so he chose to answer truthfully. Frankly, I thought it was funny.

I'm jealous! I'd LOVE to have so many houses/flats/villas etc. that I got confused about the number. It's the American dream!
