Fred the Cat, smarter than John McCain?


My name is Fred the Cat and I know how many homes I have. Does that make me smarter than Senator John McCain? Guess so.

Asked how many houses he owned, John McCain replied, "I think — I'll have my staff get to you."

If you know how many homes you have and are embarrassed by the number, what does that say about you? If you just don’t know how many homes you have, what does that say about you? Tells me he is either filthy rich or stupid.

Have a relaxing weekend and enjoy the summer before it slips away.

Sincerely,
Fred the Cat (The cat who loves you guys!)

AND, according to the McInsane one unless you make $5 million a year you aint rich - so for all those $3 million/year paupers, i hope you can at least spend 1 day per year at one of your 7 homes.

HOW THE HELL can anyone vote for such an incredibly out of touch asshole? The media went nuts over Kerry windsurfing, but they wont touch the vaunted Mccain. after all he is a POW and that makes him off limits.

or rather they just dont care, where was the outcry on the $520 loafers and the fact nations dont invade nations

nope, those points are long forgotten by an institution that already has deemed its victor.

no matter what the media does, mccain is and will always be an asshole, i just hope america realizes that

Well, I don't know, Fred. How many homes do you have? How many are owned by your spouse? It's a whole lot more complicated when you're a couple and the other part of that couple is buying stuff willy-nilly and not remembering to tell you about it. Some couples just forget how to talk to each other after a while.

At least, that's what I'm imagining ...

BTW, Fred, hope you're staying dry. A few years ago the washing machine hose burst and the cat who lived here at the time was really annoyed that there was water everywhere he stepped. It took months for him to get over that one.

“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?

“The reality is that Barack Obama’s plans to raise taxes and opposition to producing more energy here at home as gas prices skyrocket show he’s completely out of touch with the concerns of average Americans.” –McCain spokesman Brian Rogers

C'mon dcap, we're rich in other things, like spirit and life. Let the rich have their millions. In fact, since they'll never be happy in the way we're happy, they should have even more money!

Well, since his wife is ALWAYS with him at every stop, it would seem that she would be able to tell him how many homes she has purchased. But then again, he probably forgot.

Yes, summer is almost gone. Stay dry Fred!

Still don't know Obama's VP.

I can't tell you how happy it makes me that John McCain has so many houses he can't remember them all. Maybe he doesn't know how to count that high. Filthy rich and stupid. OMG, he really is Bush's 3rd term.

Have a great weekend. Hope you have plenty of sunshine and blue skies.

Stupid seems to be an asset, when you're a presidential candidate. I am sickened by that realization, Fred. Have a safe and dry weekend.

'Tells me he is either filthy rich or stupid.'

I was gonna say, 'Who says he can't be both?' only Nick beat me to it.

oh well, who says it can't be said twice?

stay dry, sweet kitty.

Fay is headed this way AGAIN. my house sits on high pilings-- so, I'm going to throw an open-house if she stalls out here and we get flooded. =(

Stay dry, Fred, and go give PoP a nuzzle. She probably needs it with this much stupid running around loose, masquerading as a presidential candidate.

Well, see, the people who like McCain, admire this kind of stuff, even the dirt poor ones; he's a hero to them, having all that money. It's the American Dream! So that bunch, the Crazy Base, see nothing wrong with the picture.
Obama isn't exactly middle class, but it seems unlikely we'll ever see anyone get into this level of politican office who is actually middle class or less, earning-wise.
You have to go back really far to find a U.S. President who wsan't wealthy; maybe Lincoln?

Tells me he is either filthy rich or stupid.

Why does it have one or the other?

nothing to worry about here, people. It's standard practice in McCain households to let the little woman deal with the moneyin' so the man can do the fightin'.

so says Joe McCain, sibling, to DC metro TV station, reported in Politico.

you know what, fred? my cats not only know how many homes they have (1), but they even know how many litter boxes they have!!!!

imagine if he picks pretty-boy romney as veep - how many staff members will it take to keep up with THAT kind of real estate.

The difficulty here lies in your changing the word "houses" to "homes". Suppose at any given time you asked a real estate agent how many houses he owned; he would have to look it up, and the answer would be complicated by some that were in transitional stages of being sold.
There's an enormous semantic difference between 'houses' and 'homes'.

uh, no, anon:
obviously, you are no realtor.

I sold my home/house [whatever you want to call it] last year.
at no time did the realtor who sold my house actually OWN it.

_I_ owned my house throughout the process. I employed a woman to sell it because she had the resources to do so.

meanwhile, I see you going through quite a contortionist's trick to make excuses for McCain.

check out your own motives for becoming his apologist rather than bending over backward to excuse his lack of information about his own properties.

most of us DO know how many homes/houses we own. we don't need a staff to keep track of such details for us.

sorry, your excuses for the guy just don't work.

oh, and btw, Isabelita--
you don't have to go back nearly as far as Lincoln to find someone who was poor when he became president.

within my lifetime [I'm 60-y-o], Truman was still not well off even after he left office. ditto, I think, for Eisenhower -- tho he was better off than Truman.

Truman, I know, moved back to Independence, Mo where he lived simply.
