McCain misspoke (or is generally stupid – I don’t care which) when asked how many houses he owns. Obama’s people ran with it, as was the smart thing, much like McCain’s people would have, had the positions been reversed.
The idiocy came from McCain’s campaign.
Since the houses are mostly in his wife’s name, he (by not stomping on his people and saying no) decided that it was an attack on his wife, and all gloves were off.
So the McCain campaign has apparnetly started going after Obama’s wife.
It’s times like this that the Democrats need to say, “Okay, the gloves are off. We made a comment about you not connecting to the common man because you can’t remember how many houses you own. You decided that, since your wife owns them, this meant that you could attack my wife. Want it dirty? Let’s get to it, you old misogynistic bastard.”
Maybe a cage deathmatch? McCain’s old and sneaky, but Obama’s young and agile. Wonder who’d win?
