Thirteen cars

Elitist Barack and Michelle Obama own one car, a 2008 Ford Escape hybrid. Friend-of-the-white-working-man John McCain and his wife Cindy own 13 cars. Considering that McCain can't remember how many houses he owns, I wonder how he keeps track of the car keys.

See a slide show of McCain's cars.

What's remarkable is that the party of big business, tax cuts for the rich and bailouts for the obscenely rich has successfully portrayed the party of fiscal responsibility, healthcare for all and labor rights for ordinary people as a cabal of arugula-munching elitists. Being stinking rich (remember Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers and Merryll Lynch?) is not elitist. Being educated is.
