McCain’s homes are big news right now, which means his “ranch” is news as well. Guardian, U.K., blogger Oliver Burkeman wrote about the McCain Homes in his Campaign Diary. And when he got to the part about the Sedona property at the end of his list, here’s what he wrote:
All of which leaves almost no time at all, presumably, for McCain to spend at his ranch in Sedona, Arizona, which has been valued at $1.1m, but which some people think isn’t really a ranch at all.
“Some people” is your humble blogger, specifically my first post on the topic, Dr. Word Says: McCain Doesn’t Have a Ranch, Dammit! Burkeman even included two pics from the post, which he referred to as “Grainy photographs via Blog for Arizona.”
We’re way ahead of the curve around here.
In response to Roberta: The issue is not how many houses he has – the issue is that he has to ask his staff how many houses he has! and the corollary issue is the unwillingness of McCain to come clean about his assets by hiding behind the statement that these are his wife’s assets. Excuse me, but this doesn’t even hit the first rung on the laugh meter! Myself? I don’t care how much he has – I care that he chooses to deny it – unlike either Theresa Kerry or Ted Kennedy who don’t go around denying their financial worth.
Truth of the matter is, I feel very sorry for the Republican Party this year. When I looked at the line up of Democratic candidates, I thought to myself – that’s quality! When I looked at the lineup of Republican candidates, I said “Thank you, God, who did not make me a Republican.”
Excuse me. The Republicans made a big deal about Teresa Kerry’s wealth in 2004. McCain is running for president now, not Ted Kennedy!
Maybe we should also take a look at John Kerry’s assets or Ted Kennedy’s. Get Real. This story has NO legs.
