I’d like my Republic/Party back, please

Actually, the request is twenty years too late.

I don’t know what makes me sadder:

That this man doesn’t even KNOW what he owns

That we have become a plutocracy, where the very wealthy rule

That this man didn’t earn any of this, but dumped his first wife for the moolah (as well for a woman who will tolerate being called a “c–t” in front of the press by her husband, who also finds rape jokes hilarious!).

I wonder if Ron Paul and Bob Barr know what they own.

Mostly I wonder why none of this really bothers anyone.

So much for the old Roman Republic. Hello plutocracy; hello empire.

SEDONA, Ariz.– Sen. John McCain said in an interview that he did not know how many houses he and his wife own, a comment that Democrats immediately seized on as evidence that the Republican nominee is out of touch with the economic plight of most Americans.

“I think — I’ll have my staff get to you,” McCain told reporters for the Politico website. “It’s condominiums where — I’ll have them get to you.”

The Democratic National Committee quickly send out a list noting that McCain owns at least seven different residences. That catalogue includes two homes in Phoenix — one of which is a $4.66 million condominium — and a $1.94 million vacation complex in Sedona, where he is spending this weekend before the Democratic convention.

He also owns two condos in a Coronado, Calif., building — worth $2.1 million and $2.7 million — a $1 million beach flat in La Jolla, Calif., and an $847,800 condo in Arlington, Va.

Democrats pointed out that most homeowners own only one house, worth an average of about $217,000. One Democratic e-mail noted that McCain also disclosed in filings that he also owns a parking lot worth at least $1 million.

He would have known the answer if he watched YouTube. But as we know, McCain doesn’t know how to operate a mouse. Just what we need. (Of course, his military records indicate that he wasn’t so hot at the control panels back then either… nor was he much of a student … but he was real good at being the privileged son of an admiral. Sure would be nice if just once we were to nominate someone whose Daddy wasn’t an Admiral, a Senator, or a President. Kinda hard to be populists when all of our representatives were born with silver spoons in their mouths. Then throw Mitt into the mix….)
