Why McCain, the POW, owns ten homes

If one questions John McCain with regard to any alleged impropriety or fault, his justification almost without fail references his time spent as a POW in Vietnam.

The latest reference to his being a POW came in response to criticism that he's an elitist and out-of-touch with common folks as exemplified by his inability to recall just how many homes he owns.

"In an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, McCain, 71, said his priority was to keep Americans in their homes in touch economic times.

"Then he recalled his Vietnam experience.

"'I spent 5 1/2 years in a prison cell without -- I didn't have a house. I didn't have a kitchen table. I didn't have a table. I didn't have a chair,' he said.

"I spent those 5 1/2 years ... not because I wanted to get a house when I got out."

He apparently got a house anyway..and then another..and another..and another..and another..etc. He has a house addiction and luckily can afford it. He is past Elitism. He is unique. How many houses does he really have? I think the Democrats settled on seven as a good number. Now let's find out if he gets undue tax breaks on them so he doesn't have to face foreclosure, like millions of others do.
