The attacks on McCain’s number of houses is foolish for three reasons:

1. No one really cares.
2. It is a thin issue, easily forgotten the months before the election. It has no sticking power.
3. It is an easy issue to backfire. How many houses does John Kerry, Al Gore, Jay Rockefeller, or even Nancy Pelosi have? I do not know but expect people to start asking. Obama made $4 million last year, flies on a private jet, complains about the price of arugala at Whole Foods, and cynically speaks of those who “cling to God and guns.” And he wants to contend McCain is out of touch?
