Jus' One of Us Po' Folk


I learn today that John McCain is worth over $100 million. Or more accurately, he married a woman who's got $100 million. I had not realized it was that much. No matter how you look at it, he's fabulously wealthy. He's got so many houses that he can't remember how many--apparently, it's seven--and actually, yes, when asked how many houses he owned, he told the questioner that he'd have his staff get back to him! And here is a guy who proclaimed back in April that a lot of America's problems were "psychological," last month that selling things on ebay was a way for people out of this recession, and in a March speech that Americans should work harder, skip a vacation, get a second job, manage their budgets.

You know, it's really hard for me to contain myself when I think about this filthy rich, half senile old goat telling the rest of us how to keep the roof from falling in on our heads. There are millions upon millions of people in this country right now who are one missed pay check away from ending up on the streets. This guy in his $520 Ferragamo shoes who flies around on his wife's private corporate jet doesn't have a frigging clue about what real people are dealing with in this country. And he's got the audacity, the balls, the temerity to criticize Barrack Obama as an elitist who's out of touch with real people.

Best part of it is, people actually believe this shit. Remember recently when I talked about how dumb the American people are? Just how damn dumb do you have to be hornswoggled by this hypocrite who's one of the richest guys in the U.S. Senate?
