Sempringham hopes you're getting a vast helping of schadenfreude out of the "How many houses does he own?" thing with McCain.
So far the Obama Campaign as gotten two good ads out of it:
and this one:
This was all presaged by this video, which you saw here months ago:
We have to admit that we wonder what this really means, as does AMERICAblog:
It's difficult to be[lieve] that the McCain campaign wasn't aware that the number of McCain's homes was going to be an issue. Why wasn't McCain briefed on the issue and given a number? Or was he briefed and he couldn't remember, just as he hasn't been able to remember a lot of things of late?
The LA Times has a good article about what they call the "kerfuffel" here. Our favorite bit:
McCain, who huddled with advisors at his desert compound in Sedona, Ariz., said nothing in public. A nine-car motorcade took him to a nearby Starbucks early in the morning, where he ordered a large cappuccino. McCain otherwise avoided reporters.It's really a pity the convention is so soon. There's no question the Obama Campaign would like to milk this for several weeks. It's quite possible they're holding back on the VP announcement as long as they possibly can, just to give this story more time.
