The McCain’s Own 13 Cars; The Obama’s Own 1.

Newsweek checked vehicle registrations.  Tell me, does the average American own more than two cars? 

From the story:

“I’ve bought American literally all my life and I’m proud,” McCain said in the interview with Detroit’s WXYZ-TV. But the rest of his fleet is not all-American. (so he lied again) 

There’s a 2005 Volkswagen convertible in the garage along with a 2001 Honda sedan. Otherwise, there’s a 2007 half-ton Ford pickup truck, which might come in handy on the Sedona ranch; a vintage 1960 Willys Jeep; a 2008 Jeep Wrangler; a 2000 Lincoln; and a 2001 GMC SUV. The McCains also own three 2000 NEV Gem electric vehicles, which are bubble-shaped cars popular in retirement communities.

Oh, in case you were wondering.  Obama owns one, and its a Hybrid. 

So who’s the elitest? The guy with 9 homes and 13 cars.  Or the guy with one car and one house?

    But he doesn’t gas them himself. This reminds me of my interview with him in June:

    When was the last time you pumped your own gas and how much did it cost?

    Oh, I don’t remember. Now there’s Secret Service protection. But I’ve done it for many, many years. I don’t recall and frankly, I don’t see how it matters.
    I’ve had hundreds and hundreds of town hall meetings, many as short a time ago as yesterday. I communicate with the people and they communicate with me very effectively.

    Do you think you’ll get some Palin time Marty? PLease ask her why she approved the Road to Nowhere after rejecting the Bridge to Nowhere.
