Lifestyles of the Rich and Shameless

In an attempt to snuff the "how many houses do I own again?" flap McCain is apparently getting "help" from Robin Leach, the former host of "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous." I shit you not.
In an early morning phone call Friday from his fabulous crib in Las Vegas, Leach told The Times that he isn’t really surprised at McCain's odd memory lapse given the complex lives that the super-rich lead.

"He probably was confused as to which homes are in his name, his wife's name, or corporate names," Leach explained in his familiar, deep British baritone. "In his attempt to be honest, he put his foot in his mouth."

Indeed, McCain’s four homes and at least four other residential properties are held in the name of his wife, Cindy, and her dependent children through a series of partnerships and trusts. Their combined value is nearly $14 million.

Leach said McCain "tends to answer questions very rapidly without thinking of the correct answers. ... I would call it honest confusion."
That is hilarious. See? Do we count the ones in the trust or just the ones in my name or the ones my wife bought without telling me? Very common problem...could happen to anyone. Robin freaking Leach. Hysterical.

Poor Scrooge McCain and his campaign wishes and caviar dreams.
