A Fleet of Cars

We all know about how McCain had no clue about how many houses he owned. Suffice to say it made him look a bit like an out of touch with reality rich guy who probably doesn't know all that much about the common man and woman.

Now we have moved on to cars. According to this Newsweek article, Michelle and Barack Obama own one vehicle. And if you're into the whole green scene, you'll be glad to know it's a hybrid. John and Cindy McCain have a grand total of 13 vehicles. However, that's not what's making me mad. Instead, it's the is quote from McCain:

"I've bought American literally all my life and I'm proud," McCain said in the interview with Detroit's WXYZ-TV.

Except he hasn't. McCain and his wife own a Volkswagen and a Honda. And maybe a Toyota as there's a debate about who bought his daughter's car. And his wife's company car that she drives around is a Lexus. You see, McCain says one thing in public, and does another thing is his private life. I looked it up in the dictionary, and yep, that's called hypocrisy. I really could care less what kind of car he drives, but when panders to the American working class by saying how he buys American and doesn't, that just ain't right.
