McCain getting stomped on homes issue

It now appears McCain has twelve homes. Count ’em, twelve.

From USA Today

McCain, who has portrayed Obama as an elitist, is the son and grandson of admirals. The Associated Press estimates his wife, a beer heiress, is worth $100 million. Obama was raised by a single mother who relied at times on food stamps, and went to top schools on scholarships and loans.

Time: “The McCain campaign’s constant invocation of the candidate’s POW past is weird bordering on irrational” and yes, his spokesperson tried to invoke McCain being a POW to deflect criticism for not knowing how many homes he owns.

I read somewhere (can’t find the link now) that Obama has deliberately delayed announcing his VP selection because he doesn’t want distract from the media frenzy over McCain’s homes.
