My Friends, This One Has Legs

When I woke up this morning and clicked "refresh" on my e-mail client, the headline read "McCain unsure of how many houses he owns" or something along those lines.

Thanks, Mr. Magoo. Not only does it reinforce how old he is (jee, gramps can't remember how many million-dollar properties he owns...??), it also plays upon our most favorite political attack: John McCain is a rich elitist who has seven homes, while millions of Americans are struggling to keep the one they've got.

McCain's campaign came back with a pathetic response:

“Does a guy who worries about the price of arugula and thinks regular people 'cling' to guns and religion in the face of economic hardship really want to have a debate about who’s in touch with regular Americans?"

So that leaves one to ponder: What do Republicans have against arugula?
