Just Like Me!


This many? (AP Photo 2-07-08)

  • I am unsure of how many vintage cardigan sweaters I own.
  • How many albums by Martin Denny are in my collection? 35? 40?
  • I know I have dozens of original Wacky Packages, but I'll have to sit down and count them if you need an exact figure.

And so, too, does John McCain have trouble keeping track of his possessions. How many houses does he own? He's not sure. Cindy thinks it's, what, 8? 9? His staff will get back to you.

He's such a man of the people. The really stinkin' filthy obscenely rich people.

I also tend to forget what color underwear I had on yesterday. Of course, he probably forgets his Depends.

He was being Existential; since he can only have physical presence in one house at a time, any other house he is not in in essence has no meaning, though he does wonder from time to time why his key ring is so heavy.

Oh, and he would probably like us to know that he developed this personal philosophy while crammed in a cage for 5 1/2 years as a POW.

Where ever he is, he is there.

He owns 10 houses.
One for each finger.
Which is what I am shooting at him right this minute.

Never mind his number of houses. Let's talk about those jazz hands!

If McCain did actually own Wacky Packages or Martin Denny albums, he would be cool. Since he's not cool, He probably owns Montovanni albums and Peanuts collectibles.

He must have left all of his flag lapel pins in house #6.

Princess Sparkle Pony said...

Madduane, if that were true about the Montovanni and Peanuts, I'd totally, totally heart McCain.

karenzipdrive said...

Nah, I bet he listens to George Shearing and Nat King Cole.

Madduane said...

Princess, yeah, true. Those things are so far out of the public mind by now that they get their interestingness back. Nobody plays Mantovani in elevators any more...

Linda said...

I think you mean Wacky Packers, unless you REALLY mean something else?

I'm pretty sure I own one house, but I'll have to check with my husband.
