How to tell when a man doesn't know he's privileged

I was sick the last couple days, but hope to do some actual blogging later today. In the meantime, here's another greatest headline ever, from Politico:

McCain Unsure How Many Houses He Owns

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said in an interview Wednesday that he was uncertain how many houses he and his wife, Cindy, own.

"I think — I'll have my staff get to you," McCain told Politico in Las Cruces, N.M. "It's condominiums where — I'll have them get to you."

The correct answer is at least four, located in Arizona, California and Virginia, according to his staff. Newsweek estimated this summer that the couple owns at least seven properties.

This from the guy who says people who make just $4 million a year aren't rich. Makes your stomach churn, doesn't it?
