In Terms of the Elite, It's 13 McCain Cars to One Obama Car

McCain, the man-of-the-people. The non-elite. But not only does he have so many McMansions he can't keep track of them, his wife wears a $300,000 outfit to the RNC. And this is the person who will understand the pain of the common man, in terms of the economy?

Let us not forget that McCain himself has said his knowledge of the economy is lacking.

Newsweek has a story up about McCain's McCars. And based on public vehicle-registration records, it's John and Cindy McCain: 13 automobiles; Barack and Michelle Obama: one.

The Obamas' lone vehicle is somewhat green, a 2008 Ford Escape hybrid. I say somewhat because it's better than most, but not great. But McCain's?
  • Cadillac CTS made by General Motors (US)
  • Volkswagen convertible (Germany)
  • Honda sedan (Japan)
  • Half-ton Ford pickup truck (US)
  • Willys Jeep (US)
  • Jeep Wrangler (US)
  • Lincoln (US)
  • GMC SUV (US)
  • Three NEV Gem electric vehicles - bubble-shaped cars popular in retirement communities (US)
  • Lexus - registered to Cindy McCain's family's beer business with MS BUD number plate (Japan)
  • Toyota Prius bought for daughter Meghan (Japan)
