Epic Flail

A less commented upon portion of the Politicos article in which McCain fails to count his houses. Said article also quotes McCain’s revised definition of wealth:

“I define rich in other ways besides income,” he said. “Some people are wealthy and rich in their lives and their children and their ability to educate them. Others are poor if they’re billionaires.”

The implications for fiscal policy are stunning. I’m sure that the troops would be happy to be paid in cookies and warm milk after a notional McCain administration succeeds in rewriting the tax code to redistribute family happiness to those most in need.
