at least take the little water vacuum out of the pool for the freakin' picture.
 
2008-10-01 12:01:08 PM  
Well done, subby.
 
2008-10-01 12:07:34 PM  
How many cars come with it?
 
2008-10-01 12:09:16 PM  
even the house looks like a retirement home
 
2008-10-01 12:09:27 PM  
That place is far too ugly for my middle-class millions!!!
 
2008-10-01 12:11:15 PM  
Ya right! Like I can find a bank to give me a mortgage these days.
 
2008-10-01 12:12:32 PM  
That's disgusting.

If you had a pad/pads like that, and had all kinds of money, why would anyone want a job as stressful and demanding as president? I would be lounging by that pool everyday thinking about where I was going to go for my next trip. The only reason I would want to be president is to see where they keep the alien carcasses and various other tinfoil hat stuff. Then I would go cut some brush on my ranch.
 
2008-10-01 12:19:54 PM  
The garage is nice, but the house it too overly decorated. Too much clutter.
 
2008-10-01 12:22:57 PM  
Fugly.

The willingness and the desire to serve your fellow man, and to give back to the country that has afforded you so much.

Or, in McCain's case, rampant ego and a sense of entitlement.

Hey! You leave Hillary out of this!

Maybe McCain should ask ed mcmahon for ideas to sell his house.
 
2008-10-01 01:02:14 PM  
I could work with that place.....

I'd have to put in a secure computer network, make sure all the rooms had good wi-fi signal strength, stock the bar and find me some hot gamer babes to lounge around the pool...
 
2008-10-01 01:20:59 PM  
Anyone know of a good Savings & Loan that can get me a subprime mortgage?
 
2008-10-01 01:53:27 PM  
Do you think the real estate company will include a picture of the room where Cindy stashed her drugs?

the pooper? no I don't think they generally photograph those in the housing market.

Middle class if you make 5 million per year? JFC.

I'm farking poor!
 
2008-10-01 01:58:29 PM  
The fashions are a bit outdated, especially in the last chapter, but this book is hilarious.
 
2008-10-01 01:58:42 PM  
I read that in the voice of Rob Roddy.

That too :)

/I still like her, though. I could do without Bill at this point.
 
2008-10-01 02:00:25 PM  
No, I make under $75k/yr so according to Democrats I'm one of the evil rich

Okay, now everyone in the room here is staring at me, trying to figure out why I find spreadsheets so funny. Thanks, man...
 
2008-10-01 02:00:40 PM  
Wow, even if you made $50/hr picking lettuce for McCain, it would still take 120 years to afford that.

Wonkette is of course a source for real news.
In other news, Obama is still a racist thug that went to a racist church for 20 years and Biden still thinks that TV was common in 1929.
 
2008-10-01 02:02:15 PM  
He should give it to his ex-wife. You know the not-hot-and-younger one.
 
2008-10-01 02:03:01 PM  
Look people, you're missing the point. I know it was just a month ago that John said the economy is fundamentally sound, but he's showing us that he's seen the writing on the wall and that it's time we all made sacrifices. He's actually demonstrating that yes, things will be fine, but we do need to cut back a bit and we all might need to consider whether or not it's time to make some cuts. I know it's not easy to swallow, but we all need to think about making do with 11 houses - you know, like they did back during the Great Depression.
 
2008-10-01 02:03:31 PM  
I understand having a summer house or something, but I would be a basketcase if I had more than one house. I would constantly worry about what was happening to them & all the precious junk in them while I was gone-- did that noreaster punch a hole in the roof? are neighborhood kids having sex in my pool? did some intrepid soul cut the power so they could rob the place without an alarm?
 
2008-10-01 02:04:25 PM  
It's a 5,000+ square foot estate with nine bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a seven-car garage, an entire extra gourmet chef's kitchen out by the swimming pools, a 1,750-square-foot guest house, and it's all on 2.7 gated acres.

A typical working stiff's joint. Don't be haters Fark. It's only a bootstrap away.
 
2008-10-01 02:04:31 PM  
Does Palin cum with it?

But the vacuum is $11 million.

Obama is the kind of guy I'd like to watch a football game with. Very relaxed and confident. Definitely one of us.

McCain is the kind of guy who'd throw a temper tantrum if his team lost. Then he'd try to nuke something.

Pretty shiatty gift. If the taxes didn't get you, the electric bill would.

Why wouldn't he be relaxed and confident when he can ordain the outcome of the game with a wave of his holy hand

Good point. Obama's got skillz. Good reason for his confidence.

I guess it depends where the water pumps in the pool are.

When people get older, and especially when they are nearing the end of the road (I'd bet almost anything that, win or lose, McCain doesn't see 80), they start to think about their legacy, and how they will be remembered. And there's really no better way to be remembered than to be in one of the most exclusive clubs in the world, that of the US President.

Throw in a dash of ego, a pinch of arrogance, and a lifetime of having been a do-nothing-and-mostly-ignored Senator, and voila!, you've just explained John McCain.
 
2008-10-01 02:09:30 PM  
See! The economic crisis is hurting McCain too!!!

He feels our pain!
 
2008-10-01 02:10:55 PM  
See what selling beer on a large scale can do for you kids? It is called hard work, and this is one of its many rewards.

KentuckyBob: See what selling beer on a large scale can do for you kids? It is called hard work, and this is one of its many rewards.

And what hard work did McCain do for it? Or his wife?

Here in the USA, everyone thinks they're middle class.

Qualify for food stamps? Have three houses and a private plane? Both such people are part of the same class, and should be pandered to accordingly.

/still can't believe he threw out that number
 
2008-10-01 02:13:47 PM  
It says it's being auctioned. Hopefully on eBay like Palin's plane.
 
2008-10-01 02:14:02 PM  
8 bathrooms?!
I guess so when his bladder acts up he's never more than a spirited shuffle away from the closest facilities.
 
2008-10-01 02:16:42 PM  
I think I'm middle class, not really sure.

But yeah, this girl who is 21, just had her first kid, eats using WIC and is married to an illegal immigrant who gets paid under the table probably thinks she's middle class. lul
 
2008-10-01 02:17:02 PM  
In all fairness, I highly doubt the house belongs to him.
