Cindy McCain's Inexpensive $300,000 RNC Outfit

No wonder John McCain can't recall how many homes he has -- he has more money than he can count -- courtesy of his wife Cindy McCain.

John McCain and the Republican party are clearly not everyday Americans -- and they have no idea what the US troops and their underpaid and struggling families are enduring. They can't possibly know what it means to be an average American today: someone who's struggling with bills, outrageous gas prices and day to day survival.

Just ask Cindy McCain why her outfit at the RNC this week costs $300,000 -- the cost of 1 or 2 houses -- over 10 times the cost of the average American's annual salary. Yes, Cindy McCain spent several years of most American's salary on an outfit for one event on one night. And she didn't blink for it.

Let's see how many Americans care more about abortion rights than about the fact that they and their families are barely surviving in the richest country in the world. The Republicans have long banked on the easy route to winning votes: convincing Americans that religious issues that barely have an impact on their daily lives are of higher priority than healthcare, income, and daily existence.

Let's see how far Shorty McCain gets on continuing this conservative tradition.
