It indeed shows how out of touch and disconnected an individual can be when the Republican candidate for the President of the United States, Sen. McCain tells people that a rich person would be defined as someone making $5 million or more a year. He further showed his separation from reality when he proclaimed yesterday that he has no idea how many homes he owns. I would brand someone with views such as this 'elitist'.

This comes at a time when a large percentage of U.S. homeowners are fighting to save the only home they own and know from predatory lenders and loan sharks.

It should be noted that of all the households in the nation, fewer than 0.001% had an annual income of $5 million or more.

From the real estate listing of John McCain's home on the market for about $12 million. From here.
