11. If the MSM made even attempt at "fair and balanced". . .
...this would be getting at least at much attention as the Obama elitist meme (which, by the way, is based on what?) or even the Edwards $400 haircut.

But, no, the MSM figure it's not relevant that McCain spends more on loafers than most people pay for all the shoes in their closet... or for that matter that the McCains ownthe 9 mansions. You would think such facts were classified information the press wasn't allowed to mention!
