McCain's 'Regular Guy' Problem, Part 3

It's not just his seven (or eight) houses, it's not just his trophy wife's $100 million beer distribution fortune, now it's his household servants. Yes, servants.

Here's a new report from Politico:
The McCains increased their budget for household employees from $184,000 in 2006 to $273,000 in 2007, according to John McCain's tax returns.

The additional cash supports an "increase in the number of employees," the McCain aide told Politico. The aide did not answer a question about whether the growing staff stemmed from addition of new properties to the family's real estate portfolio.

Spending more than a quarter million on servants in a single year raises this question: Does John McCain understand the lives of Joe and Lucy Sixpack right here in T-Town?

Based on his deluxe lifestyle, we rather doubt it.
