Cindy McCain is a woman of the people. She cooks, cleans, and manages the household budget. She’s a sports fan, loves watching car races–and even knows her way around the Nascar track. This weekend, Mrs. McCain was hanging out at the Indie 200 in Tennessee circling the track to the approval of tens of thousands of fans. It’s a brilliant reach-out to working america. Yeah right. And elephants fly.
Cindy McCain is worth more than $100 million. She owns more than half a dozen residences including a ranch – she spent $11 million buying condos for the family in recent years. Household staff attend to her and her family’s needs everywhere they go. The would-be first lady spends as much as $500,000 A MONTH on her American Express card.
Cindy McCain watched the race this weekend from a luxury suite. And by the way, Nascar is a sport with more inequality than any other—despite marketing itself as proud of its parity: the top team had more than $300 million this year, more than ten times the fifteenth team. Move over New York Yankees.
On second thought, maybe that’s just what Cindy McCain calls competition.
