McCain doesn’t know how many houses he owns

Now, I’m not saying that this is because he’s old and gets easily confused about things and has a hard time remembering things. But still…  The story:

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said in an interview Wednesday that he was uncertain how many houses he and his wife, Cindy, own.

“I think — I’ll have my staff get to you,” McCain told Politico in Las Cruces, N.M. “It’s condominiums where — I’ll have them get to you.”

The correct answer is at least four, located in Arizona, California and Virginia, according to his staff. Newsweek estimated this summer that the couple owns at least seven properties.

More at the link. Josh Marshall is trying to find out. Best guess currently is between 8 and 10, but perhaps as many as 12. And these are NOT your usual suburban flat-lot split-levels. These are luxury homes, befitting an extremely wealthy woman and the man who married her.

UPDATE: Yglesias explains why it’s a difficult question.

UPDATE 2: A couple of the homes: here and here.
