Robin Leach defends McCain’s memory lapse

filed under “not helping

In an early morning phone call Friday from his fabulous crib in Las Vegas, Leach told The Times that he isn’t really surprised at McCain’s odd memory lapse given the complex lives that the super-rich lead.

“He probably was confused as to which homes are in his name, his wife’s name, or corporate names,” Leach explained in his familiar, deep British baritone. “In his attempt to be honest, he put his foot in his mouth.”

Indeed, McCain’s four homes and at least four other residential properties are held in the name of his wife, Cindy, and her dependent children through a series of partnerships and trusts. Their combined value is nearly $14 million.

Leach said McCain “tends to answer questions very rapidly without thinking of the correct answers. … I would call it honest confusion.”

    you know what’s another word for “honest confusion”?

    That’s right: Senility!

    Wow! A definition of McCain’s mental incapacitates is playing a game of “whisper around the table.” First it was McCain had a “Senior Moment,” now it has moved onto “Honest Confusion?” What will it be next before it dawns on how incompetent McCain is to be President, “Geriatric Retardation?!”

  3. well, I have been planning a post to suggest that McCain has symptoms that look like advancing Alzheimers…

  4. lestro says:

    Given the GOP’s continuing Reagan fetish, Alzheimer’s can only help mccain…

  5. Maybe that explains why McCain is doing as well as he is now. He’s so vaguely familiar…

    There’s no point in asking, you’ll get no reply. I just remembered, I don’t decide. {sing along–“he’s so pretty, oh so pretty…”}
