Even more on how many houses does McCain own:

I thought the deal with Obama and Rezko was that they bought land next to each other, then Obama bought a portion of Rezko's land from him. Isn't that the case?

Your pie chart seems to imply that Obama didn't have enough money for his house (maybe due to spending it on his campaign) and that Rezko lent/gave him some money that he stole and that Obama was OK with taking money gotten through illicit means. If that is the case, I'd love a link to the facts.

PS - HTML in comments would be awesome.

I forget the exact arrangements myself, but they don't qualify as conclusive evidence, by any means.

The arrangements are such that it bears a strong resemblance to Hillary's impressive work in pork speculation.

I don't believe a rational person can look over them and not *suspect* -- very strongly -- that there was a defacto payoff involved. It ain't no smoking gun, but it is a Trout In The Milk

The house is the least of Obama's shady dealings with Tony Rezko. On the other hand, John Mccain doesn't own any houses, his wife does. They have a prenuptual agreement and keep their finances seperate.
