Some one-liners on the “houses” theme, all gathered from today’s email.

I’m collecting “houses” one-liners:

1. The Bible says adultery is a sin, and the Bible says that the wages of sin is death. But McCain’s adultery seems to have been somewhat higher-paying.

2. At last, a solution to the homeless problem: move them all into John McCain’s houses.

3. No place like homes.

4. Homes are where the heart is.

5. A man’s homes are his castles.

6. John McCain: lifestyles of the rich, famous, and forgetful. He wouldn’t even know which of his lawns to order the kids off of.


7. McCain has more houses than most people have handkerchiefs.

8. Charity begins at home. But John McCain’s problem is: which home?

Keep ’em coming.


9. Home sweet home sweet home sweet home sweet home sweet home sweet home sweet home sweet home.
