So, McCain gave a shout out to my hometown:

"I fight for Americans. I fight for you. I fight for Bill and Sue Nebe from Farmington Hills, Michigan, who lost their real estate investments in the bad housing market. Bill got a temporary job after he was out of work for seven months. Sue works three jobs to help pay the bills."

OK, first... "Team Nebe", as they are called on their website, are Keller Williams (also the name of one of my favorite musicians) agents. Yes, real estate agents.

Second, I would have liked to hear something like... People from the upper middle class of Farmington Hills, Michigan who pays their bills on time, pay off their credit cards, even maybe save some money in 401K, IRAs, money markets, stocks, etc... are getting screwed because their house which was worth 400K a few years back is next door to a house that is foreclosing and selling for 200K and now they cannot sell their house.

Sadly, that is the reality for my mother, my father, my friends back home... and my hometown in general, as well as so many other hometowns everywhere. Fight for those people, not the real estate agents of these people... and their investment properties.

Oh, I wonder how much $$$ Team Nebe donated to the McCain camp in addition for a massive amount of hits on their website tonight. Nice advertising strategy.
