Sing it along with me: If I had a million dollars...

I wouldn't be rich. In fact, I wouldn't be close to it, according to John McCain, who says that $5 million is the dividing line between rich and poor.

(By comparison, Obama said that if one is making $250K or above are "pretty well off.")

What must life look like to someone who could consider someone making $4.9 million a year not rich, but middle class?

UPDATE: The New York Times says that McCain used the $5 million figure "jokingly." But if it's a joke, it's a joke at McCain's expense. (And I don't get it.)
