Yes. McCain's comments about "nobody would pick lettuce, not even for $50 an hour" exposed how delusional the man really is. He can't relate to the Average American, and his comments only amplify that.

Well, clearly many people are picking lettuce and for a hell of a lot less, so what's his point?

Is he pointing out that "nobody" i.e. no American would pick lettuce? And if so is that commentary on the work ethic of the Average American? Or is he saying that "nobody" as in nobody would choose to pick lettuce if they had a choice because it is such horrible, inhumane work?

I think still more context for this statment is needed. At least I need it anyway.
