The Atlanta White House?

How broke is the government? They're selling the White House! Oh wait, that's not the real White House, just a replica in Atlanta whose owner, a McMansion builder, just put it on the market.

Fred Milani, who is profiled in the New York Times today, has been living in his mini-White House for the last seven years but can no longer pay the bills on the 16,500-square-foot home. He's asking $9.88 million for the place, which includes a Presidential gallery as well as decor that reflects Milani's Iranian-American heritage.

Ironically, Georgia has not one White House but two. When FDR was convalescing in nearby Warm Springs, he lived and ultimately died in what is known as the Little White House in Warm Springs. While a much more reasonable size, that house is not for sale--but you can visit the six-room cottage.
