Sen. John McCains daughter says her dad is depressed and frustrated with the tea party faction of the Republican Party, which she called the hyper-conservative wing.
A state of mind many in the tea party can relate to in their radical pursuit of a more fiscally responsible, limited federal government.
Were both frustrated with the idea that only the hyper-conservative wing of the party is going to represent the masses, Meghan McCain said during an interview with ABC and Yahoo News.
Ms. McCain, who has her own reality show Raising McCain, said the last time her father was so depressed about the state of politics was after his failed 2008 presidential bid, according to the Washington Times.
He is so depressed. He is so downtrodden, Ms. McCain said. The way hes talking about it, how hes never seen it this bad in his 30-plus years in office.
An indication that McCain grew accustomed to a more apathetic constituency willing to place blind trust in progressive politicians on both sides of the aisle who have steered this country to the precipice of financial ruin.
As for her 77-year-old father running for reelection in 2016, something McCain recently said he is considering, his daughter said she has reservations about it.
My father has more energy than I do, Ms. McCain said. So it is not his age, it is just the idea of having another dirty tea party election.
After all, one can only take so much of accountability.
Good. I hope it drives him to quit and go home. My dislike for McCain is as high as just about anyone in politics. He’s a clueless dolt.

Meghan, sweetie, maybe youre dad is depressed and frustrated because he is so wrong on so many issues.
Suggest he retire . . . . . . . .
It will be less “depressing” and “frustrating” than getting REJECTED BY THE VOTERS!
Here’s a quarter Meghan - go call someone who cares...
I love a heartwarming story.
If I owned a rat’s a$$ I would give it to Ms. McCain for her opinion. Otherwise, no deal. It is past time for McCain Sr. to retire.
Well John, there is a way out that many depressed people take...
Your dad betrayed this country by stabbing Ted Cruz in the back. He has applauded Obama’s socialist agenda every step of the way.
Sorry you’ve become so detatched from reality you now see actual conservatism as ‘hyper-conservatism’, whatever the hell that means.
Senator dumb-dumb has gotten more mileage out of as little intellectual acumen as anyone in recent history...
Awwwwwwwwwwwww poor McCain, he’s depressed..I wonder if Obamacare covers that
Finally some good news!
He’s probably afraid all his secrets about Nam will be told!!
Dear Meghan: Here’s hoping the Tea Party depresses you and your treasonous old man all the way back to a permanent patio view of the Sedona New Age rock crystals. You can fight each other over the jello pudding cups.

Perfectly understandable why Juan would be depressed by Americans actually loving America.
Better cam a WAHHHBALANCE!
