WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Senator John McCain's daughter said on Sunday that Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell of Delaware, a Tea Party favorite, is "seen as a nut job."
"Christine O'Donnell is making a mockery of running for public office," Meghan McCain said of her father's fellow Republican, who recently ran an ad declaring, "I'm not a witch."
Appearing on ABC's "This Week," McCain said O'Donnell "has no real history, no real success in any kind of business."
"And what that sends to my generation is (the message that) one day, you can just wake up and run for Senate, no matter how lack of experience you have," said McCain, 26, author of the new book, "Dirty Sexy Politics."
O'Donnell stunned the Republican establishment in September when she defeated Mike Castle, a former two-term governor and longtime member of the U.S. House of Representatives, to win the Republican U.S. Senate nomination from Delaware.
O'Donnell prevailed with the help of the conservative Tea Party movement and Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor who was John McCain's running mate in the 2008 White House race.
Meghan McCain, who became known for her online chronicle of daily life on her father's failed presidential campaign, ripped into O'Donnell's candidacy.
"It scares me for a lot of reasons, and I just know in my group of friends, it just turns people off, because she's seen as a nut job," McCain said.
O'Donnell has been the beneficiary of an anti-Washington environment fanned by the Tea Party and voter anger about weak U.S. economy. John McCain swung to the right on a number of issues this year to beat back a conservative challenger in his re-election bid in Arizona.
It’s good to be queen...or, it’s good to be born rich...
Meghan accomplished having a rear as big as Michelle.
Consider the source. This woman, Megan McCain, is almost as petty a Maureen Dowd and certainly not as nice looking as Maureen once was.
“I just know in my group of friends, it just turns people off”
She has friends????
meghan, what makes you wake up one day and think you can write a book? does she have any clue as to how stupid she sounds?
She's the daughter of a betraying hack. The media loves her because she believes exactly as they do, but somehow claims to be of Republican lineage. She influences no one and is an embarrassment as a human being.
You know, probably the best thing we can do is just ignore Ms. McCain. Lacking brains and experience, the only thing she has to trade on is her family name, and the celebrity status she claimed as a result of her father’s candidacy. The more we post her drivel and comment about it, the more media outlets and her publicist can create the illusion that she has something worthwhile to say.
Just ignore her,and eventually she will go away. Everything she spews is certainly bio-degradable...
What a dumb frump.
Is she talking about Obama?
She and her daddy are RINOs and she just keeps helping her daddy
when she opens her O.
The only nut job in this mix is Meghan McCain period!!!!!!
Someone tell the skank, just cause daddy says so doesnt mean its true; so go tell daddy to do his own cowardly dirty work or STFU!
She’s the Levi Johnston of the McCain family. A stupid, betraying cow who will be thrown aside as soon as she’s no longer useful. Think the Reagan kids, Newt Gingrich’s sister, his mother, etc.
Such is the sorry state of the media in this country.
Perhaps the mainstream media payoff to her father for his inept campaign in 2008 was giving the daughter visibility on the political talk show circuit.
Beyond being a Post Dramatic Stress syndrome (PDS) victim with multiple personalities (memories), and a lame duck RINO, Meghan McCain is reason enough Not To Vote for Juan McShame.
She is a tool for the left. The day will come that she will outlive her usefulness and they will drop her.
I see here a shear confirmation of what EL Rushbo is used to say...
Them will always tell you who they fear!
What rests amazing to me, is once seen the real treason from MC Cain, the people will still bring him to senate!
Needs a spanking
