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.
Meghan McCain has become an embarrassment to her own family. She has joined the ‘Snookie’ fan club. She’s whoring her name for attention and acclamation by the socialist media.
don’t harsh on Meghan McCain.
she can handle a spoon damn near as well as Rosie O’Donnell.
I’m confused. Mehgan McCain is calling O’Donnell a nut job? I had to read the article to make sure the title wasn’t accidently transposed. ;)
I think Christine O’Donnell has done more with her life considering that she doesn’t have the advantage of her mommy’s money and her daddy’s name.
She thinks she has an opinion that intelligent people want to hear but she’s WRONG.
She’s an idiot.
She is a part of the “Liberal Scottsdale In-Crowd”. She is special, just ask her.
Good point, she’s certainly perfect for their needs - - a “millenial” self-described Republican who willingly disses Conservatives. My only surprise is that she hasn’t been asked to join the cast of “The View” yet.
And a make-up trowel almost as well as Tammy Faye Bakker.
Mommy and Daddy are very close to retirement. Her number is up by 30. Maybe she and Paris can make a “Cougar Whore Unleashed” show for MTV.
Somebody needs to gag her with a silver spoon.
The real wh___ has just stood up
Her dad’s only good thing IMO was his military service.
This girl is a Ronald Reagan Jr. IMO. Liberals love her I am sure.
Living in an age where anything and everything we say is documented, saved, archived, etched in stone,......this young lady is going to be 50 some day, should the Lord tarry in His return, and she will have plenty of regrets to be reminded of.
Who really, really gives a crap what she says. If her daddy wasn't the RINO-in-chief she would be as insignifacant as the dust in the gutter under your feet. Guess daddy didn't pay too much attention to her as a kid and she is trying to make up for it now. Pitiful!!
The AZ voters who voted for McCain for this. If he had lost - Meghan would be a non-issue.
I never got what he meant, but maybe this is an example of just that.
(He also said that about Bobby Kennedy, when Kennedy entered the race after McCarthy's campaign forced Lyndon Johnson out, so that may provide another clue.)
She has a pretty face, but apparently, in spite of her desire for publicity, doesn’t have the willpower to lose weight.
She’s always been shallow and pretentious and her 15 minutes should have been over 2 years ago.
Yes, two of them. Barbie and Ken.
I hold the people of AZ responsible for the mess that state is in.
How could they put McCain back in? Like father like daughter...
