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
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...
She needs to stfu
Miss POTT ... Paging Ms KETTLE
Megan MCCain = Levi Johnston.
McCain has a lot in common with Chris Coons.
Chris Coons is the heir to the Gore-tex fortune - the inventor of Gore-tex is his step dad.
I agreed with the headline because I thought she meant ROSIE O’Donnell!
Was she talking about "commander zero"?
megin mcain is a nut job.
megin mcain makes a mockery of herself
mdgin mcain has no real history or no real success in any kind of business.
hate to break it to meggin mccain but...anyone CAN wake up one day and decide to run for Senator. THAT’S why we are the United States of America.
So there megin mccain is a rebuttle of all the silly things you said.
You would do well to learn from Christine O’Donnell. Grow up.
In OUR group of adult friends...you DO NOT scare us megin mccain. You are fodder for our laughter with your idiotic statements. YOU calling ANYONE a nut job? Megin is the nut job. wandering around trying to get some kind of attention and recognition.
She knows that there are plenty of stupid people in this country who will buy her book.
And, what's your point, Mags?
Yes, the beauty of our system is that anyone (barring a few age and citizenship limits) can run for anything.
The question is, can they win? That is up to the electorate, at least one-hundred millionth of which (myself) thinks that experience in elective office can be a negative.
As I you know -- listened to her on like -- Larry Cadaver King, I kept thinking about something about which Boortz frequently reminds -- you know -- his male audience: At some point, youll have to try to have a conversation with her. I also kept thinking you know -- that she HAS to be from like California or somewhere until I remembered that you know -- Arizona also has like valleys and stuff and you know really big holes in the ground.
