Skip to comments.Bristol Palin trashes the McCain family in upcoming memoir (Rip Away!)

John McCain and Sarah Palin have long insisted things are all good between them, even after their losing 2008 presidential effort wound up with a nasty bout finger pointing between loyalists to the two former running mates. But the family members of both candidates are not being so publicly amicable.
As ABC News's Sheila Marikar reports, Bristol Palin trashes the McCain clan in her new upcoming memoir, "Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far."
It's unclear from Marikar's report whether the 20-year-old Palin daughter e specifically mentions her mother's running mate, her book does slam McCain's wife, Cindy, for acting like "royalty" and accuses the senator's 26-year-old daughter, Meghan, of being a snobby whiner.
Palin writes that she had a "sneaking suspicion I might need to watch my back" the first time she met Meghan McCain. She says the senator's daughter "ignored" the family during their first meet-and-greet and always seemed to be judging them.
"Every time we saw Meghan, she seemed to be constantly checking us out, comparing my family to hers and complaining," Bristol Palin writes. "Oh the complaining."
Cindy McCain, Palin writes, looked like a "queen" and conducted "herself like royalty." "I'd never seen people with so much Louis Vuitton luggage, so many cell phones, and so many constant helpers to do hair and makeup," Palin writes.

Confirming my long held opinion that McCain was a shadow candidate, not meant to win but to give credence to the “Messiah”. among the unwashed masses.
Bristol is a disgrace.
It says something about the limited horizons of Bristol Palin's life that she found meeting a rich family such a shock. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
Bristol has Cindy and Meghan down perfectly, lol.
Sounds spot on to me.....
The Palin beauty lies in their being down-home friendly people.
Uh oh. I’m not sure if we need a food fight between Bristol Palin and Megan McCain just now, even if Bristol wins.
Ah, well. What will be, will be.
I saw what passes for ‘integrity’ from McCain following the election. IMHO, that man has none. He was more than willing to throw Palin under the bus. That man voluntarily did; what any normal human being could not be forced to do.
Given the role model that Megan grew up with, versus the role model that Bristol grew up with - it would take a mountain of evidence for me to credit Megan with any point; while I’ll take Bristol’s word for things at face value.
Soros “gave” to both candidates.
Furious George runs a lot of this country.
The memoirs of a 20 year old. Fully ghost written. Spare me. Find some useful way to make $.
No she isn’t.
mclame treated obozo better than Sarah.
I support any attempt to tell the truth about McCain. He is everything the GOP does not need.
Evidenced by his "My friends, you have nothing to fear from Barack Obama" campaign quote. Heck, it practically became a campaign slogan.
I think it’s quite presumptuous for Bristol to think that anybody would want to read a memoir by a 20 year old whose life accomplishments have had limited impact on the public. I also think it’s quite uncharitable for her to write those observations about the McCains. But, hey, if the other side (the McCain family) has no qualms at all about being less than charitable, then let Bristol strike for the Palin team.
If Sarah Palin were intent on running for president I doubt that this book would come out. Who needs the distraction of a celebutard cat fight in the middle of a presidential campaign?
Palin writes that she had a "sneaking suspicion I might need to watch my back" the first time she met Meghan McCain. She says the senator's daughter "ignored" the family during their first meet-and-greet and always seemed to be judging them. "Every time we saw Meghan, she seemed to be constantly checking us out, comparing my family to hers and complaining," Bristol Palin writes.
FWIW, looks like Bristol was doing her fair share of staring and judging too. And as for watching your back, it seems they both needed to look out for that.
Catty. So very high school.
Meghan makes me gag too! On the other hand, who really cares about anything concerning John McCain?
