Newt Gingrich doesnt seem fazed by criticism from Meghan McCain that his campaign is just a vanity project.
How would she have a clue? asked the former Speaker of the House in a Wednesday interview with The Daily Caller.
Gingrich seemed surprised by the accusation from the Daily Beast columnist and daughter of Senator John McCain especially since his poll numbers mirror her fathers in 2007.

the mccains are the village idiots.
Meghan needs to run for office OR the press needs to find a daughter of a dem who will trash dems.
She had no business being on the stage.
“How would she have a clue?” LOL! Good answer.
She’s such a dimwit. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, and all that...
I assume she gets a family allowance, I can't see any private employer hiring her at anything.
“Fires back”? What a b/s title. This was, and is a nothing. It’s certainly not news.
She is a joke, if anything she exposes who the real John McCain is, along with his wife.
Clash of the divas.
Good for Newt! It’s way past time someone told the little, full-of-herself twit off. She’s like David Brooks — making a living by passing herself off to the liberals as a “good” Republican.
Dang I love what Newt has to say.
I wish I had more faith that he would walk the walk and not go wobbly.
The queath queen is one mouthy and vile pretender.
Well done by Gingrich. He continues to impress.
No one can dismiss anyone like Newt can. That was great. Baby Megs and her daddy war bucks are out of their leauge.
Can you imagine how many thousands of broken heels she’s left behind?
AGREED! He appears to be no-nonsense, speaks well, and has a long memory. However, he is damaged goods for conservatives, sitting down with Pelosi. That is unacceptable!! But I do like to hear him speak.
While Meghan McCain was speaking at the Newseum on Wednesday, Newt Gingrich was just a few miles away dismissing the Daily Beast blogger.
The Daily Caller caught up with Gingrich at the Capitol Hill Club for the Republican Lawyer of the Year awards and asked him about McCain calling his campaign a mere vanity project.
How would she have a clue? I mean, everyones allowed to have opinions but I just spent the last nine days on the road. Were in the process of opening offices in South Carolina, New Hampshire and Iowa and I think in yesterdays New York Times/CBS poll Im in third place. Im actually exactly where her father was, in third place, at this point in 2007, Gingrich told the Daily Caller while the cameras rolled.
Do you think her opinion will have any sway with young Republicans? they asked. Shaking his head and smiling, Gingrich said, No.
I doon’t know if Newt will win the nomination, but if Meagan is against him, that does give him a better chance.
She doesn’t know spit from Shinola.
In fact if she had dark hair she would look exactly Monica Lewinski.
Silicone for brains gets gob smacked. Nice shot Mr. Newt.
Miss Hogly opens her fat mouth again.
Her Mom owns a beer distributorship.
Maybe Meghan is an official taster.
She has the physique for it.
“Well done by Gingrich. He continues to impress”
I agree. That was a great answer by Newt. I am still leaning his way.
Gotta love the Newtster.
Why, why , why?
sitting down with Pelosi. That is unacceptable!!That's nothing compared to a candidate for the (R) nomination that was the Texas state campaign manager for Gore, the father of the man made global warming scam?
That woman is like a rash that won’t go away.
Meghan... get a job and a life!
I want so much for his head (brains) to be plopped on to whatever we end up with ... and I can still Vote for Him ... IF he disavows his STUPID Man Made Global Warming position of the past.
The rest of his baggage is a nat compared to Zeros baggage
Why did he have to endorse Scazzafava in New York?
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.
I knew I forgot something. I’m sure there are a few more that have slipped our minds.
Meghan couldn’t buy a clue with all of her mother’s money.
Are you aware you are supporting rino Newt with that comment or are you so busy looking for shadows and people under your bed that you would jump on a fellow FReeper with an extensive posting history that you are free to read any time you care to that you don't even realize it?
If you had bothered to take the time, or at least thought about it you might not be kicking tables across the room with your reactions.
For the record, I do not support any of these candidate....yet. Though at THIS point I am leaning toward Cain.
I have been through enough of these to know how fast things change and to voice any support at this time is not a wise or even worthwhile thing to do.
Now, quite being a knee jerk reactionary and wise up.
BTW, if you go back in my history I believe I was one of the first here to suggest a Cain/Gingrich ticket so stuff your paranioa.
I like it!
Oooo, nice try to mischaracterize my post in your stilted perspective. Kicking tables across the room? LOL, stick to your day job. Knee-jerk reactionary? LOL again, you just acknowledge, by trying to msicharacterize, that I identified your motivation accurately. Have nice day ... I’m a Newt Gingrich supporter now, I had my epiphany a couple of weeks ago.
You’re an idiot. Your knee jerk reaction was that I had any motive at all.
Like I said, paranoid.
