Skip to comments.Daughter: McCain 'Depressed, Down-Trodden' by State of GOP (Like father, like Daughter)
Posted on 10/27/2013 6:19:43 AM PDT by bestintxas
Sen. John McCain's daughter says the tea party revolution within the Republican Party has left him in a state of emotional distress.
"Ive never heard him this depressed other than maybe after the 08 election," Meghan McCain said. "Hes so depressed, so down-trodden. The way hes talking about it, he's never seen it this bad in his 30-plus years in office."
Meghan, who describes herself as a liberal Republican, said she shares his sense of despondency.
"Were both frustrated with the idea that only the hyper-conservative wing of the party is going to represent the masses, said McCain, 29, who spoke to ABC News about her father and her reality show, "Raising McCain." The senator's daughter also said she was surprised by Arizona's senior senator recent comments that, at 77 years of age, he is considering another run for the Senate but not because of his age.
"My father has more energy than I do and I legitimately say that, so its not his age, it's just the idea of having another dirty tea party election," she said.
But she says she has no intentions of ever trying to fill her father's shoes or run for any public office.
"Women have to give up so much to run for office, which maybe makes me a hypocrite, because I think more women should be in office," McCain said. "I always say, I want more tattoos and I dont plan on getting married anytime soon so I think those two things might automatically make me not eligible for running for office."

Someone needs to explain to this twit that when a political philosophy "represents the masses" that philosophy is, indeed, mainstream. It is she who is in the extreme.
Maybe McWaco Bird will take the hint and retire.
Gee I hope he isn’t suicidal. /s/
As for the daughter she is really sharp as a tack, she wants more tattoos.
They both need to go away.
When John McCain is gone the only one missing him will be his buddy Harry Reid.
Does this mean he’ll finally go away? Yes I know this is just wishful thinking.
The old loser needs to be involuntarily committed. His useless, brain-deficient daughter needs to shut her fat pie hole and become a hermit.
RESIGN YOU SENILE OLD FOOL 0 BUTT KISSER, LOVER OF POWER AND PERKS!
They only reason you received as many votes as you did was Sarah Palin, we were all hoping you’d go into a coma and never come out for 8 years.
This is the best news I have read all morning. Both are depressed? Makes one proud to be a conservative.
Thank God. May McCainiac suffer greatly.
John McCain needs to go home and help his wife spend all the money she inherited from Daddy. It would be good practice for all career politicians to spend their own money for a change instead of tax-payer money.
Quote from the article: “I always say, I want more tattoos and I dont plan on getting married anytime soon...”
“don’t plan on getting married”? Yeah, just maybe we’ll not have another generation of these bubble headed, 98 IQ creatures to plague our descendents.
Spoken like a true BIG government socialist ... the "masses"?!And who 'represents' them?! We represent ourselves just fine and we're with Ted Cruz!
Ted Cruz gets his power the Constitutional way ... from "We The People". This is what really frustrates you McQueegs. The People have rejected you and your losing brand of weak moderation.
You, and your batsh*t crazy father, are the hyper ones ... hyper-socialist. Be gone.
Time for the McCain’s to stop the BS and join the Democrat Party.
This family just reeks of liberalism and treason
So happy to hear! It’s not fun being a traitor
I think it’s time for him to spend time with his family.
Maybe we will get lucky and he will hang himself....
Y-e-s-s-s. Nails it but good.
IMHO, the tipping point was 2008 McCain actually defending his opponent Obama on the campaign trail.
A notorious obnoxious scene was McC demeaning a Republican on broadcast TV b/c she said a discouraging word about Democrat Obama.
All-out for Obama---as if the short lisping incoherent Senator was Democrat campaign manager.
McCain also allowed himself to be hog-tied by parasitic neocons----their presence made his grossly mismanaged campaign an atrocity to most observers.
But not to worry---McC will suck it up and get happy at those Las Vegas prostitute parties he frequents.
