Skip to comments.Daughter: McCain 'Depressed, Down-Trodden' by State of GOP (Like father, like Daughter)

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."

He’s not downtrodden per se. He’s pissed that so many conservatives think he’s crazier than a shit house rat. The man is clinically insane.
ALL Mc Cains - father, daughter and wife need to STFU and go away.
Maybe, just maybe, he would feel MUCH better if he would just admit that he is a flaming liberal and switch parties. Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt.....
Here take a few of these.
No, not enough...take some more.
Now...go to sleep.
FOREVER, you weak minded RINO gigolo who can’t fly planes.
Constitutional oath keepers = hyper conservative
If McCain wasn’t a RINO he wouldn’t have that problem.
Same song and dance from the libs!
An oxymoron, with the stress on MORON, she is, at best, a RINO.
And we don't give a rat's rear end if they go away mad, just that they go away.
OMG - let’s destroy the country to cheer up Sen. McCain!
Depressed? Maybe someone should plug him into the wall for a bit of electrotherapy...... (Are they still doing that?)
hes crazier than a shit house rat”
Sir, That is an insult to a poor old rat that does not have any better choice in this harsh world.
Thanks Juan for helping to convince so many that the GOPe strategery of “wait ‘till next year” is a fool’s errand.
When a politician (or a politician's daughter) uses the term "masses", it gives you a good idea of how they look at us -- an unthinking faceless horde that requires their leadership.
Tyrants talk this way...
I thought he was a maverick.
McLame needs to retire now.
Good. Maybe the feeble ole stupid ass will just hang up his cletes and quit.
