On Ora.TV's "Politicking" on Wednesday, host Larry King asked Meghan McCain if her father, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), made a mistake in picking former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) for his running mate in the 2008 presidential elections against then-Sen Barack Obama (D-IL).
"No I don't believe so," she replied. "My father could have had Jesus Christ as his running mate and it wouldn't have mattered."

Does she ever stop running that stupid mouth?
It looked to me as though, if McCain had let Palin take control or at least have an equal voice in the campaign, we could have won that race, and the future would have looked good with a president Palin on the horizon.
I’m not sure he would have treated Jesus any better than he treated Sarah. The McCains will use the name “Jesus” but don’t dare say the name “Hussein”.
Well, I’m not keen on her word choice, but I’m going to cut Megan McCain some slack here. She defends Palin (a bit, anyway) in the clip, and she’s not entirely wrong about her dad’s chances. 2008 was a tough, tough year for Republicans, and after the financial meltdown, McCain’s chances went up in smoke.
Sarah Palin was the only one on either ticket with executive experience and a record of accomplishment. Now everyone knows what we all knew back then:
1) McCain is a faux conservative.
2) Biden is a doofus.
3) Barak Obama easily makes Jimmy Carter the 2nd worst president in the nations history.
She gets it from her dad! If she were flying airplanes she would crash a lot just like her dad did.
Finally she says something true. Obama was the Chosen One. The American People pissed away 232 years of our history and elected an anti-American charlatan. NO ONE could have defeated him.
Ummmm - Larry. I wasn't going to bother to vote until McLame picked Palin.
DO YOU UNDERSTAND?!??
Of the 2008 race...considering the four ‘players’, it was the most marginal group in the past fifty years to run for office. McCain and Biden were career Senators, with blemished records and had shown incompetence at various levels. Obama and Palin both lacked experience, and had short resumes. If Palin had served two terms as governor of Alaska....I might feel different, but she really didn’t have a long record to make her attractive at the national position.
This was one of her better comments, she was asked if it was a mistake for her dad to choose Sarah Palin, and she said No, I don’t think so. That’s about as good as we can expect from his daughter and even Jesus couldn’t have saved her dad. Jesus could walk on water and rise after being dead for 3 days Meghan, I think he could help your dad win an election if he wanted him to win!
Actually, I agree with her.
McCain was such a horrible choice for a presidential candidate, he indeed probably would have lost no matter who he ran with.
I bet a very large percent of the votes for that ticket were ONLY because of Sarah Palin. I know mine was.
“...but she really didn’t have a long record to make her attractive at the national position.”
Part of her appeal is that she is NOT a career politician, but instead is “one of us”.
She would have made a better president than Obama, Biden, McCain, Romney or Ryan.
It was his turn, like it was Dole’s turn. Nothing more than a pathetic exhibition of senior stamina.
IMO, if Palin wasn’t chosen, McCain would have lost by 30 points. Once she was chosen, her sound bites overshadowed his own. That’s why she was so effective in helping him avoid a real drubbing.
It was a very tough year, and every time McCain opened his yap, he cost the team votes. Remember that doozie, him defending Obama, telling folks they had nothing to fear from an Obama victory?
She wasn’t muzzled. He was just too big an idiot to rescue.
So basically, she’s saying he’s the biggest loser EVER!
Unfortunately there were probably a lot of Democrats who hadn’t planned to vote until Palin was added to the ticket. Many Democrats considered McCain kind of harmless but reacted strongly to Palin in a negative way.
I wasn’t really sure Jesus is a Republican until now.
Can we all say "sarcastic hyperbole"?
Can we all agree that any person of notoriety who goes on record being offended by Meghan's use of 'Jesus' will be declared a prude and thin-skinned by the American public?
Why put another white puppet in office when a black puppet will do the same, and everyone can pat themselves on the back for no longer being racist?
actually mccain was leading when he ‘suspended’ his campaign to make the dramatic run back to DC about a month before the election.
when he restarted the campaign he quickly lost the lead and never gained any momentum.
it could be fairly argued that obozo never really sealed the deal to win the election but it was mccain’s stupidity that was the gamechanger in 08.
obama or mccain. America’s nightmare.
Given how that idiot ran his campaign, she’s probably right. But if he didn’t have Sarah as his running mate, the loss would have been epic.
the strumpet speaks
Didn’t Jesus get treated pretty badly?
She flatulates from the wrong end of her body. Family trait. Maybe Obamacare can fix it.
Meghan might have been right but for the wrong reasons.
You’re exactly right. If he hadn’t picked Palin, he would have come in third.
I would have wrote in Jesus Christ if necessary. I did not like neither mcnasty or 0, kissing cousins after all is said.

We can see where the mental illness comes from
Correct answer! 100%
The notion that Palin hurt McCain in any way is laughable. Her crowds were larger than his and she was the reason many of us held our noses and voted for that idiot McCain.
Without Palin, he would have lost 49 states (or 56, if you are a Messiah supporter).
Agreed. People were temporarily blinded. It was meant to happen, sadly.
I can only imagine what it would have been like without Sarah.
Sarah remains the last best hope for America.
The question should have been reversed.
Sarah Palin might well have won if McCain had not been her running mate. Unfortunately, we will never know the answer to that.
The problem in 2008 was the same problem in 2012. Voter fraud.
Bill Clinton was right when he said Obama should have been carrying his bags, not running for President.
She is right on this one.
Even Jesus Christ could not have drug him across the finish line after he made the worst political gaffe in American history by telling scared, skeptical and unsure voters it was okay to vote for Obama when he said “America has nothing to fear in a President Obama”.
I knew at that instant that the race was OVER.
I think Jesus on the ticket would have done worse. As much as the opponent hates God (remember the boos).... Just saying.
I would submit Sarah Palin had enough leadership experience at several levels of government plus the Palin family business. She is a people person. Her administration as President, instead of any of the other 3 participants, would show she would pull in pro business leaders from various segments of the economy as advisors. In contrast, Obama brought in his fellow radical travelers from the academic world and Chicago thugs; socialists who had never held real jobs. The possible exception was a wall street big banker or two. The result for Obama is lots of regulations that strangle businesses. McCain and Biden as presidents would rely friends and aides in the Senate and the usual suspects of do-nothings as advisors. Palin was the outsider who was the only one of the 4 who had the potential to create a recovery. A President really sets the policy and advisors carry it out. Obama doesn’t know how to lead, so he golfs and campaigns. Sarah would be in the office constantly seeing to the nation’s business. She spent the time in Alaska studying the oil industry and came up with deals that benefited the citizenry. That is accomplishment.
Chumbs’ pontifications are unfailingly hilarious.
I would yell at her for saying ‘Jesus’ since she doesn’t believe, but then I’d be a hypocrite. But the point stands.
Same here, I had decided years earlier that I would never vote for McCain, but Palin changed that.
Did you guys see her last pro-amnesty Facebook post (according to Doughy One)? No doubt doughy One will be linking that interview of his (very) secret knowledge that she is (very secretly) pro amnesty: https://www.facebook.com/sarahpalin?fref=nf
