One wonders what original 'maverick' John McCain is saying after hearing what his outspoken daughter Meghan McCain said about Christine O'Donnell. Then there's her row with Sarah Palin.
Kids! You gotta love ‘em.
One wonders if that’s what John McCain is saying today after hearing the latest from his outspoken daughter.
"Well, I speak as a 26-year-old woman and my problem is that, no matter what, Christine O'Donnell is making a mockery of running for public office," McCain told anchor Christiane Amanpour. "She has no real history, no real success in any kind of business."
“What that sends to my generation is: one day you can just wake and run for Senate, no matter how [much of] a lack of experience you have,” Ms. McCain said. “And it scares me for a lot of reasons."
Then came the zinger: "I just know, in my group of friends, it turns people off because she's seen as a nutjob.”
McCain also said that the tea party movement is “losing young voters at a rapid rate.”
Well, maybe. Tea party gatherings do seem to be mainly middle-aged (and older) people. But only the morning after Election Day will tell for sure how young people vote … if they vote at all.
