Meghan McCain: Christine O’Donnell Seen as a Nutjob

Disregard the above photo. I’m only putting it there to remind myself to check my tire pressure later this afternoon.

ABC billed their “This Week” program this morning as featuring “four powerhouse guests.” One of those four “powerhouse guests” was John McCain’s supergenius daughter (if it rains today it’s because David Brinkley is up there weeping at what his show has become), who offered some powerhouse insights on the Delaware Senate election:

Meghan McCain, author of the book “Dirty Sexy Politics,” said Christine O’Donnell, the Republican candidate for Senate in Delaware, was real trouble.

“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.”

In that case, O’Donnell should forget about the Senate and run for president.

Maybe I’m just in a grumpy mood, but it’s annoying when people have to state their own age and sex to remind listeners who they represent. “I speak as a 26 year old woman…” Well no kidding! Actually I think Meghan McCain speaks as a 17 year old valley girl, but what do I know?

McCain also believes that political inexperience is dangerous to the nation, but since many of our problems have been caused by entrenched experienced politicians, take this, like almost everything else she says, with a grain of salt:

McCain, daughter of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said that the message, “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. And it scares for me for a lot of reasons.”

“I just know, in my group of friends, it turns people off because she’s seen as a nutjob,” she said.

Anybody can run for political office, and I thought that was a good thing because it was intended to keep the elites from having an unbreakable grip on power, occasionally resulting in dingy kids with unmerited Sunday morning talk show clout. That’s not the kind of progressive, open-minded “just way left of right-of-center” thinking on which Meghan McCain claims to pride herself.

In any case, that “nutjob” is out raising Harry Reid’s pet by a two to one margin.

Did I just waste time talking about what Meghan McCain said? Sorry about that — time to go watch football now!
